Global Leadership

Developing leadership and enterprise thinking capabilities

Global Leadership

Developing Global Leadership competencies helps organizations manage disruptive change and align leaders to take the company into tomorrow.

 At Insight Experience, we help leaders develop the capabilities to drive meaningful change across large corporations. In our experience, cohesive Global Leadership is as contingent on peer connection and collaboration as it is on skill building. As a result, we often design these experiences as learning journeys over time; with multiple touch-points, participants develop a shared language, work toward joint goals, and develop a sense of camaraderie and trust that carries far into the future.  This is critical as participants work together to take on the challenges of an organization undergoing disruptive change.  At the same time, we work with participants to deepen their individual leadership skills and self awareness.

While rooted in our award winning concept of Balanced Leadership™, our Global Leadership approach can be experienced through multiple learning channels, both offsite and at work. This flexibility in learning can be combined with real world examples and even directly woven into the work day, enabling effective transfer of insights into ongoing actions aligned with the strategy of the business and its business objectives.

Observations from FORD Program Leaders and Facilitators

Results: Better leaders faster

The impact of any program is dependent on an organization's ability to utilize it and roll it out.

Since its redesign, the GEL program has had a significant impact on the organization's leadership. Part of that impact has been an extended reach to rising leaders, greater value per attendee, and the lasting impact of these programs on the cohorts as a whole.
