Synopses & Reviews
To survive in today's competitive environment, an organization must be able to attract, retain, and develop the talented leaders that are so vital to a successful senior management team.
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 Inventory 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.
This 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 Facilitator's 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
- Participant Workbook
- CD-ROM with scoring software, reproducible forms, and presentations slides
Ideal for leaders in the higher ranks and multi-national organizations whose executives must excel at global assignments, this 360-degree instrument will help participants to spot their leadership behavior roadblocks and than take steps toward improvement.
"Deeply anchored in psychological wisdom and management experience, the GELI is refreshingly free of commercial gimmicks and professional dogma. Executives, scholars, and psychologists will all thank Manfred Kets de Vries for his intellectual generosity in sharing this priceless catalyst for self-renewal at all levels of leadership."
--Professor Jeffrey Sonnefeld, associate dean, Executive Programs, Yale School of Management
