Learning to Seize Previously Unseen Opportunities

15/01/2016 05:51pm

At a time when innovation and initiative are at a premium, we need a new enlightened form of leadership that sees opportunities others don’t – can do what others won’t – and will keep pushing when prudence says quit.Leadership is about recognizing business opportunity gaps, identifying why they exist, the potential that lies within the gaps, and then knowing how to solve for them. We need more leaders that allow risk to become their best friend and who are willing to take personal accountability in how they wield the unique power and influence that comes with their role and responsibilities and the opportunity to transform the industry they serve.

About the Author

Glenn Llopis

Chairman and President, Glenn Llopis Group

Glenn Llopis (pronounced ‘yō-pēs) is the Chairman of the Glenn Llopis Group– a nationally recognized thought-leadership, human capital, and business strategy consulting firm. He is the best-selling author of the book, Earning Serendipity and contributing writer to Harvard Business ReviewForbesEntrepreneur Magazine and Huffington Post.

Glenn is best known as the “Opportunity Expert” because of his expertise in identifying and solving for business opportunity gaps that others don’t see. Through his work both independently and through the Glenn Llopis Group, he guides leaders and organizations to embrace a new type of thinking that helps them evolve and stay ahead of the rapid changes in the workplace and marketplace. Glenn shows those leaders and organizations how to break free from old ways of doing things that slow down growth and make it difficult to create distinct competitive advantages. This is what an innovation mentality solves for in the workplace and marketplace to enable evolution in any business and industry: driving growth through the Cultural Demographic Shift™, leadership identity (maximizing organizational and marketplace growth), strengthening corporate cultures and organizational teams, and identifying and closing opportunity gaps.

A UCLA graduate, Glenn fast-tracked at the Gallo Wine Company and Sunkist Juice Beverages where he became the youngest executive in the company’s 100-year history. Leading the successful turnaround of Sunkist’s juice beverage division opened the door for his next endeavor – at only 30 years old – as a senior executive at American Seafoods Company. The result was an increase in market share, new brand introductions, and a full-scale transformation of the company. Glenn then went on to form his own successful food business before transitioning into his current role as a consultant, executive coach, and keynote speaker to Fortune 500 companies. In 1997, Glenn founded the Center for Hispanic Leadership (CHL) Academy, which creates competitive advantage for Fortune 500 companies through their development and advancement of top Hispanic talent.

In addition to The Innovation Mentality, Glenn is the best-selling author of the book, Earning Serendipity (2009) and contributing writer to Forbes, Huffington Post, Entrepreneur, and The Harvard Business Review. In 2014, he was recognized as a top 20 influential writer at Forbes and a top 100 leadership speaker and business thinker by Inc. Magazine.

Glenn is a member of the Kellogg Innovation Network, serves on the advisory board of the Brittingham Social Enterprise Lab at the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California, and is a board member at Lion’s Heart, a teen volunteering and leadership non-profit organization.  He is also a mentor for Junior Achievement and a member of the exclusive Renaissance Weekend think-tank.  Glenn is frequently featured as a business leadership expert on CNN, Fox News, Bloomberg, Univision, ABC, NBC, and CBS. He lives in California with his family.
