This article is in response to George Graen's critique of the Global Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness (GLOBE) research program appearing in this issue. The authors criticize Graen for not having fully read and comprehended the academic literature on the GLOBE methodology. The authors answer criticisms about bias in the sampling and questionnaires. Emphasis is placed on the creation of more than one hundred Country Co-investigators who represent their societies. They critique his Third Culture Bonding approach.
