    Effective global leaders must be able to recognize current and future trends in their industry and determine the best ways to address those trends. Select three of the following trends in global business, and then choose the leadership theory or model you believe would allow you, as a global leader, to effectively address each trend. You should choose a different theory or model for each trend.

This realignment is relevant to business leaders because there will be new opportunities for US businesss in Russia and UK. At the same time opportunities for US businesses in the EU may become relatively lower.

    The leadership theory that I would like to use to address this trend is the Situational Leadership theory by Hersey-Blanchard. According to this theory no single leadership style is best. The most effective leaders are those that are able to adopt their style to the situation and look at ones such as the type of task.

    The application of this theory to the Geopolitical realignment is that the business leaders must be able to adopt their style to the emerging Geopolitical realignment.
