Global Leadership 360 Assessment by Marshall Goldsmith

360 Assessment for Leaders in a Globalizing Business Environment

Leadership assessment designed by multinationals for multinationals

The Global Leadership 360 Assessment (GLA360) was co-created by Marshall Goldsmith.

The assessment is specifically designed for leaders in a globalizing business environment and is based on in-depth research involving CEOs of Fortune 100 companies, 18 global thought leaders and 300 international business executives at 200 organizations of 120 multinationals on 6 continents. The GLA360 measures the skills and competencies that today’s global leaders need to master and shows emerging leaders the areas they need to develop in order to succeed as effective leaders in a globalizing and competitive business environment.
