For this reason, many organizations leverage GILD as an ideal off-site meet- ing for their senior or high-potential leadership teams, boards of directors, or functional teams. These groups customize their GILD experience to drive action around specific organizational agendas such as change, strategic planning, team-building, cost reduction, and/or annual leadership forums. The combina- tion of leadership and team assessment tools, world-class faculty, expert facilita- tors, and executive coaches provides the ideal ingredients to generate dramatic results from your meeting.
