Practical Knowledge & Real-World Insight

Top executives face a shrinking pool of appropriate mentors as they ascend through the ranks of healthcare and life sciences organizations. Finding individuals within their companies or professional networks from whom they can get fresh and relevant perspective, valuable second opinions, and “been there, done, that” insight becomes far more difficult.

GLG Institute’s (GLGi) mentorship model is an extraordinary opportunity to connect with more than 200 elite leaders who can share their extensive knowledge and insight. Each engagement is custom and confidential, intended to benefit both the member and their organization by:

Improving commercial performance

Accelerating readiness for new roles and responsibilities

Expanding personal and professional networks

Improving ability to make tough decisions

Avoiding costly missteps

Improving executive retention

What We Do

GLG Institute offers a holistic leadership development approach by blending personalized 1:1 mentorship with peer roundtables and networking events.

One-on-One Meetings

Advisors provide a sounding board, reflective discussion, and actionable insights in confidential meetings that fit seamlessly into members’ busy schedules.


Members gain important insight from expert Advisors while building peer connections in a small, interactive group setting.

Summits & Networking Events

Members and Advisors convene for one or two days of highly interactive, off-the-record discussions of top industry and leadership issues, fostering connections and inspiring action.

Elevate Executive Learning & Development Offerings

HR and talent leaders turn to GLGi to create programs that support the unique needs of their most senior leaders. Our model can accelerate growth and development while removing the costly challenges associated with developing and maintaining in-house mentorship programs. For organizations with existing programs, GLGi can seamlessly build on and enhance internal initiatives.

There’s no substitute for mentorship from people that have been around, that have had both successes and failures, and have seen what works and what doesn’t. GLG Institute creates a great environment for exactly that kind of learning.

Jeff Kindler, Co-Founder and Chairman, GLG Institute
CEO, Centrexion Therapeutics and Former Chairman & CEO, Pfizer

GLG Institute has helped me develop more in a year and a half than anything else in years of leadership training.

Blandine Lacroix, Corporate Vice President, BioPharm & Strategy, Novo Nordisk

Since we began partnering several years ago, nearly two dozen of our very best talents have spent a year or more working with GLGi’s highly skilled set of Advisors. The broad variety of professionals with deep and relevant experience has unquestionably added to our talents’ knowledge and expertise. Our executives have consistently told us the offering has served as a strong signal of our commitment to their development and strengthened their own engagement and company commitment.
