“It wasn’t just about professional development but also learning to be more of a global citizen. Every culture has something special. How do we as leaders take the best from those diverse cultures? Whether we’re living there or we’re just working with a team in another country, how do we not just impose our way but really learn to bring out the best in people and make it something better than it would if it was just one homogenous group?”
