Each GLI applicant participates in a rigorous process to be admitted including sponsorship from a Gables officer. The first GLI class began in October of 2013 and contained a cross-functional representation of Gables’ corporate and on-site leaders. The GLI leadership program consists of four separate training sessions facilitated by renowned subject matter experts in their field. Each session of GLI focuses on a different attribute of becoming a leader.
