Before the start of the course, my definition of global leadership was the art of leading global teams. However, this definition has improved through the course, since I have understood what global leadership entails. I contend that global leadership is the management of an organization that operates in overseas markets. The change in definition is primarily due to the definitions and explanations I have acquired in the course, reflecting on leadership styles of managers in international companies like CocaCola, and the findings of the final research paper. One of my awe moments was coming into an understanding that the completeness of global leaders is very relevant for other levels of leadership.
In that perspective, the theoretical materials concerning global leadership offered in the course are relevant, and they have impacted me to improve my leadership skills. For instance, despite the challenges, global leaders should be resilient and authentic when making decisions regarding the company by developing a mindset required to succeed in this complex environment (Gandolfi & Stone, 2018). This observation helped me in coordinating the team during my summer work and collaborating with juniors to achieve the warehouse’s goals.

My recommendations for new or experienced global leaders entails skills and performance. I have learned that teams perform best when they are in a good relationship with their managers. Therefore, effective leaders improve their skills, such as being task-oriented, flexible, change-oriented, trustworthy, inspiring, and motivating people (Hassanzadeh et al., 2015). Secondly, they ought to improve in qualities and competencies, including intercultural competence, interpersonal skills, global mindset, vision and the ability to lead change, and personal values and traits (Ticlau, 2014). Lastly, leaders should have a vision and ability to align others into those visions, for easier motivation and mobilization (Huston, 2017).
