How to Get World Class Leadership Training for Free—for a Limited Time

If you regularly read my blog, you know I am a leadership development junkie. I can’t get enough input. Whether I am attending conferences, reading books, or listening to podcasts, I devour anything I believe will help me be a better leader.

G5 Leadership Website

The G5 Leadership Website

Chances are, this describes you as well. When I did my 2011 Reader Survey, I discovered that my readers have an enormous appetite for growing their leadership:

  • 73% read two or more books a month; 43% read three or more.
  • 75% attend one or more conferences a year; 50% attend two or more.
  • 72% of participated in a webinar in the last year.

If this describes you, you need to know about G5 Leadership.

G5 Leadership is one of the premier live, web training companies in the world. Earlier this year. referred to them as one of the top leadership training companies to watch in 2011.

They partner with New York Times bestselling authors such as Stanford Professor Bob Sutton, Fast Company founder Bill Taylor, CEO coach Marshall Goldsmith, and people-centric business expert Tim Sanders to name a few.

Think of G5 Leadership as a movie theater. The speakers and their topics are the movies. G5 is a venue where you can go and select which “movies” you want to watch based on which topics are most important to you. But unlike a movie theater, you never have to leave home.

G5 did some research on the economics of the leadership training industry. Get this: On a price-per-minute basis, you can get a degree from Harvard cheaper than you can attend most generic leadership training courses! That’s a bad return on investment if not an outright ripoff. G5 believes that the price of leadership training should look more like the price of a book and less like college tuition.

As a result, a membership to G5 costs just $129 per year. (I’ll tell you how to get it free in a moment.)

This gives you all-access to brilliant people, cool talks, great research, and real-world how-tos. It’s a great resource for anyone who wants to improve their overall leadership or zero in on specific skills like emotional intelligence, communication, performance and much more. You can attend the live seminars (via your computer) or watch them on-demand at a time that is convenient for you.

Now this is the exciting part: as a reader of my blog, you can get a year-long membership to G5 Leadership for free. That’s right: FREE. All you have to do is enter the promotion code g5 when you sign-up. Again, this is a $129 value.

G5’s next live keynote is with Bob Sutton, Stanford University Professor and bestselling author. It will be held on July 14th at 11am EST. His talk is entitled, “Good Boss, Bad Boss.” If you have read the book, you know what a terrific and relevant topic this.

With examples from such diverse workplaces as Pixar and Anchor Steam brewery, Sutton will reveal how the best bosses take diverse and specific steps to create effective and humane workplaces. He offers tips on taking control, getting and giving credit appropriately, taking responsibility, staying in tune with employees, and squelching your potential inner jerk.

I hope you will consider joining G5 Leadership. What have you got to lose?

  • Michael Lettner

    Thanks! The code worked for me! Do you know if they give you a certificate for attending the seminar? With my profession, we have to get so many “professional development hours” each year and this would be a great way if I have proof of attending the seminar. I’m looking forward to watching them!

    • Michael Hyatt

      Honestly, I am not sure.

  • Dawn Priebe

    I just wanted to say thank you for access to this resource at no charge.  Yesterday I was able to log on and gain access to G5.  I’m looking forward to utilizing the information provided as I continue down my career path.  I’ve made reading your blog one of the first things I do when I get in the office every day.

    I am thrilled to see the offer for G5 leadership for a year. Unfortunately, as a grad student, I don’t have an employer right now and subsequently can’t sign up. I thought about asking my husband to sign up for me, but that’s restricted by the limitations (and rightfully so). Maybe next time… but what a disappointment. I’m not sure I understand the need for employment, and wonder if a school email address would work also.

    Nevertheless, I appreciate the opportunities you offer, Michael, and thank you for your work in making these available.

    Got it, thanks a ton Michael! Will be sharing this with our exec team at Luis Palau.

    Their site being fireballed (Hyatted?) is a good reminder to keep our sites ready for the big crush that can happen. :)

  • Cynthia Leighton

    Leadership training?  No.  There’s leadership training being offered everywhere.  What i need is leadership mentoring.  Someone who will be more than a coach or a consultant, who will track with me and hold me accountable in all areas of my life and work. 

    • Michael Hyatt

      I hope you find a mentor. Another model you might think about is coaching. That’s the wrote I took with Building Champions. Although I had to pay for it, it was worth every penny—and more.

  • Brandon Weldy

    I have continued to get your emails but have fallen way behind in reading them! I was very excited about G5 and hoped the offer was still up, and it was! I have really felt the need to increase my leadership skills and I know that I can use all the help I can get!
