Our Team

Based on our long-term experience of working in various institutions, including both scientific and in practice-based organisations, we consider ourselves to be competent partners for you. Global Mindset and Global Leadership provides state of the art methods. 


The Gmindset team of educators and business professionals teaches the skills required to become highly effective global citizens. To become a global citizen, a “Global Mindset” is required. Our customized teaching program and proprietary learning management system have over 110 competencies that address the most relevant “hard” and “soft” skills needed to be successful in the worldwide economy.

Our program brings together participants from around the world. Students and business professionals are taught critical international business knowledge, skills, and abilities.

Key topics in our curriculum include sustainability, culture, ethics, responsibility, integrity, diversity, equity, adaptability, agility, resilience, curiosity, and inclusion. Our 12-week Global Leadership Mindset Development Program (GLMDP) delivers state-of-the-art engagement on our virtual platform to participants around the world.

In our GLMDP platform, participants receive a customized learning journey, both on an individual and team level. In teams, participants interact with each other on various assignments. Team engagement and interaction come from across a wide spectrum of different cultures and countries. Our proprietary instructional platform provides a truly unique and rewarding transformational experience.

Having a Global Mindset is a critical competence needed to become a successful global business leader in the 21st Century. Our team of scholars is from all over the world. They come from different areas of specialization and global experience. Our faculty consists of scholars, practitioners, authors, trainers, coaches, subject matter experts, and consultants. Our academic team provides a unique and diverse mix of worldwide experiences and viewpoints.

Our international participants come from many countries. Global Leadership Mindset Development Program (GLMDP) provides a highly interactive learning platform to pursue our vision of “One World”. Our mission is to provide education for everyone and everywhere. Our program has been designed to “Connect the World”.

We embrace and foster respect, understanding, and appreciation for different cultures. We believe in hard work and commitment and that everybody with an open, growth mindset can be trained to develop a Global Mindset. Intrinsic motivation, curiosity, and openness are drivers that we develop in our program. Students and business professionals alike are our program’s target group. Learning comes from individual effort and from working in a peer group, which is very relevant and effective in the global business world.

I have attached two flyers: one for the upcoming international business students’ program and one from our Executives’ program, which is just ending. One part of our program deals with environmental, social, and governance (ESGs), and the other with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) from experts in the field.
We not only want our participants to be good listeners; we want them to understand who they are and how they can benefit from acquiring a Global Mindset. What drives them, what behaviors do they have, and how does culture affect their communication and leadership style? How to build trust in a multicultural team, how to negotiate across borders, and many more skills. At every session, we discuss, reflect upon, and give feedback on key topics to enable all our participants to pursue roles as future “One World” global leaders.


Since the specific module I had in 2009 at the University of California on aspects essential to a global executive, we had found nothing as structured and dense as content and knowledge as Professor Jörg Hruby's platform and guidance - while operating in countries like Germany, United States, the Netherlands, Costa Rica, Spain, Colombia, and Brazil. it was amazing to find technical and practical foundations of each culture during the course exhibitions. I recommend the course to any executive who understands that their area of expertise goes beyond the known neighborhood. It's a long journey that can be difficult, but Dr. Hruby has the map, and he can help.

Accessed the platform during the course Cultivating a Global Mindset with Dr. Jörg Hruby. The tool was very useful to support all the conversations that we had during the classes and also to provide a self-evaluation which was essential, since the development of a global mindset starts firstly on the individual level. I highly recommend Gmindset and also Dr. Jörg Hruby classes.

I had the opportunity to use the learning platform while attending Dr. Jörg Hruby's Global Mindset course, which is a great tool to assess your competence gaps to succeed as a global leader. The program highlight the challenges when dealing with cross cultural matters, in both leadership and business practices, providing tools and expertise in how to manage it with a global perspective. I definitely recommend Dr. Jörg Hruby's Global Leadership courses, for anyone pursuing an international career.

Concentrate in a friendly environment all learning resources that can be used to study Global Mindset topics. There are many content that this tool provides to students, executives and people who are interested in the topic. As a former global company executive and with a current client portfolio abroad I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a Global Mindset learning resource that want to track the development.

We live in a time when it is increasingly common to develop projects involving different cultures. The dynamics of processes, the need for quick responses and the urgency of results lead large corporations to share teams and objectives. The transition of executives between countries with their cultural differences is also increasingly present. The platform and the guidance of Professor Jörg Hruby are of great value at this time where understanding cultural differences and the need to create values across cultures is so important. The arguments presented are very well structured and really help in the development of the works. I found on the platform and in the course fundamental knowledge that helped a lot to understand and solve intercultural challenges. I strongly recommend the content of the platform and the courses of Professor Jörg Hruby.
