Abstract
Businesses that develop international trade must successfully network with transnational businesses, which in turn connects them with foreign governmental agencies, and global business professionals. Thus, studies of the connectivity between leaders and successful international businesses must continue in order to examine trends in ethics, attitudes and behaviors of the organizations. Likewise, organizational leaders who aspire to gain international success must be strategic in their approach, and mindful of their own ethics, attitudes and behaviors. Societal change, access to information, and international commercial engagement have enabled regional peoples who were formerly economically disadvantaged to have access to income; while such engagement has also shifted income from those who historically were in regions that were economically advantaged.
