The Global Leadership Matrix (GLeaM) was launched at Columbia Business School in 2011 by Sheena Iyengar, S.T. Lee Professor of Business, as an initiative of The Jerome A. Chazen Institute of International Business. GLeaM’s mission is to advance and promote understanding of leadership in a global context. The central GLeaM initiative is its free-content website that delivers the latest insights on leadership and offers sophisticated tools for individuals to assess and improve aspects of their leadership ability. The beta version currently offers network assessment and time management tools, and in the coming months additional tools will be available. These tools will provide assessments and advice across an expanding matrix of leadership qualities so GLeaM members over time can develop a comprehensive leadership profile.
With each completed tool, GLeaM members receive custom feedback and advice on a particular aspect of their leadership profile — for example, a detailed view of their social network map and its characteristics — and they will be able to compare their results to those of other GLeaM users across the globe. The resulting anonymous data pools will allow professors to fill important gaps in academic and business research. The ensuing articles, white papers, case studies, and short videos will be posted on the GLeaM website. Learn more.
