Global Mindset

When organizations want to do business and operate in different countries, they need business leaders with a new mindset. Thunderbird School of Global Management has identified this mindset as the Global Mindset®.

The Global Mindset®

The Global Mindset® is a set of individual characteristics that help global leaders better influence individuals, groups, organizations and systems unlike his or her own.

The Global Mindset

Why is the Global Mindset essential for Internationally Growing Organizations?

  • High Global Mindset® capitals can improve the results, creativity and trust-building capabilities of an organization.
    • The Global Mindset® skills are correlated with performance indicators like thought leadership, results leadership, people leadership and personal leadership.
  • We can measure the Global Mindset®.
    • We can use the Global Mindset Inventory® (GMI) to measure the Global Mindset® levels of an individual.
  • We can develop the Global Mindset®.
    • We engage many fun and confidence-awakening ways of developing the Global Mindset® that put the individual into the driver’s seat for his/her development.
