GMI for Government & Non-Profits

Global issues and challenges are not limited to the corporate sector. Non-profit organizations and governmental agencies face similar challenges.

The Global Mindset Inventory (GMI) is the premier assessment tool developed by Global Mindset Institute specifically for non-profits and governmental agencies to assist them in determining a global leader’s ability to be better prepared for the opportunities, risks and challenges that come from working with the cultures of the world. GMI has been modified from its corporate version to reflect the realities of working in a non-profit or government sector.

Pinpoint Global Influencers

Non-profit organizations and government agencies are increasingly facing global opportunities and challenges. They need officials, managers and leaders who can influence people and organizations from other cultural backgrounds. Having a strong Global Mindset profile is a proven predictor of success in global leadership positions.
