Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter integrates the arguments presented in the previous chapters. Different virtues tend to support different roles, activities, and competencies. Therefore, global leaders must combine different virtues for being effective and a source of positive impact. Thus, the chapter suggests the relevance of strengths is contingent upon the global leaders’ roles and missions. Reciprocal influences between strengths are also discussed. The chapter also suggests that human strengths and virtues may serve as facilitators and enablers of global leader development. Finally, the chapter points out some research directions.

Keywords: clusters of strengths; reciprocal influences; contingency factors; global leadership development; experiential learning theory; research directions
