The Global Executive Leadership Inventory

Great organizations are made of great leaders. And today, more than ever before, an organization's success hinges on the ability to attract, retain, and develop the talent that makes up their various leadership teams. Designed and authored by Manfred Kets de Vries - the Raoul de Vitry d'Avaucourt Chaired Professor of Leadership Development at INSEAD - The Global Executive Leadership Inventory (GELI) is an in-depth leadership development tool for coaching human resource and training professionals who want to invest in programs that improve individual, team, and organizational performance.


The GELI consists of 100 action-and-behavior-based questions that are designed to measure the participants' competency within twelve areas: Visioning, Empowering, Energizing, Designing and Aligning, Rewarding and Feedback, Team Building, Outside Orientation, Global Mindset, Tenacity, Emotional Intelligence, Life Balance, and Resilience to Stress.

GELI's comprehensive Facilitator's Guide provides instructions for administering an effective self-assessment as well as for obtaining 360-degree feedback from subordinates, colleagues, and superiors. Once the assessment is completed and scored, the Guide explains how to constructively discuss the feedback within executive teams or during one-on-one coaching sessions. This Facilitator's Package has everything you need to get the GELI started in your organization or with your client. This includes: GELI-Self, GELI-Observer, Participant Workbook and a CD-ROM with scoring software, reproducible forms, and presentation slides. The GELI can also be administered through a web-based platform.

Ideal for leaders in the higher ranks and multinational organizations whose executives must excel at global assignments, this 360-degree instrument will help participants to spot their leadership behavior roadblocks and then take steps toward improvement.

Pfeiffer, 2005
