Global Nomadic Leaders

The World

Dr. Katrina Burrus kindly invited me to her home in Geneva earlier this year after connecting through the International Coach Federation (ICF) Leadership and Executive Community of Practice (CP). She’s created a unique niche coaching “Global Nomadic Leaders” a phrase she coined after working with individuals who are:

“Masters of multiculturalism, raised in multiple countries, speaking multiple languages, Global Nomadic Leaders are highly mobile and adaptive individuals, thriving on change and gifted with multicultural intelligence. They readily understand how to run business and manage employees across cultures, promoting cohesion while respecting diversity” Dr.Katrina Burrus.

Our conversations ranged across the diverse set of influences which have shaped the coaching profession over the last twenty years; touching on various social, cultural, economic and political factors. Some of these ideas were captured for the 89th episode of her podcast “Excellent & Executive Coaching” titled “When Sports and Coaching Leaders Combine” (link for the episode download is here) and the following questions provided a prompt to structure my ideas:

Excellent Executive Coaching Podcast

1. What is your professional & personal experience of being a Global Nomadic Leader?

2. How have you drawn from your experience to support your coaching clients & the wider coaching community?

3. What are the main themes that you’ve observed coaching Global Nomadic Leaders Expat?
