GLTP 2.0: exclusively for GLTP graduates!

Launching September 2021


The GLTP 2.0 was developed exclusively for successful graduates of our GLTP. It is a next level program that will allow GLTP graduates to continue on their leadership development journey, further increasing their ability to help strengthen and grow your business.


The curriculum continues to focus on the three pillars of high-performance leadership (Developing Emotional Intelligence, Building the ‘A’ Team, and Developing a Culture of Accountability and Getting Results) but goes significantly deeper on each.


The GLTP 2.0 builds on the concepts covered in the GLTP, and puts them into practice—using thought-provoking case studies, small break-out group discussions, and role-play exercises to help participants internalize the learning.


In addition to taking a deeper dive on leadership, Emotional Intelligence, accountability, fierce conversations and KPIs, the GLTP 2.0 curriculum also covers the key leadership skills of coaching, negotiation, innovation, and how to lead outstanding meetings.


GLTP 2.0 kicks off with a quick review of the key GLTP ‘golden nuggets’, before moving on to look at the importance and interconnectedness of culture and accountability. Questions for discussion include:

How do you bring your company’s core values, mission, and vision to life across an organization, department, or team? and How do you develop a culture of accountability and how will it affect your ability to execute on the strategies required to achieve your desired results? 


In addition to participating in a comprehensive Emotional Intelligence (EQ) case study discussion, participants will be challenged to move the needle on the EQ skills identified as areas for improvement in the results of their EQ assessments, which took place in the initial GLTP.


Session 3 focuses on the interrelationship between effective communication, the art of persuasion, and the ability to successfully lead others to deliver results. During the first half of the session, participants will deliver a mini presentation and receive personalized feedback from professional speaker George Torok. The second half of the session will focus on the development of effective negotiation skills. The topic will be introduced through a case study discussion, and then explored and applied through role-play.

Session 4 | INNOVATION

Session 4 is all about innovation. The necessity of creating and nurturing a healthy culture of innovation will be explored and discussed through the lens of a real-world case study. Participants will also study, discuss and apply the key principles developed by disruptive innovation guru Clay Christensen.


Participants will take a deeper dive on the importance of understanding the numbers (including KPIs, T12Ms, assets, liabilities, and equity) through the use of an OKR (objectives and key results) strategic framework. How are specific metrics tied to the achievement of specific goals? The importance of strategic planning and the use of Weekly Business Plan Reviews (BPRs) to review key metrics will also be discussed and explored.


Participants will review the theory behind Fierce Conversations, a topic included in the initial GLTP, and then put it into practice using role-play. With a real-world case study as the basis of the exercise and subsequent discussion, participants will learn how to master the difficult conversations necessary for effective leadership.


In the first half of this session, participants will apply self-awareness to build on the results of their Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) 360, and be given the option of completing an LPI 360 refresh. Action plans will be discussed and participants will be challenged to actively identify and improve behaviours that are contra to realizing their full leadership potential. Participants will also be expected to read The Extraordinary Power of Leader Humility by Marilyn Gist, in preparation for a discussion on servant leadership in the second half of this session.

Session 8 | COACHING

Using lessons from the masters and exploring ‘The Connectedness Model’, participants will learn the ‘Characteristics of a Supercoach’ and the top skills required to become an excellent coach to the members of their team. Emotional Intelligence will be revisited and the ability to develop the ‘relator’ skill will be discussed and explored.


In Session 9, participants will learn how to lead outstanding meetings. The learning framework and subsequent discussion will be based on ‘The 7 Imperatives of Great Team Meetings’ and the ‘The Top 10 Non-Negotiables’ for effective one-to-one meetings.


GLTP 2.0 concludes with a comprehensive leadership case study that brings together all the key topics and lessons learned over the course of the ten-month program.

The GLTP 2.0 includes 40 hours of participative leadership training over ten, monthly, four-hour peer group sessions. The group sessions are supported by one-hour, one-to-one mentoring sessions with a successful CEO every other month to ensure a clear understanding of the practical application of the major principles of each topic. Participants also have access to ongoing CEO Global Network webinars, roundtables and virtual speaker events.


The inaugural GLTP 2.0 will be delivered by four experienced GLTP Trainers and CEO Global Network Group Leaders:

Each has been a successful CEO and will share their own real-world experiences and stories in both the group and one-to-one sessions.
