One thing we know: Your leadership matters…and it matters now more than ever.

We have seen it time and time again. The two days you invest in yourself at the GLS can have an outsized impact on your life when you apply what you learn. And a few minutes of preparation can pay big dividends. So, as you place that “out of office” message on your email and work through those final projects on your to-do list, be sure to make time to prepare yourself for what you are about to experience.


Listen in as some of our faculty share their words of advice as you prepare for the GLS20 Replay.

1. Take time to make sense of your experience thus far.

In this video, Marcus Buckingham shares how it is important to reflect on your year and make sense of your experience thus far.

Come to the Summit with a prepared mind. Process what is happening in your life, in your team and with your customers and followers. Learn how to achieve the mission you’ve set out to do at the Summit and come to the event with a prepared mind by making sense of your experiences thus far and bring in that clarity of mind to the event.


2. Bring an open mind.

In this video, Beth Comstock challenges you to open your mind up to those you might be surprised to learn from.

Ask yourself, what are two or three things I can take away that will challenge me? It might be lessons from people you think you might think you’re not going to learn from—but that’s where the learning happens. Be prepared for the unexpected.


3. Give yourself the permission to ignore everything else that is going on.

In this video, Rory Vaden, gives you permission to ignore everything else that is going on for these two days so that you can fully focus and absorb yourself in what is being share at the Summit.

You have an opportunity to access the most amazing world leaders, change makers and thought leaders over these two days. In order to fully benefit and pour into yourself and your team, give yourself permission to create space and invest in yourself—come and learn things to grow as a person and an organization.


4. Get excited.

In this video, watch Craig Groeschel share what he’s looking forward to most.

The Global Leadership Summit

GLN Staff Writer

The Global Leadership Summit (GLS) is a two-day infusion of actionable leadership insights and inspiration broadcast to hundreds of host sites across the United States every August. In the following months, the GLS is translated, contextualized and hosted by local leadership committees at hundreds of locations across Africa, Asia, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East. This global event convenes a world-class faculty who share their distinct perspectives and expertise, inspiring and equipping people around the world with practical leadership skills that can be applied within their context, wherever they have influence, and used to empower positive transformation where it’s needed most. Attracting an audience that represents various industries, including marketplace, non-profit, healthcare, education, government, ministry and corrections, the GLS has become a unique platform, unlike any other, bringing people together to not only empower better leadership within the organizations they represent, but in a growing number of cases around the world, this event also acts as a catalyst for organic local movements initiating systemic, city-wide change. What started as a single event back in 1990’s, the GLS has grown to attract tens of thousands of people today.
