This is one of the leadership modules offered under the International Trading Institute (ITI@SMU) Internationalisation Skills Talent Development Programme. Limited observer seats are offered to SCCCI members. 

As businesses move beyond local and regional markets—what got them here will not get them there. Leaders will be required to develop a new set of mindsets, skill-sets and toolsets. These include becoming aware of one's own leadership behaviors, styles and impact on others, developing a "global mindset" and the ability to embrace ambiguity, uncertainty and complexity.

This one-day session focuses on the enhancing of self-awareness, areas of leadership "step-up", and enabling participants to appreciate the leadership challenges and opportunities associated with their exciting journeys of internationalization. Using small group activities, experiential exercises and interactive discussions, we will bring these themes to life. At the end of the session, participants will:

  • Appreciate the implications of internationalisation on leadership behaviors
  • Gain a deeper better understanding of their own leadership behaviors and areas of change needed
  • Become aware of key concepts - global mindset and growth mindset
  • Learn how to inspire and motivate their teams to navigate the increasing complexities of their business
