Build a Pipeline of
Diverse Leaders

In the next five years, 84% of organizations expect a shortfall of leaders.

And, with 10,000 baby boomers turning 65 each day, we’re heading toward a leadership crisis in the United States. Each year, accomplished leaders retire faster than we can fill or ready their replacements, resulting in a shortfall of leaders ready and equipped to take on the challenges of tomorrow.

It’s not enough for organizations to merely identify the talent—we must accelerate the readiness of these leaders, so they can rise to the increasingly complex challenges of today’s work environment.

Here’s the good news: Organizations have a new, diverse population of high-performing employees, and for the first time, most new working-age hires in the US are people of color.* That means a diverse pipeline of talentand future leaders who deserve development opportunities.

Organizations and teams thrive when they’re being led by the right person, at the right time. And in today’s ever-evolving and changing landscape, organizations must commit to accelerating the leadership readiness of diverse leaders to meet diverse needs.

Are you readying successors for key leadership positions fast enough?

Here at Linkage, we have developed a research-based Purposeful Leadership® and Advancing Women Leaders methodology to empower organizations to build a pipeline of leaders ready for the challenge.

Leadership Pipelines, Built Together

A leadership partner you can trust.

You don’t have to go it alone. Effective and impactful leadership development is a big undertaking, and our 30 years of experience in this field will help you develop and implement a strategy that has both an immediate and long-term impact.

Rising to the challenge of the leadership crisis, together.

Every single leading organization is facing a very real truth: There aren’t enough qualified, ready leaders to fill their leadership ranks. Rise to the challenge with a partner who has worked with more than 1 million leaders—and understands how to get results.

Go way beyond simple assessments to get to the real data.

There are many ways to assess your leaders, but very few diagnostic tools that serve to both empower the individual leader and inform an effective leadership pipeline development strategy. Linkage’s assessments are research-backed, diagnostic, and provide you access to the leading trends you need to anticipate (and act on!).

Partnering with Linkage isn’t about putting a list of nice-sounding words on a plaque and letting it get dusty on some wall. Instead, Accolade and Linkage approached this as giving action to ideas, embedding them in the everyday.
