One of the Most Transformational Experiences in My Career.

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 isn’t about being Hispanic, 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!

My Comfort Zone has been Expanded!

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!

Transformational experience.

Coming out of the CHL Academy 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.

My CHL experience was extremely positive.

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.

Hispanics tend to be very skeptical and I definitely was but after the presentation I was sold.

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.”

Thank you for all of your support and for making such an impact on our leaders.

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 Center for Hispanic Leadership workshop experience in June with you. We look forward to continuing to work together again next year.

I found the program to be transformational and powerful—like no other training.

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. Being Latino, I always knew that having an immigrant perspective 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.

I wanted to express my gratitude for Mr. Llopis’ willingness to support the inaugural Conexiones event. It was an honor to have such an esteemed and inspiring speaker address the audience. My hope is Conexiones is the beginning of the shift at Missile Systems and HOLA membership will begin to embrace their natural potential. Thank you, Mr. Llopis, for sharing your insight and wisdom regarding the connection between leadership and immigrant values. The event was truly moving and touched our hearts.

This was the most eye-opening leadership training experience in my career!

I have always been proud of my Hispanic heritage, of where I come from. However, before taking part in CHL’s highly interactive and innovative Hispanic Leadership Training I did not realize how embedded my heritage is in me and how it is part of my everyday work life. I now more clearly understand that the feeling and thought of ‘Ni de aquí ni de allá’ should not be a barrier to our leadership roles, on the contrary we should allow our Hispanic heritage to help guide and navigate how we evolve as leaders. This was the most eye-opening leadership training experience in my career!

Monica Rosales, PhDCity of Hope
Glenn was inspiring, gracious and he challenged us to be successful – by just being who we are.

Our HOLA chapter is 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 Hispanic community 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 as Hispanics in the business world.

A very valuable experience as you were able to learn from the strengths of others.

The CHL workshop 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.

For anyone that needs to remember why they are successful and how to be even more successful.

CHL’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.

Outstanding experience! Recommend for Hispanics that are serious about advancing in their career.

CHL’s 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. The workshop taught me that my natural ‘gut instinct’ was a product of the unique upbringing and viewpoint commonly found in the Hispanic culture. Outstanding experience! Highly recommend for Hispanics that are serious about advancing in their career!

Thank you for the opportunity and tremendous experience. The CHL Workshop 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!

Emilio GonzalezStore Manager, Walmart
The workshop served to make me aware of the key differences that Latinos bring to corporate America.

CHL’s two day workshop was extremely enlightening. This was the first time in my career that I was able to truly explore my leadership style and experiences amongst a group of fellow Latinos. Engaging in guided discussion with other Latinos that had similar experiences, enhanced our understanding of the six characteristics of Hispanic talent as well as the Opportunity Mastery Skills. The workshop served to make me aware of these key differences that Latinos bring to corporate America and how to best leverage them. I would certainly recommend the sessions to other Latino leaders as it clarified for me how learning to be authentic to the Latino culture can lead to improved results in both work and life.

It is definitely an investment that is still paying off.

This workshop was absolutely amazing! I walked away with a tremendous sense of responsibility to do more for the Latino community, and for the company I work for as a Hispanic 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 Latin 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.

My experience with CHL will refine my leadership abilities for years to come.

I had never thought that my Hispanic heritage would be so instrumental in my journey through corporate America. With over 20 years of leadership experience it was not until I participated in your course that I began to understand that my Hispanic 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. I have always been proud of my Heritage and my experience with CHL has shown me that a focused approach towards leveraging the strengths my heritage has bestowed upon me, will refine my leadership abilities for years to come. Thank you for a truly great experience and for helping me shape my personal brand.

The CHL methodology positions Hispanics for corporate success.

Before taking your course, I had not appreciated the extent to which my Hispanic 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 Hispanic heritage. However, your course made clear how elements that I had taken for granted about myself; namely, the natural characteristics that define Hispanic leadership, truly are so well attuned to excellence in the corporate environment. The CHL methodology positions Hispanics for corporate success by highlighting our cultural heritage as an asset. Given the current political, economic and social context in America, this has never been more timely.
