About Glen

Cultural and context always matter whether you are a Fortune 500 company or a fifteen-year-old trying to graduate high school or a 5o-year-old trying to earn a fortune. To remain relevant in this global information age, we must be culturally competent. Glen has made it his mission to help organizations and individuals understand how to navigate the complex nature of culture. Glen works with organizations that want to improve productivity and profits, through innovative leadership techniques and building intercultural competence. He also works with individuals trying to make sense of the culture in which they live, so that they can live their IDEAL lives.

Glen’s expertise in understanding culture has taken him from to being a nerdy kid growing up in the suburbs of Houston, Texas to becoming an Air Force Officer in the United States Air Force, teaching middle school, to leading a national non-profit religious organization. Currently, Glen serves as the Chief, Operating Officer and primary event planner for MC USA.

As an Air Force Officer, Glen served in the Manpower and Organization (MO) division, formulating and implementing staffing policies. He advised senior leadership on human resource management and continuous improvement initiatives and activities. Glen has extensive experience promoting and fostering an ongoing improvement environment and staying up to date with modern business management practices. One of his strengths is assisting leaders in design and implementation of optimized organizational structures.

Glen believes that cultural competence also means understanding how different generations engage the world. He is also passionate about giving back to the community and helping young people develop the skills they need to survive and thrive in a dynamic world. His weekly, StepOut! Podcast is geared toward helping youth, young adults, and those that love them navigate our diverse culture and help them to define for themselves what success means. Each week Glen encourages his listeners to “Not only live their lives but to love the lives they live.”

Frequently Requested Topics

You "Lead" Me No Other Choice
We no longer live in a one size fits all workplace. Our values and work styles often reflect the generation in which we were raised. While Boomers, Gen X, and Millennials share the same workspace, they don’t always share the same viewpoints when it comes to how the actual work is carried out. Stop leading like it’s “Your way or the highway.” Leaders and managers need to understand that need for intercultural competence and communication applies to age differences as well. For instance, “more than people of other generations, Millennials tend to change jobs frequently. This turnover rate has particular significance for managers: As the saying goes, employees don’t quit their companies; they quit their bosses. To limit costly turnover—and help all employees succeed—managers need to understand people’s communication styles and interact with them accordingly.”
Building a Foundation for Success
How do you create a pathway towards success for the next generation? Being a teen is tough, and being a parent of a teen may be tougher. I don’t have all the answers, but I can share with you from being a parent of two teens and over 20 years of experience mentoring youth at all levels. I am still in touch with many of the “teens” now adults whom I mentored over the years. Parents and teens you can get through these years
Managing Cultural Transitions

Leaders must be aware of the informal and institutional factors that impact organizational cultural and the culture’s effect on organizational goals.
