General counsel must become global change agents

General counsel must adapt their roles to a globalized world for success

With the onset of international business growth, the power of the Web and access to information anywhere, the boundaries of the world are falling away. Geography and social boundaries are moving from being primary inhibitors to business to becoming secondary circumstances calling to be overcome. With globalization comes change. Those who embrace the change will embrace the future and those who do not will be left behind in the limitations of a world fighting against change. Change happens no matter what.

Globalization also brings about a higher level of thinking and strategizing which will allow businesses to evolve in new ways. They will be teaching people “how to think” rather than “what to think.” They will also create structures that empower people to be leaders within their own lives and the thinking modalities, tools and environments to create that culture.
