Mentors used to be someone you found informally — they were successful people that you tried to emulate. No one really tried to formalize the mentorship process until about 25 years ago, when the first systematic mentorship studies were published, according to Dr. Romila Singh.

But do organizations need a mentorship program? Not all successful relationships depend on formal, systematic programs. And not all forms of mentorship need to come from mentors. People find help from a variety of sources with varying degrees of interaction — coaches, sponsors, and friends can all help you through your career.

Global Workforce: Creating a Global Mindset.

Achieving a balance between the time devoted to family and to work is difficult for anyone. But if that needs to be done in a foreign country, the task is even harder.

As the Richard C. Notebaert Distinguished Chair of International Business and Global Studies, Dr. Margaret Shaffer has undertaken research that focuses on understanding cross-cultural experiences, especially in the areas of expatriate adjustment and performance and life balance. She teaches in the graduate and undergraduate programs in the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Lubar School of Business.

In the video she states that both corporate expatriates and self-expatriates have found it easier to work globally; the barriers to work in different countries are less now than ever before. In her opinion, workers simply need to create a global mindset as well as global knowledge and expertise. According to Shaffer, these skills will allow employees to operate easily with a broad range of customers and suppliers from across the world.

The Center for the Study of the Workplace shares some of Dr. Shaffer’s research findings.  A model of expatriation and family performance can be retrieved by clicking here, while the influence of expatriation on career advancement can be found by clicking here.
