The Brexit campaign of 2016 proclaimed that quitting the European Union would reinforce both the United Kingdom economy and its global relevance. It portrayed the EU as a sort of a giant parasite that consumed enormous national resources that could otherwise be spent directly on British interests - the most notorious, and now debunked example being the British National Health Service.

I returned a week later to be informed by my CEO that my expensive trip had achieved very little. I’m glad to say my intercultural competence advanced rapidly after this early foray but I wish I’d been thrown into unfamiliar territory much closer to home at the start of my HR career in international business. Too much executive development happens in-house or in the classroom and this can fail to prepare future talent to operate as agile and sensitive leaders.
