About Global Leadership Forum
The Global Leadership Forum (GLF) celebrates the myriad hues of leadership and people who embrace leadership as a virtue. It promotes, supports, and inspires the core idea of taking the world forward by redefining leadership that assures sustainability, human values, and ethics relevant to businesses, governments, sports, and culture. GLF is a platform for eminent leaders from different sections of society from around the world to deliberate on the role of leadership as the trustees of the future generation who can potentially leave behind a lasting legacy that we can be proud of.
With keynote addresses, meaningful discussions and thought-provoking conversations, the Global Leadership Forum 2017 brings the powerful leading voices from across the globe under one roof to churn out promising ways to rebuild the society with responsible leadership being the key catalyst. In its second edition, the conference will touch upon the four core pillars: Politics, Sports, Culture, and Business.
This multi-stakeholder summit will also feature breakaway sessions to enrich the participants’ overall knowledge and propose a substantial agenda for action. The summit will be held at the headquarters of The Art of Living in Bengaluru, India, on November 10 and 11.

Deep Dive: Three Concurrent Break-Away Sessions
Deep Dive I: REINVENTING THE SELF: THE ENERGY SCOREBOARD
The longevity of excellence in a career is a function of one’s ability to maximize their energy capabilities – physical, mental and emotional. For any leader, a big part of their own journey is their ability to reinvent themselves at strategic points in their life and career. How have leaders continually reinvented themselves?
Deep Dive II: ACTING ON CULTURE BEFORE IT EATS STRATEGY
A vision or a strategy is relatively easy to put up; but what really determines excellence is the persistence and the quality of execution. What kind of culture is conducive to making dreams translate into reality?
Deep Dive III: TRANSFORMATIONAL POWER OF MEDIA: SHAPING WORLD VIEWS
Media has immense power over the human mind. With the pervasive presence of technology, how has media played to its potential in cementing communities, fostering connections and leading to transformation?

Institutionalization of excellence is essential to leave a lasting legacy and it requires a high degree of commitment, dedication and persistence. How have leaders raised their own aspirations beyond personal achievements to focus their energy on creating a nurturing ecosystem spanning an entire field or industry for the next generation?
|04:00 PM to 05:00 PM||
Plenary: LEADERSHIP BEGINS IN THE MIND
Leadership is the ability to consciously act on the right thought or the right emotion in the crowd of thoughts and emotions jostling in the mind.
