A Message from our CEO:

Jennifer McCollum

At Linkage, we understand that strong leaders make strong organizations. We also know how critical it is for you and your leaders to be present and operating at the highest levels during challenging times.

For the next several months, we will continue to grapple with a quickly evolving global public health crisis. Viruses may be outside of our control, but our response to uncertainty—and our ability to maintain a healthy business and workforce—is a leadership imperative even more important in this environment.

We know you are experiencing significant disruption. Many businesses are already reporting a slowdown, or even a complete downturn. As communities take extra precautions, your employees are deeply impacted, with school closings, canceled events, concerns about travel, or fears about their own professional and economic futures. These anxieties are real, and they have a significant impact on each person’s ability to perform at their full potential.

In times like these, people look to strong leaders for direction, confidence and hope.

When challenges and threats are omnipresent, leaders must be at their best: They must be caring, calm, positive and future focused. But leaders are people too, and when we are bombarded with problems and obstacles, it is natural to become pessimistic. We certainly can’t ignore the difficult realities—but we also can’t let negativity become the default environment.

Our job as leaders is to rise above chaos and bring clarity to our teams. Our job is to be purposeful.

Organizations with Purposeful Leaders are more successful, with higher customer satisfaction and employee productivity. These leaders demonstrate the following behaviors:

  • They engage one another in a compassionate way.
  • They work with one another in truly collaborative ways.
  • They are emotionally present.
  • They build a culture of gratitude.

At Linkage, we continue to do everything we can to support your leaders in these difficult and ambiguous times. In our face-to-face workshops, digital deliveries, webinars, and coaching, we are using the coronavirus challenge as the context and backdrop for our work with leaders. And, we continue to expand our virtual and digital learning offerings for leaders, which include both collaborative and self-directed online learning opportunities. You can learn more at: www.linkageinc.com/VirtualLearning.

Here is an important truth to consider: Leadership is challenging—and most leaders, regardless of experience, are not nearly as effective as they could be. We are committed to changing the face of leadership, and we believe that all leaders are capable of performance far above what they are achieving today.

What could be more important in challenging times?

Please know that all of us at Linkage stand with you as you navigate this new reality, and we are eager to explore how we can support you as you continue to strengthen your talent and ready your leaders to emerge from a crisis even stronger.

I am always available to you. You can reach me at jmccollum@linkageinc.com or 1.781.402.5471.

My best, always,
Jennifer McCollum, CEO, Linkage
