Global Leadership Competence Instrument

Global Leadership Gap Analysis

I work with many global companies determined to grow global business leaders. When I ask them “What does that mean?” they frequently say “We don’t know.” That’s why I developed this tool – to be a working definition of the competencies of global business leaders for companies that don’t have their own.

The Global Leadership Competence Instrument (GLCI) is a self-assessment tool to support your growth as a global leader and manager. What will it take for you to become the kind of global leader you admire? YOU decide, and this tool can help.

The Global Leadership Competence Instrument (GLCI) enables you to define excellent performance as a global leader and manager in YOUR business context, and measure yourself against that definition. Rank yourself on 35 factors in 5 leadership areas culled from the thought leadership literature on what it takes to be a truly effective global leader.

The instrument comes with:

1. Power Point Overview and Scoring Guideline.
2. Excel Spreadsheet to automatically graph your results.

Please send a PayPal payment of $19.95 to to purchase the GLCI.

Note: Academics and HR Leaders wishing to preview the GLCI can contact us to obtain a complimentary copy.
