Accelerating Purposeful Leadership®


​Develop and Engage Leaders at Your Organization to Unlock the Power of Purpose.

Global crises have put a strain on workers. This has highlighted the need for leaders who are able to adapt to challenging situations while engaging their team members and making them still feel that they belong.

The best leaders positively impact the people they lead, their organization’s culture and business results. Yet, less than 15% of all leaders positively impact all three areas.

Poor and ineffective leadership has real costs for organizations—higher turnover, lower productivity, higher costs and lower revenue.

At Linkage, we pride ourselves in offering clear, flexible, scalable and inclusive leadership development solutions to accelerate leadership readiness.

The best leaders are inclusive and lead with purpose—creating a welcoming environment that allows each individual to bring their best to work every day and align their efforts with the organization’s goals. Linkage’s Purposeful Leadership Model equips leaders to be more inclusive, more purposeful and ultimately more effective in how they lead.

This framework is based on decades of work with more than a million leaders—and all of our solutions are research-based, which means they are optimized to deliver measurable and lasting impact.

The Purposeful Leadership Model, which highlights the five Commitments leaders need to practice and achieve breakthrough results, serves as the foundation to Linkage’s Accelerating Purposeful Leadership solution.

Our research shows that companies that develop inclusive, purposeful leaders enjoy 2x stronger revenue growth, 4x profit growth and 9x employee engagement. To reach this goal, organizations must focus on the fundamental commitments of Purposeful Leadership, while addressing the organizational dynamics that influence a leader’s internal mindset and behavior.
