The world is increasingly becoming more interconnected as more products and services are exchanged across countries. Globalization has posed challenges for the global leaders of organizations. Leaders, especially global leaders, are expected to be effective in various cultural settings—indeed, effective with diversity itself. Global leaders develop alternative ways of working across diverse employees so that members manage cultural conflicts and take advantage of those conflicts. Although facing challenges, Asia continues to strengthen its position as the epicenter of global growth and economic activity. Organizations in Asia demand leaders who can manage conflicts and foster cooperation among employees. These global leadership skills are difficult to develop. However, Asian managers working in collectivist organizational cultures have the advantage of learning these global leadership skills.
