International Commuters: Understanding the Benefits and Challenges | Expatriatus | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

See on Scoop.it - Global Leaders.  In case your employer offers you a job in a foreign country subsidiary, but relocation is undesirable for several personal and family reasons, would you consider becoming an international commuter ?

Anne Egros's insight:

 Do you think International commutes are beneficial on the long run for both the employees and employers ?


Personally I don't think it is a good thing because you can't learn a foreign language and a culture if you don't live at least  2-3 years in the same country , preferably with your family.

Russia is in the WTO: More business cooperation with foreigners?

Russia is in the WTO: More business cooperation with foreigners? | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
It is a coincidence that Russia’s long-awaited accession to the World Trade Organisation last August was followed by mounting concerns about a slowdown in economic growth.
Anne Egros's insight:

The news out of Russia tends to paint a dark picture of a country and its leader.


Away from the headlines, however, changes of another sort are taking place – less talked about in the press but no less real for the businesses that have ridden Russia’s boom, bust and recovery under president Vladimir Putin.

 

"Since the economic downturn of 2009 there has been a new openness to foreign business, says Philippe Pegorier, country president and general director of French engineering giant Alstom, who has experienced the changes in Russia for 30 years. “There is a real will at the top to modernise infrastructure and industry, and to fight corruption,” says Mr Pegorier"

 

Frank Schauff, head of the Association of European Businesses, which represents more than 600 big companies in Russia, believes the crisis taught the Kremlin that it could only get ahead in co-operation with foreigners. “

 

 Joerg Schreiber, president and managing director of Mazda Motor Russia, concurs: “We have seen a shift in the attitude to foreign business. It’s one thing to say on paper it’s a good thing, another to embrace it and let it merge and mingle with local business.”


 Japanese carmaker Nissan now employs just eight Japanese and nine British staff. The factory, which opened in 2009, won the company’s global quality award last year.

Russia is shaping its future:

Shaping Russia’s future, finds that, although it still faces some challenges, Russia remains an attractive destination for FDI.

 

There is a substantial gap between the perceptions of current and prospective investors. Those who are already working in Russia are more aware of the country’s real investment climate and the efforts being made to improve it.

Anne Egros's insight:

Not living in the same country with your family is detrimental for learning fully about the culture. Local employees may also treat you as an outsider, not really part of the team as you can’t share social events involving partners or children.


Each family situation is different but if you embrace expatriation as a great way to grow then I prefer to do it with the whole family. However I understand that sometimes other considerations such as schooling system or health care or dangerous locations may give no choice but commuting, I think this situation should be exceptional and not exceed 1 year.

 

I am not surprised that long-distance commuters have 40 percent higher risk of separation compared to other people who already have 50 percent chance to get divorced in most countries nowadays.

 

And yes the tax filing can become a nightmare and a costly exercise, especially for US residents and citizen

5 Signs Your Leadership Style Is Outdated - Forbes

5 Signs Your Leadership Style Is Outdated - Forbes | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
5 Signs Your Leadership Style Is Outdated
Forbes
Many leaders in the workplace have lost their competitive edge. They lack the substance that is required to be an effective and sustainable leader.
Anne Egros's insight:

Technology is spreading new ideas globally and so fast that knowledge is not anymore the advantage of leaders.

 

Knowledge is free but inspiring others comes with a cost: you must re-invent yourself to stay attuned with changes around you. 

 

Never before, we have seen three generation of leaders in the same workplace. The 20-30 challenge up the 35-45 and the late baby boomers 50+ may not be able to satisfy the needs of those who are changing the world around them.

 

Making bad decisions? You may have become so arrogant and blinded by your past success that you don't have the humility to listen to your team members. 

 

When is the last time you took time to think about your impact as a leader? Did you ask for feedback from bottom-up? Are you interested only in your own career advancement? 

 

Asking questions is more powerful than giving answers, do you know how to mentor and coach others around you so they enjoy what they do and don't call it work?

Great scoop and fantastic insight Anne!  I have seen some senior leaders put in great efforts to update their leadership.  It is great to see!

donhornsby's curator insight, October 29, 2013 5:27 AM

(From the article): Leadership is all about taking risks and knowing when to take them.   If you don’t feel comfortable being uncomfortable  – courageous enough to see and seize opportunities that others don’t and do what others won’t – it is impossible to be  an effective leader.   These are the fundamentals of sustainable leadership.   So look around you and ask yourself the following question:  Has your leadership style become outdated?

Menno Molendijk's curator insight, October 30, 2013 1:30 AM

"While it may feel as if the tigers are lurking, today few of us face this kind of threat.  Instead we face ongoing, persistent threats tied to complex relational issues such as doing more work with less, talent shortages, and economic uncertainly. At work, the “tigers” are often other people; according to the 2012 Workplace Issues study, over 70% of challenges in the workplace are people-related. "
