The world is in desperate need of Great LEADership in all fields! Join our movement and help us to search for, identify, nominate, train and support great potential leaders as defined by our LEAD criteria.

Message from the Chairman
Shiv Vikram Khemka

The challenges that face us over the coming years are daunting. We will all need to call upon our greatest reserves of human leadership in order to confront these issues over the coming decades. We will have to choose and support those young leaders who have the potential to lead our world through these challenges; leaders who can help resolve conflict, reduce inequity, and spread tolerance and understanding; leaders who are more interested in contribution than in accumulation.

The Global Education & Leadership Foundation (tGELF) works towards preparing the next generation of leaders to be able to act as ethical global citizens in the face of daunting challenges that will be thrown open to them tomorrow. We are passionate about helping identify young leaders with strong values and then supporting them to develop to their full potential.








How do we define a Great LEADer?

LEADERSHIP: The natural ability to lead others to follow in one’s footsteps.

ETHICS: The adherence to basic global human values, rooted in compassion and empathy, beyond specific religious or cultural norms.

ALTRUISM: The deep-rooted connection to the one human family, beyond the sense of personal identification and ties to particular caste, creed or nationality

DECISIVE ACTION: The commitment and courage to act in the face of difficult choices that test one’s principles, values and personal self interest.

Put on this lens when you judge your leaders – we want to learn about the future Great LEADers that you know!

We need your help!

Think of those you know from school, college, family, work that you think embody LEAD values and nominate them now!
