In 2015 GLLG was engaged by Walmart to co-produce a groundbreaking two-day summit – Leading for our Future. Walmart embraces diversity and inclusion as a growth strategy. Hence, the objective was to enable development, retention and market growth, and promote inclusion of talent. The Summit was held over two days, August 5 – 6, in Northwest Arkansas.


Content Overview

Leading for our Future

The theme for the 2015 Summit was Leading for our Future. Participants walked away from this event empowered and inspired to:

  • Proudly share their identity: Be proud of who you are. Our differences are our strengths.
  • Proudly own their development: Invest in yourself. Anything is possible.
  • Proudly bring others along: Invest in the development and advancement of others. Make dreams come true.
  • Proudly define our future: Improve the associate and customer experience. Define the future of Walmart.

Much of the content was shaped around Glenn’s books The Innovation Mentality and Earning Serendipity.

In 2016, as a follow up to the Inclusion Summit, Glenn delivered a keynote and facilitated a round table session to 600 people that was broadcast to an additional 600 people. The topic was “Strengthening Our Associates to Win with Customers.”

“Our evolution and growth as a business is founded on an unwavering commitment to putting people, customers, and associates at the center of what we do. The six strategies in The Innovation Mentality elevate and strengthen our core values by reinforcing the importance of creating environments where authenticity is encouraged and deeply valued.”
