Abstract

This chapter focuses on global leadership competencies and orientations with specific reference to theory, practice, and future implications. A critical analysis of existing studies on global leadership competencies and orientations indicated that several global leadership competencies exist such as global business expertise, global organizing expertise, and visioning while global leadership orientation/mindset has been identified as an influencing factor in the learning and application of global leadership competencies by global leaders which often leads to effective global leadership. In determining the role of goal orientation in global leadership competencies, evidence from previous studies revealed that goal orientation inputs such as team learning orientation and team performance orientation contributes positively to collective global leadership effectiveness. Finally, the barriers to global leadership competencies and orientations were identified and solutions were proffered to limit the negative effects on global leadership effectiveness in business environments.
