Extending leadership skills into the global context

The Global Leadership Accelerator (GLA) helps managers and leaders to boost the skills they need to work successfully in an international and multicultural context.

The Global Leadership Accelerator (GLA) will help a manger or leader build on their existing experience in order to  extend existing competences and develop new skills and approaches for leading in a multicultural context.  So it will be helpful in contexts where job success depends on personal interactions with people from diverse country and cultural backgrounds.  For example, work colleagues in a multicultural organisation or with customers, suppliers of other stakeholders based in different parts of the world.

What makes the Global Leadership Accelerator different?

The GLA measures 8 key qualities and 2 summary styles that are essential components of successful international leadership.  The importance of these qualities is recognised by research into global leadership. It is also supported by WorldWork’s own analysis of the data resulting from the over 16,000 executives who have completed the International Profiler.  Based on this analysis the GLA process encourages participants to reflect on their own experiences in the context of these key global leadership qualities.  By doing so they can learn to use existing strengths more extensively and develop new approaches to their diverse interactions.  Importantly, the GLA  process can be used by an individual on their own or with the support of a coach to help pull out development themes.

How does the Global Leadership Effectiveness product work?

The GLA is made up of a self-report questionnaire and a personal feedback report. The questionnaire is in the same format as that used in the IPI and TIP which provides a rich data set on which the personal feedback report is based.  The data for each of the dimensions is normed and the resulting scores, together with definitions of each of the dimensions, included in the report.  Also in the report are some coaching questions around the high and low scores. The respondent is encouraged to use these in order to reflect on their own experiences and identify development themes.  By way of illustration, a sample report can be downloaded from the link on this page.
