There is no greater way for organizations and career professionals to ensure their future than through structured, purposeful continuous learning. GCLI’s curriculum and teaching methods are designed with that in mind. There is simply no better opportunity to advance individual and organizational success then GCLI!
Strategic planning isn’t an elaborate or academic exercise. It is a fundamental business requirement for organizations looking to maximize their potential for enduring success.
Utilizing real-world examples and a time-tested approach, GCLI participants will learn the fundamentals of effective strategic planning and how the process helps focus resources in the direction of a sustainable organizational growth.
Leading a sales team has never been easy. A transformational marketplace changes the landscape and creates the need for a revised outlook and strategy.

We’re holding GCLI classroom sessions at the Hilton Chicago O’Hare — at the center of the airport — to make it easy for you to return home in time to be in your office the next day, no matter where you’re coming from.
Each year, one session will take place at a printing facility. A comprehensive plant tour will be followed by a presentation by an executive of the host company. Participants will evaluate what they hear and see and will have the opportunity to ask questions and offer feedback and suggestions for improvement.
One session each year will be hosted by a technology supplier/manufacturer. Company executives will present an update on emerging production trends and will preview new technology applications and how they will enhance production choices and capabilities. A facilities tour will include time in their product demo center along with opportunities for hands-on demonstration and a Q & A session.
