What Is Global Leadership?

August 30, 2019 by Vicki Flier Hudson No Comment

What Is Global Leadership? Working in the corporate sector gives me great access to the latest business buzz words. They come and go about every couple of years, and some of them are more useful than others. Remember when you couldn’t walk down a company hallway without hearing the word “synergy?” I personally like some ...

Highroad Turns 15 Years Old: My Story of Building Bridges

May 30, 2019 by Vicki Flier Hudson No Comment

This past Tuesday my company, Highroad Global Services, turned 15 years old. I am a nostalgic sort, and I couldn’t help looking back to May 28, 2004 and remembering what it was like to commit to something I believed in wholeheartedly (and still do). My last day at my corporate job was very exciting. My ...

My Gift to You: The Secret of Success in Global Teams, Live Performance, and Life

December 19, 2013 by Vicki Flier Hudson 3 Comments

As the year 2013 winds to a close I thought long and hard about what I might offer to you, my clients and colleagues, as a gift. Sure, I could send the obligatory fruitcake (does anyone actually eat those?) but then I asked myself, what is the biggest lesson I learned this year? What made ...

The Gulf Breeze Dream: Part 3

September 27, 2009 by Vicki Flier Hudson No Comment

The magic of life, that’s what I seek. I also try to make a contribution of magic through stories and connections each and every time I speak or train. They say what you give you get back, and about a year ago I was given one of the greatest gifts of my career – the ...

A Day of Inspiration with A Multicultural Group

September 7, 2009 by Vicki Flier Hudson 1 Comment

I have no idea what mystery factor makes up a positive, inspiring group dynamic, why some groups mesh together so well and others don’t. In my work I see all kinds, but I am always in awe of a group of people that come together with me, a total stranger, to have a day of ...

All About Korea: A Healthy Obsession

August 16, 2009 by Vicki Flier Hudson 2 Comments

Lately my life has been all about Korea, and this obsession has been almost entirely voluntary. A client asked me a few weeks ago to come to Dallas and conduct a series of programs on working with South Koreans. I relished the thought, because although I’m quite familiar with Korean culture I suddenly found myself ...

A Day in Montreal, Quebec

April 21, 2009 by Vicki Flier Hudson 1 Comment

I love Canada! After a successful training in Brockville, I was back in my tiny Hyundai and headed up the Kings Highway along the St. Lawrence river back to Montreal. The training had fascinated me because of the cultural differences that showed up right there in the classroom. The group was warm, receptive and had ...

O Canada!

April 14, 2009 by Vicki Flier Hudson 1 Comment

What a day -a new country and a new culture, all under sunny skies. Of all of the places I’ve been in the world, I’ve never visited Canada, so I hopped out of bed easily this morning at 6am and headed for the airport to conduct a training on doing business with India. The weather ...

Where the Highroad Meets the Stars in Wapakoneta, Ohio

February 15, 2009 by Vicki Flier Hudson No Comment

On the Highroad, you never know where two paths that seem unrelated will intersect. For the first several years of my life I wanted to be an astronaut, like many little kids in my culture. But the obsession didn’t wear off with time. I attended flight school for three years in hopes of reaching NASA ...

The Gulf Breeze Dream: Part One

January 16, 2009 by Vicki Flier Hudson 2 Comments

I’m sitting in Pensacola Beach, Florida overlooking the Santa Rosa sound and waiting for the sun to go down. Apparently you can walk out to the pier around sunset and see a cornucopia of sea critters. Being fond of critters of most kinds I’m looking forward to this. But as I type and watch the ...
