Global minded: being open to other beliefs, market structures and wanting to learn from what the world has to offer.
Localist: fully focused on making the local market successful.
The paradox underlines the importance of being both close to the local market and connected across the globe at the same time.This requires someone to be able to recognise their biases resulting from the lens through which they view the world. But also be able to learn how to operate most effectively in any local market without jeopardizing the success of another market in which they wish to operate. To be able to use the power of the organisation to make significant and targeted progress in unknown places. This requires both national and international connection and the ability to negotiate between locations in order to stimulate joint success.
