TOPICS IN THIS NEWS UPDATENorth America
In one short week, the GLS community will gather together for the 2019 Global Leadership Summit at 500+ locations nationwide. Excitement is mounting. And all of us are asking, “What am I going to learn?”
We have seen it time and time again. The two days you invest in the GLS will have an outsized impact on your life. And a few minutes of preparation can pay big dividends as you get your heart and mind into the right posture for the experience.
So put the final touches on that work project. Place that “out of office” message on your email. And in the midst of your to-do list, try to take a little time to prepare yourself for what you are about to experience.
Here are the Top 10 things you can do to make the most of your 2019 Global Leadership Summit experience!

4. Rate yourself on your ability to handle rejection
Jia Jiang will help us understand the psychology of rejection and help us grow in this critical leadership skill.
