The most effective leaders make five essential Commitments to themselves and their teams.

Are you equipping your leaders with the best practices, hands-on learning experiences, and knowledge they need to be truly effective?

Linkage’s Purposeful Leadership Digital Academy is a virtual learning experience designed to elevate a leader’s capabilities in the critical areas associated with effective leadership.

Leaders work through engaging and results-focused content at their own pace through online learning, either through Linkage’s Digital Platform or your organization’s own Learning Management System. Independent learning assignments include reading the latest articles, listening to podcasts, and watching videos—while also taking time for self-reflection and goal setting.

​The Purposeful Leadership Digital Academy also includes expert instruction during interactive webinars and group exercises. Each program features peer group work, focused on completing assignments together as a team, and is also a great opportunity to foster stronger networks across an organization.​

The Digital Academy is designed for organizations with multiple locations or that have a hard time getting leaders to step away for three consecutive days for in-person delivery.

Linkage also offers a combined in-person and digital learning experience for organizations looking to have the best of both worlds and meet the needs of their unique workforce.

An Innovative Approach

Linkage research shows that there are five Commitments Purposeful Leaders make to themselves, their teams and their organizations, and embedded within these Commitments are the key behaviors of inclusive leaders. These 5 Commitments are the basis for Linkage’s Purposeful Leadership Model™ and the key modules in the Purposeful Leadership Digital Academy.

Each module is carefully designed to address each Commitment in depth through experiential, hands-on exercises and practical case studies—both of which allow for immediate on-the-job application.

Module 1 Embracing Purposeful Leadership

Examine the five Commitments that Purposeful Leaders make to their teams and themselves, including the Commitments, practices and skills needed to become a truly Purposeful Leader. Read and interpret your own Purposeful Leadership 360° Assessment to identify areas of strength and opportunities for you as you continue your journey as a Purposeful Leader.

Module 2 Become Commitment

Discern your true leadership principles and purpose as a leader, clarify what motivates you (your Personal “Why”), and reflect on the dilemmas you’ve managed in the past and how they might be better informed by the Purposeful Leadership® Model.

Module 3 Inspire Commitment

Develop and reflect on both an aspirational and detailed version of your desired future state as a leader, and practice methods of expressing your vision in a way that captivates and motivates your teams.

Module 4 Engage Commitment – Coaching

Be purposeful in how you engage your team and colleagues by building human connections that enable business success. Use coaching methods and tools to encourage employees’ full participation by asking for their contribution, making them feel valuable, and actively listening.

Module 5 Engage Commitment – Inclusion

Describe why inclusion needs to be a business imperative for all organizations. Identify ways to increase engagement and move toward inclusion by understanding bias and its impacts.

Module 6 Innovate Commitment

Identify the leadership dilemmas inherent to building a culture of innovation, and begin to uncover opportunities for innovation through purposeful shifts in mindset, perspective, systems and processes.

Module 7 Achieve Commitment

Create context for high performance through personal leadership principles, and begin to refine your coaching style for greater individual and team motivation. Use achievement tools to evaluate your team and create a plan to support and encourage future success.

Module 8 Leadership Team Challenge

Apply all five Purposeful Leadership Commitments during a leadership team challenge.
