Go! is an 8-week leadership development experience that features interactive instruction, a team project, and 2 weeks of international immersion. The following list presents the top 10 reasons for your company to participate in the Go! experience. Drum roll, please...
You'll recruit better. One-third of Millennials consider learning and development opportunities to be the most important factor when evaluating a prospective employer, and two-thirds believe that international experience is necessary to further their career. We designed Go! to be the ultimate global leadership development experience.
You'll reduce turnover. Requiring employees to sign a 1-year retention agreement will reduce turnover costs and can result in a return on investment (ROI) of over 50%.
You'll foster relationship-building. Employees will build relationships with one another and develop a network of professionals from other companies, industries, and countries.
You'll develop better leaders. Equip emerging leaders with the skills and experience to lead virtual and global teams through one-on-one coaching, interactive instruction, a team-based project for a company in Argentina, and a supportive alumni program.
You'll give back. Participants will spend a weekend building homes for impoverished Argentine families — which is important for the 60% of Millennials who choose their company because of its sense of purpose.
Top companies do it. Examples of companies that have international training or rotation programs include: Bain, Boston Consulting Group, General Electric, Google, McKinsey, Texas Instruments, and Prudential. Now you can, too.
It’s part-time. The Go! curriculum is designed for employees to continue working full-time throughout the entire experience — even while they are abroad. Similar to a part-time MBA program, Go! will not interfere with your employees day-to-day responsibilities, and your employees will be able to apply what they are learning on the job in real time.
It’s simple. We simplify international travel and logistics. Once your employees’ flights are booked, we take care of everything from transportation from the local airport to workspace and cell phone service.
It’s cost-effective. The cost of Go! is comparable to three-to-five-day domestic programs offered by organizations like Harvard Business School and the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL).
It’s an experience. Unlike other leadership development programs, Go! is an experience that we built from the ground up to align with Millennials’ personal and professional aspirations.
