Managers from developing markets make better global business leaders

"Are you a terrorist or a spy?" I was asked. Intuitively I smiled, maybe I shouldn't have, but I have found a smile can diffuse a situation and honestly I did find the question a little funny. Here I was sitting in a police station somewhere in Africa on the border of two countries, 30 minutes earlier I was arrested for what was deemed suspicious behaviour. Unable to prove who I was or what I was doing, I was whisked away for interrogation.
