    Abstract

    The current literature suggests that to succeed in global roles, one needs a global mindset, and in this study, we examine gender differences in global leadership selfefficacies in a random sample of 1,187 managers from 74 countries. Using the Global Mindset Inventory, we found that women demonstrated stronger global leadership profiles in regard to passion for diversity, intercultural empathy, and diplomacy. Conversely, men tended to show strong global leadership self-efficacies regarding global business savvy, cosmopolitan outlook, and interpersonal impact. We discuss the implications of our findings for shared leadership in global contexts and offer a series of suggestions regarding future directions for research.
