RE-GAINING YOUR ORGANIZATION'S INNOVATIVE EDGE ... GLOBAL TALENT – Advanced, Mobilized and Leveraged for Extraordinary Success



Presented by

Scott Hamilton, President & CEO , Executive Next Practices Institute, Managing Director, NextWorks™ , a thought-leader and research organization in which top leaders examine emerging trends and formulate new strategies to move them “beyond the status quo (www.enpinstitute.com)

In a turbulent global economy, characterized by uncertainty, business leaders are forced to re-examine current strategies and their contribution to the organization’s bottom line. Many leaders will turn to best practices—benchmarking techniques that have sometimes been proven to produce reliable results.

While benchmarking methods may serve companies well during times of incremental change and market growth, their reliability is questionable at best in times of major and disruptive (Instagram vs Kodak) business shifts. Even in “stable” industries, a strategy of conservatism and the leadership mindset of being a spectator can be a recipe for competitive irrelevance, loss of key talent and overall failure (think of the wrenching changes at Hewlett Packard).

True innovation and dramatically improved practices are called for across organizations, and yet in most global entities, less than 2% of workforce are actually engaged in creative thinking and the commercialization of ideas. Most CEO’s and top HR leaders intuitively know this, and yet a way forward for most companies has been glacially slow to materialize.

Hamilton will guide our session in the 5 critical steps to “next practices” strategy formulation and will help frame our collaboration regarding the global talent management opportunities and decisions that must be considered for the balance of 2012 and beyond.

TWO SESSIONS in Room A 10:30 until 12:00


(Room A 10:30 until 11:10)
Culturally Thriving or Merely Culturally Surviving?

THE HIDDEN R-O-I of INTERCULTURAL TRAINING

Dean Foster will evaluate the marketplace of intercultural services and products available, and the deliverables that they claim to provide. "Cultural thriving" services like training insures high-levels of competencies, that promote deep and long-term value for the entire organization, while "cultural survival" interventions, like coaching and passive webtools, provides no longterm value for the organization beyond the transactional success of the individual assignment.

By the end of the presentation, attendees will be able to evaluate the benefits of various intercultural products and services, and assess their ability to provide real ROI, for both the international assignees and the organization.

Cross-border Employment and Labor Law –

WHAT A "FLAT WORLD" MEANS FOR MANAGING EMPLOYEES GLOBALLY, INCLUDING EXPATS

Multinational corporations recruit and hire talent in a global labor market, manage virtual teams of employees who are spread over the globe, physically relocate employees across borders and increasingly deal with labor unions on a global front. Decision-makers who recruit, deploy and manage human capital resources, however, encounter multiple regional and local workplace statutory and cultural obstacles. For the unwary and unprepared HR executive the assumed known could turn out to be the unknown hell.

This presentation gives an overview of the critical workplace law issues that HR executives with global responsibilities should be aware of and also provides an update of recent labor and employment law developments in the North Americas.



HR executives will learn about issues such as:


• International assignments – why the fuss about paperwork?

• Expatriate employees - which law applies?

• Managing foreign-based employees – the sometimes inflexible (and nonsensical) local regulations

• The basic nuts and bolts of disciplining and firing employees in foreign countries

• Data privacy and the personal information of employees … just a click away (you think)

• Dealing with employee “representatives” other than labor unions

• The Ruggie Report – global business and human rights

• Labor unions going “global” and cross-border corporate campaigns

5:10 until 5:25

- FIONA CITKIN, Ph.D., is a founder and Managing Director of Expert MS Inc., an international consulting firm specializing in business-aligned Intercultural Business Competencies and Transformational Diversity setup and implementation.

"Expatriate-Oriented Leadership Development: Transformational Diversity Approach and Toolbox"


Dr. Citkin will describe how the new Diversity brand, Transformational Diversity, contributes to developing global cultural competence of expatriates as business leaders—not just survivors of living abroad. This aspect of preparing the expatriates has been largely overlooked in the Mobility framework which, at best, provides the traditional/transactional individual/family cross-cultural training. However, as professional educators are well aware of, the skills to lead modern global workforce can be developed only in a group setting, using appropriate training methodologies—but not in a comfy company with one’s spouse.

Transformational Diversity implementation toolbox is the umbrella for building interpersonal global leadership competencies, or social capital for expatriates: the ability to communicate across cultures, bring people together, and influence all stakeholders. The outcomes are Inclusive Leadership and Inclusive Organizational Culture. Research has proven many times over that these inclusion-oriented outcomes are the most significant contributors to productivity, performance and ROI.



Dr. Fiona Citkin, a founder and Managing Director of Expert MS Inc., is a professional educator and diversiculturalist with a focus in intercultural business competence, diversity & inclusion, and global leadership competencies. She is a recipient of the award “America’s Top Diversity Champion for 2012”. Her experiences embrace a career in corporations (CSI, DVI, Berlitz, FGI) and academia, and being a Fulbright Scholar. Fiona explores intercultural and inclusive leadership practices of today and their transitioning to a new paradigm. Her 2011 book Transformational Diversity: Why and How Intercultural Competencies Can Help Organizations to Survive and Thrive marries two areas of knowledge and leadership competencies: Intercultural Studies and Diversity & Inclusion. It earned her a “thought leader” status at SHRM. Transformational Diversity approach has been tried-and-tested at UBS Investment Bank and other organizations for 4 years. On request of Diversity and Inclusion of SHRM Fiona co-designed and facilitated the special course “Global Cultural Competence for Business Leaders”—which became a new, fundamental staple for leadership education in our multicultural world.
