ABSTRACT
This article presents an interview with Joseph Daniel McCool, editor-in-chief of Executive Recruiter News. Executives in the U.S. lack knowledge of the global talent market of the future. Leaders of the future will need to be able to communicate and learn from experience that they have some cultural sensitivities and can be leaders for employees and shareholders around the world. The desire to be a lifelong learner is an attribute. Too often, leaders are close-minded, resistant to change, and that is usually because they have had much experiences and they think they can solve everything. True leaders realize that they cannot do it all by themselves, and they have the ability and desire to surround themselves with other people who can educate them. Company culture should focus on what it is likely to experience within the organization.
