At this time in history, leaders need new ways of being, thinking and decision making to deal with the inherent complexity, ambiguity, and uncertainty in the global business environment and on the planet.  Management capability, intercultural competence, and interpersonal skills were recently cited in research as the greatest challenges and the greatest opportunities for the growth of global organizations and their leaders in the 21st Century.

Lead by Barrie Zucal, President and CEO, Global Coaches Network (GCN has 150 global leadership coaches located in 50 countries.  It is a pioneer in the field of global leadership development and coaching, partners with leaders in business and government organizations, and global MBA programs to design and deliver individual and group executive development coaching programs. These programs maximize ethical leadership capability, build global leadership competence and a global mindset, intercultural, and interpersonal competence, and improve interpersonal skills while the leaders are resolving their business challenges.

In this television program, Barrie Zucal and her female colleagues at Global Coaches Network, who are also global business owners, explore the synergy between what the world needs of its leaders and the perspectives, attributes, and moral development that women leaders bring to the world.  They give powerful examples of how organizations, the environment, and the global community all benefit when there are more women on boards, and in the senior leadership in organizations.Barrie is a global coach and the president and CEO of Global Coaches Network.  Barrie understands the challenges related to performance issues and in the workplace and can help leaders and their teams get beyond their differences in areas such as gender, culture, race, and religion to achieve their business objectives.

Conclusions indicate that organizations must focus more on long term goals and values such as safety of their people rather than short term profits.  Leadership must more heroic and based on ethics rather than egoic shaped by fear other ego needs.  Leaders must have a global mindset as well as a local mindset to think beyond the boundaries of their own experience and their own cultures.
