G5 Leadership – Leadership Development for Everyone
Live streaming of New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling authors and leadership professionals to your PC, iPad, or iPhone.
Leadership of the G5
Quick Pitch: An online boot camp focusing on high-performance job training.
G5 Leadership reinvents the traditional methodology to make work training more accessible and inexpensive. The unique web platform hosts 12 live seminars each year from the world’s top thinking leaders.
Traditional job training takes place in front of a Powerpoint display in a conference room or classroom. These off-site training sessions are sometimes expensive and time demanding. Furthermore, there is no assurance that the content will be of excellent quality.
Steven Smith and David Marcum, authors of Egonomics: What Makes Ego Our Greatest Asset and G5 Leadership creators, intended to modify the existing organizational model. Since the website’s inception in 2010, about 35,000 people have joined up for unlimited $9.99 monthly or $99 yearly memberships.
The startup provides live workshops led by thought leaders and pioneers in the sector. It’s an opportunity for everyone to hone skills like time management, engagement, and communication. Professionals have the ability to master new skills at their own speed. Following that, all live broadcasts are archived in a database.
The internet business bills itself as “a career gym.” The trainers are outstanding leaders who put users through rigorous testing. Workbooks, quizzes, and simple goal-setting plans are examples of shape-up tools.
David Allen, a New York Times bestselling author and time management specialist who specializes in “getting things done,” is among the G5 professors. Bill Taylor, co-founder of Fast Company magazine, is another regular who helps workers feel motivated. The award-winning magazine’s founding editor draws lessons from his own firm and exercises from his best-selling book, Mavericks at Work: Why the Most Original Minds in Business Win.
“Traditional job training may cost up to $30,000 per day,” says Stephanie Carter, G5’s public relations director. “Many people will never have such a chance. We intend to democratize training by distributing memberships to thousands of people.”

Scott Page is a common name (albeit not as common as Steven Smith), so you may be thinking if I am the Scott Page you know, used to know, or would like to know. Other Scott Pages have interesting and happy lives as well. Scott Page grew up on Gun Lake near Yankee Springs, Michigan, where he pumped gas and dipped ice cream cones at Page’s Resort. Scott Page used to have incredibly thick hair, so enormous that the photographer discovered a six-inch stick trapped in his ‘fro from recess during his fourth grade picture session.
This Scott Page went to Middleville-Thornapple Kellogg High School, where he played basketball, sang poorly in musicals, wrote for the school paper (only to be punished for an unfortunate cartoon about the school administration), and abolished the politically offensive “slave day,” only to have it reinstated a year later.
This Scott Page was a Michigan undergrad who studied in math and offered walking tours before being chosen MSA president. This Scott Page taught math at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, dressed up as a box of Junior Mints for Madison’s annual Halloween party, assisted in the unionization of teaching assistants, and failed to win an intramural basketball championship. This Scott Page taught statistics and decision theory at Kellogg Graduate School of Management, won an intramural basketball championship (albeit not in the open division), and appeared in late-night “you too can be a volunteer for Chicago public schools” advertisements. The Difference was written by Scott (Princeton University Press). Scott leads the Diversability G5 Leadership training on team cooperation and intellectual diversity.
Tim worked as YahooChief !’s Solutions Officer and then as their Leadership Coach. Tim developed and directed the Yahoo! ValueLab, an in-house “think tank” that provided futuristic perspective on technology and human behavior, prior to these prominent positions.

Love is the Killer App: How to Win Business and Influence was his debut book. Friends has been translated into a dozen languages and is a New York Times and worldwide business best book. The Likeability Factor, his follow-up book, explains the concept of emotional talent and the importance of creating an engaging experience. It served as the inspiration for a PBS special produced by prominent affiliate WQED.
His most recent book, Saving the World at Work, investigates the external interaction between a company, its employees, and society. It makes a compelling case for corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability initiatives to be prioritized at the top of a company’s strategic agenda. Executive Soundview rated the book one of the top 30 business books of 2008. His work has lately appeared in The New York Times, Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Fast Company. Tim attended Loyola Marymount University and the University of Arizona’s graduate school of communications. Tim leads an Emotional Intelligence session for G5 Leadership called Emotional Talent.

His work has been featured by CBS MarketWatch, The Dallas Morning News, The Arizona Republic, The Irish Times, BusinessWeek, U.S. News and World Report, and Portfolio.

“Potent, engaging de-toxifier.”
“I have more awareness of how the ego plays its various roles and how to better drive it.
G5 leadership trainingseems like an extremely potent, engaging and relevant de-toxifier the US workplace needs very badly! I believe that the ego, as habitually directed by self-centered fear and illusion/delusion, is the crux of the problem, and that ego, harnessed by methods like G5 and relying on good principles, is the key to optimal productivity and well being.
The session reminded me of a Bob Marley song where he sings (and not verbatim) “Mental slavery…. none but us can free ourselves from our own minds…” The toxicity I see and read about all seems to stem from believing so hard in old ideas and the feelings habitually generated coming from an original place of fear… ya know, old instincts that continue dis-serve so many of us… especially type A leaders/managers, and the people working for them and investing in them…
Really enjoyed you guys and your material. I sent an email with your links to 8 buddies Thanks again.”
“I loved learning how word choice impacts the success of collaboration and recognizing my default reaction. The practice was very helpful in learning the communication skills I think I’ve been missing as a leader of my team.
The videos were powerful and insightful. I especially loved the PBS Hearings video and what that taught me about staying composed. I also liked learning the concepts of how to get my team to debate and have difference of opinion, not just “nice” conversations.
Talking about our team as “equals” vs. “superior/subordinate” will give us a better chance to get people to participate more. Overall, excellent! (Although I wish we would have had a little more practice time).”
