Six Strategies to Disrupt the Status Quo and Reinvent the Way We Work

The Innovation Mentality by Glenn Llopis reveals the alarming leadership identity crisis that has developed at companies of all sizes and across all industries nationwide that has created dysfunctional, tension-fueled workplaces and made it difficult to drive sustainable growth. These companies are solving for the wrong opportunities, widening productivity gaps, and unknowingly creating tension with and weakening the potential of their increasingly diverse and multigenerational workforce. They are dismantling the evolution of business growth as they simultaneously elevate the risk profile of the global economy.

The Innovation Mentality puts a stop to all that. Its six strategies compel leaders to have the wisdom and courage to develop a new mindset that breaks free from the templates of old and to renew and reinvent the ways we work. The book shows leaders how business today has become less about the business defining the individual and more about the individual defining the business and what kind of leadership that requires. It forces leaders to be more vulnerable and intimate with people in the workplace and marketplace who have lost trust in and respect for those businesses and brands and have grown frustrated with how they are mismanaging opportunities. It enables leaders to embrace the intellectual capital that lies within the workforce and see diversity and inclusion as a profit center to create change and the future America needs.

The Innovation Mentality is a transformational journey – an urgent call-to-action that will guide leaders and their organizations on how to immediately apply evolutionary thinking, strengthen their wisdom, achieve significance, embolden business models, and reinvent the workplace to create and sustain real competitive advantage in the marketplace.

Reclaim your identity by breaking free from the one-size-fits-all templates and have the wisdom and courage to help you and your business, brand, and employees evolve from the fear of change. It’s time to embrace The Innovation Mentality.

"I had an unexpected and powerful experience through GLLG's leadership program. It was powerful in that, in a relatively short time, the program unlocked a significant well of human potential within me. It was unexpected in that I had not realized the depth of the power and potential that I had within all along. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to take part in this life changing program. I am more self-aware and make better use of my "internal toolkit" today than I ever have before."
