Why the GLS?

 

If you’ve lost momentum in the past year, you’re not alone. Leadership is hard at the best of times—and these are far from the best of times. We’re probably in the most challenging days of our lifetime:

•  People need to find a way forward to help themselves and others

•  Families need to regroup and rediscover hope amidst so much loss

•  Churches need to rebuild community to get back on mission

•  Businesses need to re-engage employees to improve performance

•  Charities need to mobilise volunteers to meet increasing need

Everywhere we look, we see the need for great leadership.

That’s why we invite you to access the Global Leadership Summit, to help you gain clarity and move forward in this critical moment.


 

 

For more than 25 years, the GLS has delivered leadership insights with attendees reporting positive outcomes.*

The Unprepared Leader

ANTHONY DELANEY

If you feel unprepared to lead right now, you’re in good company. The Bible is full of stories of people who felt unprepared for God’s call on their lives at specific times and places.

FREDRIK HAREN

RICH WILKERSON JR
Co-Founder, VOUS Leadership Conference; Lead Pastor, VOUS Church; Author

Dr Francesca Gino

11 MAY | Rebel Talent

DR FRANCESCA GINO
Social & Behavioural Scientist; Professor at Harvard Business School; Author

In general, education and life teach us to conform; the longer you are in your field, the easier it becomes to conform to its norms.

This is unfortunate because conformity and mindless acceptance of rules stifles creativity. And, as strange as it might sound, the people who are doing the best work in their respective fields generally tend to be the rule breakers rather than followers of convention.

In this talk, Francesca Gino helps us all discover how to break the rules which hold us back. Walk away with three talents that the best rebels employ to create the future all of us desire.

Dr. Francesca Gino is a professor in the Negotiation, Organisations & Markets Unit at Harvard Business School recognised for her award-winning research and teaching on how to have more productive, creative and fulfilling lives.

She has been honoured as one of the world’s Top 40 Business Professors under 40 and one of the world’s 50 most influential management thinkers by Thinkers50.

BIANCA JUAREZ OLTHOFF
Pastor, The Father’s House; Founder & President, In The Name of Love; Best-Selling Author

When the opportunity to lead comes our way, we all respond differently. While some of us eagerly embrace the call to lead, others require a little convincing. In fact, many leaders feel unqualified, not enough, and concerned that they will “found out”.

Bianca Juarez Olthoff understands the power of words and is known to wield them wisely to help people navigate life, live significantly and connect in community.
