What is the Global Leadership Assessment?
The Global Leadership Assessment (GLA360) is a 360 leadership assessment rooted in groundbreaking research conducted by Marshall Goldsmith (#1 Leadership Thinker and Executive Coach), involving CEOs of Fortune 100 companies, global thought leaders, and international business executives of organizations on 6 continents.
Whereas most assessments are created by a coach or statistician, the GLA360 is the first and only assessment in the market created by multinationals, for multinationals.

Organizations use the GLA360 for leadership development, succession planning and talent management to assure that leaders succeed in international roles.
The GLA360 is typically used for Leaders who:
- Lead an internationalizing business
- Are country managers
- Manage diversity and across cultures while interacting with stakeholders in their functional responsibilities related to e.g. supply chain, human resources and finance
- Lead international functional or project teams

How does it work?
The assessments is done through a comprehensive survey containing 72 questions (5 points Likert scale) plus 3 open questions for verbatim feedback which results in a 75+ page comprehensive report available in multiple languages.
The process collects data from the leader and a group of selected raters to get a bird’s-eye view of performance in meaningful competencies. The Leader will get valuable insight about the specific behaviors that drive the competency scores. After working hand in hand with us, the leader will know the exact areas that they excel in and 1-2 high value leadership growth areas.
The process requires 2 sessions of about 90-120 minutes with the Leader which can also be done online. More specifically:
- We work together with the Leader in order to select the raters during the first session.
- We distribute the electronic asseessments.
- We collect the reports.
- We analyze the data.
- We host a debrief session with the Leader.
The GLA360 can be coupled with Behavioral Interviews with selected relevant stakeholders in order to add color and complete the picture of the performance levels and the key leadership areas to be improved.
