Accelerating the development of women leaders since 1997.
Changing the landscape of leadership. Changing lives.
If companies that financially perform best have the greatest numbers of women in leadership positions, why do women continue to lag behind in assuming leadership and board roles?
Projections show that at the current rate of advancement, women and men won’t be equally represented in leadership until 2085! The harsh reality is that the talent pipeline is leaking at all levels, and women just aren’t stepping into enough key roles that would allow them and their companies to realize their full potential. Why is that and what can we do, as a collective group, to help women leaders advance more quickly in the workplace?
Join us at Linkage’s Women in Leadership Institute™ in Phoenix, AZ, on November 12-15, 2018 to dig deeper into these questions and challenges, and to be a part of the thinking and potential solutions.
Visit our resource page for the latest thought leadership on the subject of women in leadership, both at an indvidual and organizational level, from Linkage and our faculty members.
The Executive Forum for REAL Change
Co-hosted in Phoenix with WIL, the Executive Forum for REAL Change is a unique offering designed for executives committed to creating and sustaining inclusive leadership practices. As a participant, you will focus on how to help your leaders model inclusive leadership, and on best practices for building a pipeline of women in your leadership ranks.
Expand Your Institute Experience with Extended Coaching Post WIL
Many organizations engage Linkage coaches after WIL to accelerate individual change and personal growth. When you combine the immersive Institute experience with Linkage’s signature coaching process, your leaders experience true transformation—and can turn inspiration and intentions into action. Our coaching options add rigor and focus to the development process—and give your leaders an objective counsel to help them successfully navigate the day-to-day challenges of leading.
The Women in Leadership Institute is designed to engage and inspire high-performing women leaders toward accelerating their leadership abilities. Past attendees span Fortune 1000 companies, nonprofits, and global government agencies and include women team members, managers, directors, presidents, CEOs, and every level in between.
Get Started Before You Begin
The Women in Leadership Institute sessions are filled with usable knowledge and insights that become even more valuable when leaders have a better understanding of their own strengths and opportunities. Each Institute participant will complete a 360° assessment prior to attending the Institute to gain better insights into her own strengths and key development areas. Use your assessment results to plan your time and areas of focus so that you can maximize results and push your own potential.
Extend Value, Fast-Track Success
Build on your experience at the Institute with optional one-on-one coaching sessions with one of Linkage’s expert coaches. You’ll discuss your individual Women in Leadership Assessment results, create an Individual Development Plan, track your progress over time, and receive powerful tools to start and maintain your focused leadership growth. Think of your coach as your personal guide to fast-tracked success and development.
Executive coaching sessions are available in 6-, 9-, or 12-month terms—contact us online or call +1.781.402.5555 for details.
Keynotes, Competencies, and Camaraderie
Through over 25 years of research, we’ve found that there are three core developmental areas that women leaders need to effectively drive results across all levels of an organization: leading authentically, leading others, and leading the future. This finding is at the core of our Women in Leadership Institute Model™, which provides the foundation for your Institute experience.
Explore 6 competencies from the model and learn from world-class leaders in exhilarating keynote sessions and competency-based workshops. You’ll delve into influencing change, building a brand, coaching, and leading strategically, to name just a few.
More than Standard Sessions
Beyond the intense curriculum, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to connect and network with your peers. Not to mention inspiring keynotes from leaders and world-renowned educators spanning business, arts, and academia.
You’ll also have the opportunity to reflect on your own experiences and gain expert insight during your daily small group Learning Team sessions with others who have similar roles, years of experience, and leadership responsibilities.
Keep It Going
During the Institute, you’ll undoubtedly gain new insights and new tools while expanding your own competencies and strengths. But following the Institute, you also gain access to the Linkage Leader for Life™ to continue your growth.
As an Institute participant, you’ll receive a full year of access to an online learning environment featuring webinars, broadcasts, and content designed to expand on the competencies addressed at the Institute. In addition, you can visit our resource page that features the latest thought leadership from Linkage and faculty members.
