Abstract: It is the interest of the researchers to find how the benchmarking of the future leaders is done in the Government-linked Companies GLCs. A mixed method approach has been selected as the research strategy to study the issues under investigation and the relationship between them. Six interviews with prominent experts are carried out to gather the items for the questionnaire. Then sets of constructed questionnaire are distributed to the managerial staff of Universiti Malaysia Perlis as a pilot study. To gather the data from GLCs, three Government-linked Investment Companies (GLICs) and fifteen GLCs have been identified as the samples. Then an interview with a prominent statesman is carried out, and a focus group discussion with the top management representatives are conducted to support the survey. The findings of the study indicate that the choice for future leadership dimensions are traits, behaviours, performance functions, competence, skills and background. These six leadership dimensions qualities are desired in GLCs as the future leaders are expected to use their best endeavours to prompt or reshape the organizations.
