Developing Excellence in Leadership Globally

Global Leadership Initiatives exists to develop excellence in leadership globally. We support this vision through our combined commitment to the “4-I” process of inquiry, intervention, impact, and iteration. This 4I approach to leadership development undergirds the books we write, the online University Certificate courses we develop, and the workshops and seminars we deliver. With this in mind, GLI leverages the best of leadership development theory and practice by utilizing the 4-I Model of Leadership Development as pictured in Diagram 1 below. We bring together a talent pool of highly experienced leadership development experts, researchers, and coaches to develop seminars, mentorship programs, and organizational interventions that will change individuals and positively impact organizational processes throughout the enterprise.
