  • Employees in the developing world aren’t used to thinking about the future in expansive terms. Now they can look beyond simply making a living. They are particularly attuned to brand, for instance, because a desirable affiliation may lead to personal advancement—especially when the brand is associated with inspirational leadership, the kind that challenges employees to develop themselves as leaders and to help build a great company that plays on a global stage.

    Not surprisingly, opportunity means much the same in the developed and developing worlds: challenging work, stretch assignments, continual training and development, and competitive pay. In emerging markets, however, opportunity must imply an accelerated career track to senior positions. High-potential employees don’t focus exclusively on climbing the ladder, however; they are willing to make lateral moves as long as their skills and experience accrue at a pace that matches the growth in their markets.
