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.
When it comes to our diverse, multigenerational workforce and customers, leaders have been solving for the wrong things far too long. The Innovation Mentality provides the wisdom to solve for the right things and guide companies of any size to seize one of the last remaining true bastions of growth opportunity.
Llopis knows first hand that what moves people s minds and hearts is what moves business. In a world of accelerating and volatile change, any company that ignores the lessons of this book does so at their own peril.
We need time-sensitive and people-sensitive leadership strategies to drive growth in more diverse workplaces and marketplaces. Llopis breakthrough methodology provides that and reminds us that leadership must have intimacy with both the people and the businesses that we lead and serve.
The Innovation Mentality captures exactly what is missing in business today: an investment in people, competency requirements, and an overall mindset that converges workforce and marketplace and places people at the center of our capital management and growth strategies.
A new set of skills and strategies are required to be successful in the Reinvented American economy. Glenn Llopis clearly maps out these strategies and teaches us how to operationalize them in a socially and ethically responsible manner. The Innovation Mentality is a must read for anyone looking to create true sustainable opportunity and growth.
The Innovation Mentality hits all the right notes when it comes to business growth. What makes Llopis six strategies different is they are profoundly human. Leaders must have the courage to seize the demographic shift and make innovative thinking a core competency. Diversity of thought is a strategic imperative to building the future.
Llopis has identified a winning strategy for 21st century leadership: be forward thinking, embrace diversity of thought, and commit to strategically aligning the needs of your people, consumers and business.
The Innovation Mentality stands out from the rest by its elegant simplicity to point out the obvious: We are no longer what we used to be. Enterprises that are focused on the past and the present will miss the future. Llopis knows where America s profitable future will be. He has lived it.
Attending the leadership program was one of the most transformational experiences in my career. Glenn provides a framework that not only allowed me to peel back layers and reveal the true me, it also gave me the opportunity to figure out how to use it to advance causes that were much more strategic and at a higher level than originally thought. This experience this is about bringing true evolutionary leadership to the business world -- that will drive success for both my company and for myself personally. If you want to reveal the true you, and drive differential results, this is the course for you!
I have had the opportunity to go to several trainings and workshops during my career, but none have impacted me more personally and professionally than this experience. I was challenged, pushed, yet supported during the session and I must say my comfort zone has been expanded. Sometimes you don’t know how much better you can be until someone sees greatness in you and is talented and skilled enough to pull it out of you. I am forever grateful for this experience!
Coming out of the leadership workshop with Glenn, I’m amazed at how my mindset has changed. I’ve built confidence in knowing who I am as a leader and influencer, what I bring to the table and how to communicate my strengths to others. Transformational experience.
Glenn’s framing of the content through narratives made the concepts easy to understand and apply. Interacting with peers from other companies and industries facilitated growth beyond any other seminar I’ve been to.
I heard nothing but great feedback from the participants on the value of your presentation and what you had to say. I truly appreciate you taking the time and listening to us after and attending dinner.
My team had the opportunity to meet with Chinanu Chi-Ukpai and we were talking about her leadership/career development. When we asked what her most memorable leadership experience was this past year she shared the GLG workshop experience in June with you. We look forward to continuing to work together again next year.
Glenn helped me uncover certain personal traits and characteristics that I was unaware I possessed. I left the training feeling empowered and revitalized--having learned how to apply and harness the immigrant perspective in advancing my career. I always knew that having an Innovation Mentality was a foundational characteristic for the success I have had in my career. However, l had no idea how much of an impact unleashing these behaviors in a correct and strategic way can have on one’s success! Can’t wait to implement my newly found knowledge and insight, and share it with my colleagues at New American Funding.
His experience in the corporate world and developing leadership development was a key component to the success of our leadership forum.
Glenn's voice is powerful and he delivers his Innovation Mentality message with such a dynamic presence. His deep sense of compassion and ability to inspire an entire audience with his enthusiasm and heart-felt stories reshaped how I think about business and life. He has reminded me about how powerful I can be if I choose to be.
Glenn's insights are spot on. And, his way of teaching through story-telling and analogies is inspiring and memorable. It allows the reader to take concepts of the mind and connect them to the heart - a very effective approach to having a lasting impact. Two thumbs up!
We are a huge fan of Glenn. He was inspiring, gracious and he challenged us to be successful – by just being who we are. Glenn is precisely who we needed for our event and MORE. As the keynote speaker at our annual conference recently, Glenn's energy united and ignited the spirit of collaboration within the organization in a way that I have not felt before within the business. He doesn't just share thoughts, he creates an experience; one which brings about a very personal change in many people at once; things are not the same after listening to Glenn -- there's definitely a SHIFT. He ushers in information that is timely and critical to our success in the business world.
The GLG leadership program was a great experience that gave me the time to think about the various influences that have shaped who I am. The small group case studies were a very valuable experience as you were able to learn from the strengths of others. The branding exercise at the end was a nice way to bring all the learning together.
The GLG leadership program was a refreshing and energetic, reinforcement of the importance of self-awareness and the power our values play in our purposeful pursuits. The content and interactive format taught me new ways to see opportunities I was previously not seeing. The personal branding exercise was powerful has I was able to have a point of view about myself from people I recently met. Incredible experience!
It’s been two weeks since the workshop and I STILL carry out the lessons front and center in my mind. Truly an invaluable experience. A game-changer for me.
I am pleased to have made the decision to participate in the GLG leadership program; the sessions provided me the opportunity to self-reflect and to expand the learned behaviors essential for leaders in the ever-changing industry. I am inspired to continue my unique journey as a leader, while embracing and preserving my own values. I appreciate the insights that led to re-discovery of my own personal strengths (and vulnerabilities) so I can best engage in continuous self-improvement!

Mr. Glenn Llopis gave an absolutely unforgettable, inspirational talk today. I think that Mr. Llopis made an extraordinary impact upon everyone in the room through his depiction of the enormity of potential that exists by partnering effectively with the Hispanic committee. Thank you again for the brilliance, insight and the ceaseless inspiration, Mr. Llopis delivered to our organization.
The leadership program was a transformational leadership experience. The workshop identified my blindspots and provided me with a method to begin a true leadership journey. The development of my personal brand was a great way for me to define my strengths and begin controlling my executive presence.
Glenn does a masterful job of articulating how we can go about taking accountability for our success and driving innovation in an environment where reinvention has become a critical issue in every aspect of our lives.
GLG"s workshop program differentiates itself in that it forced me to take an introspective look at myself and learn how I can succeed personally. I learned how to see how the glass is always half full. This is a very good program and I recommend it for anyone that needs to remember why they are successful and how to be even more successful.
In these difficult economic times it is nice to read a well written uplifting book to know that we can all help each other out and make the best of our futures together!
From reluctance to believer! Over the course of two days, this amazing Workshop allowed for me to see and now embrace the link between leadership characteristics and our cultural characteristics. Glenn is a master in allowing the participants to experience and utilize Circular Vision.
Your leadership workshop provided me the ability to recognize inherent leadership traits in myself and use them to help steer decisions and developmental paths for not only myself but for those around me. Outstanding experience! Highly recommend for leaders that are serious about advancing in their career!
Many thanks for the great leadership program you led at Rice University. The feedback from the three participants we sent has been excellent: amazing, eye-opening, enlightening, and far exceeded my expectations are some of the comments I’ve received from our employees. Thanks again for the outstanding program!
Thank you for the opportunity and tremendous experience. Your leadership program opened a different view on how to embrace a new journey for great success. I am already sharing this knowledge with members of my team!
Glenn Llopis' two day workshop was extremely enlightening. Engaging in guided discussion with other executives that had similar experiences, enhanced our understanding of the six characteristics of 21st Century Leadership as well as the Opportunity Mastery Skills. I would certainly recommend this leadership program others as it clarified for me how learning to be authentic can lead to improved results in both work and life.
Having Glenn at our Annual Franchisee Meeting empowered our team. He was absolutely fantastic! We are certain that our Franchisees learned a lot about how to become a more effective and profitable entrepreneur and leader. He was a wonderful experience that I will share and recommend to others.
This leadership program was absolutely amazing! I walked away with a tremendous sense of responsibility to do more for th community, and for the company I work for as a leader. The experience starting from the pre-work to the actual workshop tapped into potential that fueled my passion to a higher level around who I am and the person/leader I want to be. The reinforcement of the natural elements that are in me because of my culture sparked the energy I needed to not be afraid to be who I am and express my passion in any environment. I learned how to channel that energy, passion, and excitement, appropriately. I work every day to master those four skills taught in the class and so far have proven to be successful when applied. I have ventured into opportunities that have not been tapped into and have risked being that squeaky voice and so far have paid off with the relationships built professionally. I left that second day inspired to develop and create that entrepreneurial spirit in me and champion a change. I am sincerely grateful and proud that I work for a company that finds value in fostering those unique characteristics that my culture holds. It is definitely an investment that is still paying off. Another great thing is that the learning can continue past the workshop with the online Academy, which I am excited to complete.
With over 20 years of leadership experience it was not until I participated in your course that I began to understand that my culture has shaped, and continues to shape my leadership style. There are other leadership programs that focus on leveraging leadership strengths but this is the first time I understood where my strengths come from. Thank you for a truly great experience and for helping me shape my personal brand.

Before taking your leadership program, I had not appreciated the extent to which my heritage equipped me to excel in corporate America. This is not to say that I had not appreciated my culture - I have always been proud of my heritage. However, your program made clear how elements that I had taken for granted about myself; namely, the natural characteristics that defines 21st Century Leadership, truly are so well attuned to excellence in the corporate environment.
