Push your team to think globally

In this video from Harvard Business Review Frits van Paasschen, president and CEO of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, talks about his decision to move corporate headquarters abroad for a month. In 2011 his team moved to China and this year they will move to Dubai. “No matter what company you are in today, with the globalization of demand and consumer base, all of us now have to work even more seamlessly across functions and across borders. Anything you can do as a symbolic and substantive act to change mindsets, to change the way people think about things I think is benefitial.”  Great idea, more companies should do this!
