 Global Leaders Programme (GLP)

Global Leaders Programme

The Global Leaders Programme (GLP) is GIFT’s flagship leadership programme. It combines classroom and field-based learning in a two-week programme, conducted 4 – 6 times a year in countries across the Asia Pacific region.

Intense and engaging, the GLP provides professionals with a platform to build an acute awareness about the key drivers of global change shaping the business landscape and why the 21st century will be different. Action-based and participant-led, real-world field projects heighten participants' self-awareness and hone the practical skills required to manage diverse teams in unfamiliar situations. By challenging conventional wisdom and demonstrating the value of soft skills through real-world situations, the GLP introduces new paths to success in a complex world.
