Testimonial quotes

"My most important professional experience ever. Individuals in leadership positions hardly ever receive such significant feedback. Thanks to wonderful colleagues, experienced and generous faculty, and an amazing environment providing an absolutely safe and creative situation, we all could grow, assess and be humbled by the trust we were given. I have benefited enormously personally, and love sharing gained knowledge and ideas with my staff and beyond."
–GLI 2010 participant


"GLI is not just about learning, it is also about belonging. GLI has created a worldwide network that is of incomparable value."
–GLI 2009 participant


"I wasn't aware of the extent to which it was my responsibility, and within my power, to direct process by asking the right questions at the right time of the right people."
–GLI 2006 participant
