H1 - 2023 Global Leadership Monitor


← H1 - 2023 | GLM


The Global Leadership Monitor (first launched in 2021) is an online survey of executives and non-executives that gathers the perspective of leaders on the impact of external trends on organizational health and their leadership implications.

Russell Reynolds Associates surveyed its global network of executives using an online/mobile survey from 28 February to 20 March of 2023. Data from previous Global Leadership Monitor surveys (deployed in February/March 2021, March 2022, and October 2022) are also referenced throughout this report.

Survey demographics

The 1,523 business leaders we surveyed in March 2023 represent: 46 countries in Africa, Asia, Americas, Europe, Middle East and Oceania. All data has been weighted by GDP to create a more representative share of business contribution from each market.




A variety of business sizes and types:



with annual revenues of $10 billion USD or higher



with 5,000 global employees or more



43% publicly traded, 21% private equity or venture-backed, and 28% private ownership

Not all percentages in charts add up to 100% as a result of rounding percentages and the decision in certain cases to exclude the display of certain sectors and “neither/nor,” “other,” “none of the above,” and “don’t know” responses.
