2017 AGM Overview

GRLI’s 2017 annual All Gathering Momentum (AGM) meeting will be hosted by the Weatherhead School of Management, Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland, Ohio, USA) and will form part of the 4th Global Forum themed “Discovering Flourishing Enterprise: The Key to Great Performance” taking place 14-16 June 2017. The AGM will start with a Get Up To Speed (GUTS) session for GRLI partners and associates on 13th June 2017.

About the 4th Global Forum

The forum, supported by the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative, will take place in a multi-sensory environment influenced by the transformative power of art, music and nature to inspire creativity and authenticity. During this event, business leaders and entrepreneurs will have a new opportunity to transition from “doing less harm” in the world to actively contributing to flourishing. Lend your voice to the conversation that is changing the way we do business all around the world.
“Flourishing enterprise is about people being inspired every day and bringing their whole selves to work; it’s about innovation arising from everywhere; and it’s about realizing remarkable relationship value with stakeholders – customers, employees,  communities, and the biosphere – to create unprecedented,  enduring business advantage.”
– David Cooperrider
At the Fourth Global Forum, executives,  entrepreneurs, and change agents will discover, design,  and strategize around their own high priority initiatives.
Explore how flourishing enterprise leads to great performance,  increasing economic prosperity while contributing to a healthy environment and improving human wellbeing. See why it is becoming the new shared aspiration for executives, entrepreneurs, and change agents. Meet exemplars from around the globe.
Prototype practical initiatives using the whole system,  strength-based, anticipatory learning of Appreciative Inquiry to move business agendas forward with momentum and organizational buy-in.
Develop pragmatic work plans to further transform your organization into a flourishing enterprise. You will emerge from this experience with customized initiatives to improve your bottom-line results, inspire authenticity, creativity, and collaboration in your organization, and engage employees and partners in work that is meaningful and purpose-driven.
