Here's some really interesting observations from Tsedal Neeley about working in global environments. She describes how a 'global work orientation' can be valuable to cultivate for anyone who works for multinationals or in global careers.

According to Tsedal Neeley 'global work orientation' consists of 5 key actions:

1. Embracing positive indifference. 

2. Seeking commonality between cultures

3. Identifying with the global organisation rather than your local office

4. Seeking interactions with other, geographically distant subsidiaries

5. Aspiring to a global career

Well worth reading for anyone managing or working in global team environments.
