Günter K. Stahl, Mark E. Mendenhall, Mihaela Dimitrova

Publication: Chapter in book/Conference proceedingChapter in edited volume


Andreas Weber’s mind would not stop racing. Andreas remembered the occasion clearly; Marrie Görner, the Managing Director, had walked into his office at the Frankfurt headquarters of his bank, and offered him the chance to participate in a company-wide international leadership development program. Andreas felt confident that he had made the right decision in accepting the offer and in pursuing an international career. Andreas remembered the day of his arrival as if it were yesterday. In the fifth year of his assignment, Andreas made another step upward in his career. After several weeks of consideration and discussion, Lina and Andreas decided to move back to Germany. The memory of reading the offer, and the resulting emotions of anger, betrayal, disbelief, and frustration, all came back to him.
