Testimonials

  • "One word comes to mind when describing
    my experience with CHL - 'Transformational.'"

    "The understanding that CHL's "cultural characteristics framework" is deeply rooted from within our family values that shape our work experiences provided me more clarity about myself than any other leadership program I have attended. It was as if someone illuminated the missing puzzle piece, as I instantly understood why I was good at certain leadership skills while I struggled with others. With the in-depth discussion of each characteristic and link to skills required to become a successful leader, I am now able to better articulate my strengths and personal brand as well as create a plan to gain greater proficiency in the areas where I previously struggled. I also understand with a sense of greater responsibility to bring the totality of my values, culture, experience, and skills to each situation with sincerity, honesty, and purpose -- because the value of what I contribute is also the value created in the diversity of thought."

  • "Gracias CHL, cuentan con mi apoyo y agradecimiento"

    "Desde que emigre a Estados Unidos hace siete años, busque diligentemente entidades o lideres que tengan las credenciales y habilidades suficientes para levantar un movimiento Hispano que sea sostenible e impactante. Cuando encontré el "Center for Hispanic Leadership", inmediatamente me percate que son altamente estratégicos y objetivos, exactamente lo que tanto había buscado.

    Ellos están tejiendo una red nacional de líderes Hispanos que trabajan incansablemente en construir una plataforma para alcanzar nuestra "Representatividad Equitativa"; tanto en el ámbito social como en el laboral.

    Con entusiasmo me he unido a ellos, porque su claridad de pensamiento y sus tácticas, ayudaran a que los Hispanos que estamos construyendo este increíble país, podamos dejarle un legado a nuestras futuras generaciones. Gracias CHL, cuentan con mi apoyo y agradecimiento."

  • "This was the most eye-opening
    leadership training experience in my career!"

    "I have always been proud of my Hispanic heritage, of where I come from. However, before taking part in CHL's highly interactive and innovative Hispanic Leadership Training I did not realize how embedded my heritage is in me and how it is part of my everyday work life. I now more clearly understand that the feeling and thought of ‘Ni de aquí ni de allá' should not be a barrier to our leadership roles, on the contrary we should allow our Hispanic heritage to help guide and navigate how we evolve as leaders. This was the most eye-opening leadership training experience in my career!"

  • "This workshop was absolutely amazing!"

    "This workshop was absolutely amazing! I walked away with a tremendous sense of responsibility to do more for the Latino community, and for the company I work for as a Hispanic leader. The experience starting from the pre-work to the actual workshop tapped into potential that fueled my passion to a higher level around who I am and the person/leader I want to be. The reinforcement of the natural elements that are in me because of my culture sparked the energy I needed to not be afraid to be who I am and express my Latin passion in any environment. I learned how to channel that energy, passion, and excitement, appropriately. I work every day to master those four skills taught in the class and so far have proven to be successful when applied. I have ventured into opportunities that have not been tapped into and have risked being that squeaky voice and so far have paid off with the relationships built professionally. I left that second day inspired to develop and create that entrepreneurial spirit in me and champion a change. I am sincerely grateful and proud that I work for a company that finds value in fostering those unique characteristics that my culture holds. It is definitely an investment that is still paying off. Another great thing is that the learning can continue past the workshop with the online Academy, which I am excited to complete."

    Laura Gonzalez | Verizon
  • "I would certainly recommend the sessions to other Latino leaders..."

    "CHL's two day workshop was extremely enlightening. This was the first time in my career that I was able to truly explore my leadership style and experiences amongst a group of fellow Latinos. Engaging in guided discussion with other Latinos that had similar experiences, enhanced our understanding of the six characteristics of Hispanic talent as well as the
    Opportunity Mastery Skills.

    The workshop served to make me aware of these key differences that Latinos bring to corporate America and how to best leverage them. I would certainly recommend the sessions to other Latino leaders as it clarified for me how learning to be authentic to the Latino culture can lead to improved results in both work and life."

  • "He ushers in information that is timely and critical to our success as Hispanics in the business world."

    "Our HOLA chapter is a huge fan of Glenn. He was inspiring, gracious and he challenged us to be successful – by just being who we are. Glenn is precisely who we needed for our event and MORE.

    As the keynote speaker at our annual conference recently, Glenn's energy united and ignited the spirit of collaboration within Hispanic community in a way that I have not felt before within the business. He doesn't just share thoughts, he creates an experience; one which brings about a very personal change in many people at once; things are not the same after listening to Glenn -- there's definitely a SHIFT. He ushers in information that is timely and critical to our success as Hispanics in the business world."

  • "The CHL methodology positions Hispanics
    for corporate success."

    "Before taking your course, I had not appreciated the extent to which my Hispanic heritage equipped me to excel in corporate America. This is not to say that I had not appreciated my culture - I have always been proud of my Hispanic heritage. However, your course made clear how elements that I had taken for granted about myself; namely, the natural characteristics that define Hispanic leadership, truly are so well attuned to excellence in the corporate environment. The CHL methodology positions Hispanics for corporate success by highlighting our cultural heritage as an asset. Given the current political, economic and social context in America, this has never been more timely."

CHL is an organization who believes in serving others with the hope of making a difference. They are an important voice and enabler that will transition the identity of Hispanics into the new mainstream."
