Institutes & Summits

Accelerate Learning, Accelerate Success

Accelerate your leadership at one of our annual leadership development training Institutes or at our new Intensive on Leading Inclusively. More than 500,000 business leaders have attended our Institutes and Summits to date—these leaders have diverse functional responsibilities within their organizations and come from a variety of industries and sectors. Though the attendee profile widely varies, the attendees all have something in common: a proven propensity for leadership and a desire to accelerate their success and to boost their contributions to their organization.

We currently offer three annual leadership development training Institutes: The Global Institute for Leadership Development® (GILD) and the Women in Leadership Institute™ in North America, and the inaugural Global Institute for Leadership Development Asia in Singapore. Join us for any one of these events and be prepared to dive into an immersive leadership learning experience like no other.

Linkage’s Institutes provide unique, hands-on, high-engagement learning opportunities for leaders to understand and adopt new inclusive behaviors and ideas, network with peers, learn from a world-class faculty, and enhance their own capabilities.

Accelerate the growth of your high-potential leaders. Talk with a Linkage expert to learn how.


Prior to attending leadership development training, each participant completes an assessment to better determine his or her own strengths and opportunities—the results of the assessment(s) then shape the attendees’ individual paths at the Institute, including their small-group Learning Team placement. Depending on the Institute, individual coaching is either part of or available as part of the curriculum—and at the conclusion of the in-person experience, participants receive one full year’s access to online resources, including webinars, event presentation materials, and more.
