The Global Leadership Program (GLP) is part of the consortium’s education mission and has a global curriculum with expert teachers and consultants operating across continents. The participants are also global leaders from various companies who come together at program locations in Los Angeles, Paris, Delhi and Shanghai.

This leadership program is specially designed for professionals who are being groomed for C-Suite level positions in their organizations. The primary dimensions of the GLP are leadership vision and strategy. The in-class portion of the GLP will consist of three modules of 5 to 6 days each. The curriculum will be organized around the value creation elements of global strategy, organization and leadership.

  • Understanding Global Market Dynamics & Geopolitical Trends – External Assessment > Strategic Analysis of organizations – Internal Assessment
  • Global Leadership Effectiveness – Individual Self-Assessment & Development Planning
  • Global Leadership Effectiveness – Multi-rater Assessment and Peer Coaching
  • Creating Value in a Global Environment – Strategy Planning Tools and Corporate Financial Analysis
  • Action Learning Project – Interviews and Data Analysis
  • Action Learning Project – Team Presentations
  • International Business Development
  • Intercultural Analysis
  • Historical, Cultural, and Business Perspectives on China
  • Global Leadership Effectiveness – Personal Transformation Workshop

A 3-4 month intersession between each week of the program will give program participants opportunity to apply lessons learned within their current organizations and return with new insights and questions for going deeper into the challenges of building and guiding global business operations.

Participants of the GLP will receive the following:

  • Strategy formulation tools including environmental assessment, competitive analysis, opportunity definition and organization design & development.
  • Organizational analysis tools including sociograms and actor strategy assessment, leadership assessment, feedback and coaching sessions designed to develop the capacity to assume different frames of reference and explore their nuances, build greater self-awareness and personal objectivity, and develop a fuller range of choices regarding development goals and objectives.
  • A holistic framework of learning that uses our cognitive, emotional, social, physical and spiritual dimensions as data sources in contextual analysis and understanding.
  • Exposure to a truly global network of business leaders and program faculty from a wide array of industries and backgrounds for reinforcing different frames of reference, comparing experiences, generating new insights and becoming long-term friends and colleagues.
  • Immersion in different cultures through sessions in three different continents. A core challenge in leading global businesses is the tension between different market realities, management practices, customer needs, cultural norms and business performance constructs. Understanding and integrating these diverse elements poses the core challenge for global leaders.

Effective global leadership requires a high level of knowledge about the global environment plus the ability to connect the dots to the value creation functions of an organization, its strategy, business model and operating structure, and one’s own cultural assumptions. The GLP focuses on each of these dimensions and the role of leadership in building and guiding a global corporation.

Research and experience indicate that most executives, even though they are highly competent and decisive in their “normal” environment, fundamentally freeze when faced with the uncertainties and unknowns of new global business situations.  Organizations can pay a massive price for these lapses.  Only learning can bridge this chasm.  Providing that learning bridge is the mission of the GLP.

The global marketplace demands conceptual pluralism and the ability to master context before designing a strategy.  Successful managers already possess many useful mental models, paradigms or maps, which represent their idea of their business, the world around them, and how the two interact.  They use these mental models to process information, make judgments and determine how best to get things done.

Effective global leaders must be able to shift their mental map, or frame of reference, to understand different contexts.  The GLP focuses on the activity of framing as a leadership competency.  A frame is a context-based way of looking at a given situation or event.  Frames become tools by which managers can master different business environments.  The truly effective manager and leader will need multiple frames, the skill to use each of them, and the wisdom to match frames to situations.  To cling to a single vantage point in global business invites catastrophe.  People who understand their own frames of reference, and who have come to rely on more than one perspective, are best equipped to understand and manage complex business situations in diverse global environments.

To be effective, global managers must first understand their own frames of reference and identify gaps and blind spots. Within the GLP, leadership assessment, feedback and coaching sessions are designed to develop the capacity to assume different frames of reference and explore their nuances, build greater self-awareness and personal objectivity, and develop a fuller range of choices regarding development goals and objectives.

“The GLP was one of the best learning experiences in my life.  It helped me to explore my personal purpose, which is guiding me in my professional life” – GLP Participant

The primary dimensions of the GLP are leadership vision and its partner, strategy, both of which have a dominant place within the program.  What flows from the emphasis on vision is the necessity of understanding contexts before formulating and deploying a strategy. With this in mind, the GLP focuses on expanding awareness and understanding of external contexts and building the personal capacity to purposefully lead in an increasingly complex and erratic global environment.

Within the GLP you will find an array of formats to include seminars, workshops, coaching, and immersion experiences along with a mix of tools, exercises, peer discussion groups, action learning projects, and individual reflection. An overview to the curriculum for the GLP are as follows:

Week One

  • Develop a frame for analyzing and mapping the global environment relevant to changing business models, markets, and strategies
  • Build foundations of inspired action and authentic leadership
  • Explore alternative and disruptive business models and leadership practices
  • Initiate work on a strategic business challenge as identified by each participant (continues through intersessions and each week of the program)

Week Two

  • Recalibrate the challenges of innovation and change to a customer centric model
  • Direct a strategic analysis of intra-organizational challenges
  • Gain insight through 360 assessment feedback and establish development plan
  • Explore intercultural models in relation to today’s cross-culturally charged reality

Week Three

  • Investigate aligning organizational, team, and individual values and culture
  • Explore mindfulness leadership; aligning body and mind in action

 

“Definitely the best program I have ever attended: mixed cultures, experiences, background, and personalities. There was a strong focus on personal development and being a part of a community” – GLP Participant
