Something special and brilliant happens when people bring their best thinking together, what we call their “Genius.” Every year, leaders and teams from around the world immerse themselves in this extraordinary process to discover, share, and maximize their Genius.
At our week-long conference, executives and senior leaders pinpoint the exact thinking behind their most successful outcomes - their unique Genius, their personal source code for producing remarkable accomplishments. They learn to idenfity and harness the power of their own and others’ Genius in a way that can be used over and over. Applying Genius to their greatest business challenges sets them up for immediate and long term benefits for years to come.
The research underpinning The Leveraging Genius Conference began with the establishment of a team of linguists who were charged with exploring the linguistic phenomenon that resulted in high performance of individuals and teams.
Today, Gap International employs a team of researchers with advanced degrees in linguistics, business, and a variety of other disciplines. The team publishes thought leadership pieces, conducts ongoing research programs and is always finding new ways to access and leverage Genius.
The History of Our Conferences
The Leveraging Genius Conference is an expression of a commitment to bring Genius to everyone in the world. We have found that everyone has Genius - the thinking that gives top performance. At the same time, no one knows what their Genius is before they go looking for it.
Our team of researchers and consultants wondered: What would happen if you had executives from all over the world come together to discover their Genius and leverage it to address their biggest challenges?
The first Leveraging Genius Conference was launched in 2003 in Geneva, Switzerland, with 40 global executives in attendance. Since then participation has grown to nearly 200 executives every year and is now held in Scottsdale, Arizona. As of 2014, people from over 150 companies have participated, many returning to the conference year after year.
Participants include CEOs and their teams, entrepreneurs, and leaders from a variety of industries. Our annual conference has become known as the place for business leaders to discover, share, and maximize Genius as the hidden competitive advantage for their business.
