Why GlobalNext?

CapitaPartners created GlobalNext to help emerging business leaders worldwide build and flex new muscles at a critical time in their development. 

Over the course of 30 years, our coaches have interviewed and assessed hundreds of global leaders across five continents. We've seen up close how successful executives navigate across mature and immature markets, cultures, borders, and economic systems. We know from our in-depth research and experience that these kinds of complex global roles demand tenacity, adaptability and flexibility.

Our mission is to help successful global-minded executives grow into inspired leaders.

What happens during a GlobalNext workshop?

During the GlobalNext workshop, you will accelerate your leadership growth and meet other executives who share your desire to win a seat at the table. Our program begins with a foundation of deep self-knowledge and self-awareness, and instills a commitment to continual professional growth. We then pull back to look at the bigger picture: how do leaders navigate the local and global simultaneously? Finally we strategize on how to lead effective trans-border teams and create win-win-win outcomes.

We begin by asking: just what is a global next leader — and how do I become one? We delve into the personal attributes and motivation needed for such demanding roles, and explore the self-knowledge that is required to be effective, stay energized, and bounce back after the inevitable setback.

day 2: looking out

Our second day focuses on how to embrace the complexity and ambiguity that are part and parcel of global leadership. GlobalNext leaders have to draw their own roadmap, toggle between the local and global, and find clarity even when everything is hazy. We also work on how to establish vision and trust with a diverse, multicultural team.

The final half-day program leaves participants with a concrete action plan for building influence and garnering support, and a framework for creating win-win-win outcomes — in which the leader, organization and partners up and down the value chain all benefit. We believe that global leaders today need to find solutions that go beyond the immediate fix.

What people are saying about our executive coaching...


“The best thing that’s happened to me in my professional career. Coaching is about challenging sometimes uneasy truths about yourself. But if you choose to let go and dive into it without prejudice, you may find coaching a liberating and boosting experience – both for your professional and social life. And if it feels hard – well, it just probably means you’re doing it right."

Vice President & Managing Director for japan ans asia-pacific of a leading tech company:

"Michael has the ability to stand back, observe people and guide them to realizing solutions to their challenges. His ability to challenge the person while ensuring their comfort is amazing, and allows for remarkable breakthroughs.”





"I found Michael Bekins' coaching to be immediately beneficial and I leaned heavily upon his 'returning expat' experience to facilitate my successful transition. Michael is smart, thoughtful and caring and I found him to be an invaluable resource.”
