Transform your organization’s leadership capabilities by coming together at Linkage's Global Institute for Leadership Development®

Linkage’s Global Institute for Leadership Development® is a three-day immersive leadership development experience for high-potential leaders eager to explore new ways to optimize and accelerate their full leadership potential.

Based on Linkage’s Purposeful Leadership® Model, GILD introduces participants to the five purposeful leadership commitments — Engage, Achieve, Innovate, Inspire and Become — that when consistently applied on the job, translate into 2x more revenue growth, 4x more net profit and 9x more employee engagement.

Here’s what makes GILD truly transformational: You’ll hear inspirational keynote presentations that will bring these commitments to life, and then you’ll unpack these insights and discuss their application to your own role during small-group learning sessions.

Take a fundamental step toward becoming a Purposeful Leader and pave the way for a life-long journey of growth and self-discovery. Get a glimpse of last year’s event, check out key insights from last year’s main stage, or dive into our brochure to learn more.
