Globally minded: to be agnostic about belief system and market structure and be a student of the world.
Localist: to be fully committed to the success of a local market.
The paradox is the need to be both deeply embedded in the local market and connected across the globe at the same time. This requires someone to be able to recognise their biases resulting from the lens through which they view the world. It is learning how to operate most effectively in any environment, without compromising the success of another market in which they wish to operate.
With global and local connectivity, and the ability to negotiate between environments, leaders will be able to harness the power of the organisation in its largest sense and to make significant and purposeful progress in unfamiliar places.
