Our Mission: Provoking leaders to think truthfully and live consciously.
The Global Leadership model seeks to create learning environments which maximize discussion. The seminar of 35-50 attendees are seated around tables in groups of 6 or 8 to promote interaction. Each American team member along with an interpreter act to facilitate discussion and understanding. As a subject is addressed by a seminar presenter engagement is encouraged with questions and problem solving exercises around each table. The attendee learns from the other by sharing ideas and conversation. Networking with others in this manner allows for a continuing dialogue after the seminar has ended.
Our mission statement indicates we are about “provoking leaders to think truthfully and live consciously”. How does the symposium tool accomplish that? The answer is in context of the learning environment we seek to create. Our heart is to equip business and community leaders to integrate their professional skills with moral and ethical practices. They are the same practices upon which our Founding Fathers established the Republic of the United States of America. It is a cultural-historical Christian view of life and work (worldview), not a religious statement. ‘Truth’ resonates with the hearer because we are wired for it; we are created in the image of the Creator. The Judeo-Christian manuscript, commonly known as the Bible, is not a description of Christianity; it is a description of reality. Christianity is the ‘shape’ of reality. Truthful living is a choice to live as consistently as one can according the ‘shape’ of reality. ‘Shape’ describes how things are made to work. There are many such ‘shapes’ and they are universal principles. For example, ‘treating people the way you want to be treated’. It works, because that’s how things are made to work. That’s why it resonates with us. Global Leadership presents eight such practices as embedded assumptions in all we do and teach.
