Purpose – Because of globalization, an increased focus on more effective teambuilding has become a greater priority. The purpose of this paper is to suggest and describe a new paradigm of key leadership perspectives that is of major importance and value to this effort. Design/methodology/approach This paper is based on extensive research by the authors regarding the leadership perspectives global managers consider to be of major importance in the teambuilding that has helped them achieve success. Findings The key leadership perspectives are: paradoxical thinking that nurtures understanding based upon use of both hemispheres of the brain; controlled reflecting that fosters reactions based on internal selftalk rather than external events; intentional focusing that facilitates the ability to be centered on expected outcomes; instinctive responding that cultivates the ability to recognize and use intuitive impulses; inclusive behaving that nurtures actions based upon a concern for the whole; purposeful trusting that places confidence in events and processes that accompany change; and relational being that fosters strength by maintaining positive interactions with others. Research limitations/implications This new paradigm will contribute to science within the field of global strategic management by filling the gap of developing a global leadership model. Practical implications Firms must find new and creative ways, such as the proposed new management leadership teamdevelopment paradigm, to interact with, motivate and mentor management teams to achieve the desired levels of global operations. Originality/value In this paper, a new array of leadership perspectives is presented that can appreciably impact the effectiveness of management and teambuilding in a globallybased organization.
