The Global Leader of the Future (GLOF) 360 Assessment is a leadership assessment designed for multinationals and leaders in a global business environment.


It was co-created by Marshall Goldsmith who is a world-renowned business educator and executive coach, and a leading expert in his field. He was voted by INC Magazine as the world’s number 1 executive coach, by Forbes as one of the world’s top 5 most respected executive coaches, and by Thinkers 50 as the world’s most influential leadership thinker.


The assessment is specifically designed for leaders in a globalizing business environment. The GLOF 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.


Organizations use the GLOF for leadership development to assure that leaders succeed in international roles.


The GLOF 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, sales, human resources and finance
  • Lead international functional or project teams
  • Have the potential and ambition to measurably grow their global leadership skills.
