Discussions are based on Chapters 13-15. You must post before seeing replies. Your answers are due by Thursday. After that, you will be assigned two posts to review and respond with your comments by Sunday. We value critical thinking, and encourage constructive critiques that provide insights to the focal topics.
Question 1: In your experience (both from your own organization and your observation on other organizations), please identify different forms of management education. Can they be substituted by training or on the job experiences? Why or why not?
Question 2: Read article “The Art of Developing Truly Global Leaders” by Beth Brooke: https://hbr.org/2012/11/the-art-of-developing-truly-global-leaders (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. Organizations often use international assignments as important practices in global leadership development. However, the evaluation of the assignments is often focused on the leaders’ performance but lack of assessment on the developmental benefits to the leaders. If you were given the task to identify the developmental benefits of an international assignment, what would be the most important aspect that you would examine? How would you measure the benefits?
Question 3: In some organizations, cultural diversity efforts meet with resistance from key managers and employees. Identify at least one reason for this resistance and recommend ways it can be overcome. Support your recommendations.
