GlobalEnglish Teams With Best-Selling Author Marshall Goldsmith

Sheila Madden of GlobalEnglish Joins Forces With Marshall Goldsmith on Webcast Imparting Valuable New Strategies in Global Leadership Development

BRISBANE, CA--(Marketwire - June 24, 2010) -  GlobalEnglish Corporation (www.GlobalEnglish.com), the leading provider of on-demand learning and support for business English communication, today announced an upcoming webcast featuring world-renowned author Marshall Goldsmith and GlobalEnglish SVP of Global Talent Management Sheila Madden. The Human Capital Institute (HCI) will host the free webinar titled "Marshall Goldsmith on 'Mojo' and Successfully Leading Global Teams" on June 25, 2010 at 2:00 pm EDT.

"Today's global leaders, more than ever, need to have MOJO -- that positive spirit toward what they are doing now that starts from the inside and radiates to the outside," said Goldsmith. "GlobalEnglish's mission to unify global workforces through communication in English while making individuals and enterprises more productive is one of the first steps in helping global leaders impart their MOJO effectively across borders. The world of business is changing dramatically and our leaders have to reflect that change in their own skill set and actions in order to be effective."

"We are thrilled to be working with a world authority like Marshall Goldsmith to help organizations understand how important it is to the bottom line to develop leaders who can communicate and engage teams successfully in a global marketplace," said Madden. "Marshall's invaluable instructions perfectly parallel our goal to improve personal productivity and enterprise performance, and also our vision which is to digitally-deliver language tools and learning experiences to enable billons of people to connect and become empowered global citizens."

Strategies from Goldsmith's newest book, MOJO: How to Get it, How to Keep it and How to Get it Back, will be aligned with new collaborative advice from Goldsmith and Madden further linking the best selling concepts with employee engagement and global leadership potential. 

A recently released study from HCI shows an average of 38% of the global workforce is fully disengaged from their work. Companies with the lowest percentage of engaged employees showed year to year declines of 33% in operating income.

The webinar will impart actionable recommendations on how global organizations can:

  • Drive business success with leaders who engage workers across borders
  • Expand team capabilities through the common global language of business, English
  • Inspire emotional commitment through meaningful and purposeful work

Goldsmith is a bestselling author of many books including New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, What Got You Here Won't Get You There. In 2009, Goldsmith was recognized as one of the "15 Most Influential Business Thinkers in the World" by The (London) Times and Forbes.

Prior to her position at GlobalEnglish, Madden served as a senior executive in the areas of talent management, executive leadership development and organization effectiveness for over 20 years for IBM, Tandem Computers and The Learning Company. She was also the Principal of Madden Coaching & Consulting, providing executive and organization coaching and consulting to leaders of high-growth companies.

The webinar will air on June 25th at 2:00 pm EDT. Sign up information for the live webcast can be found at the HCI website http://www.hci.org/lib/marshall-goldsmith-mojo-and-successfully-leading-global-teams
