Developing global leaders in a digital world
As our world becomes ever more global, our ways of working become ever more virtual. Operating across countries demands digitized communication and collaboration – a trend which is also being reflected in the way in which we develop our leaders. But can leaders really learn how to lead, can they develop the competences, resilience and resourcefulness to step up to the challenges of leadership through learning that is online? Or are there limitations to the benefits that can be afforded through virtual methodologies?
This research report addresses these questions, exploring whether the learning gained through a face to face, experiential behavioral simulation might be replicated in virtual or blended environments, and in addition considers whether different personality characteristics might moderate the impact on learning or application of learning from these different approaches.
