Purposeful Leadership®

Develop leaders who drive 2x more revenue growth, 4x more profit growth and 9x more employee engagement.

The most effective leaders do things for a purpose and with a purpose.

Linkage’s Purposeful Leadership Academy is a three-day in-person learning experience consisting of 8 modules designed to elevate a leader’s capabilities in the critical areas associated with effective leadership.

Purposeful Leadership® is a lifelong journey filled with opportunities for reflection and growth. Participants in the Academy begin their journey to becoming more Purposeful Leaders which, over time, manifests itself through significant mindset and behavioral changes.

What’s Included

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 five Commitments—Inspire, Engage, Innovate, Achieve and Become—are the basis for Linkage’s Purposeful Leadership Model and the key modules in the Purposeful Leadership 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 Introduction to Purposeful Leadership

Examine the commitments that Purposeful Leaders make to their teams and themselves, including the commitments, practices and skills needed to become a truly Purposeful Leader.

Module 2 Purposeful Leadership Assessment

With expert guidance from a Linkage consultant, read and interpret the results of your Purposeful Leadership 360° Assessment. Begin to develop an Individual Growth Plan that calls upon your strengths and mitigates your challenges.

Module 3 Become

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 4 Inspire

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 5 Engage

Learn to build enduring human connections and inclusive leadership practices to foster engagement. Practice giving feedback, support, and guidance to achieve better performance.

Module 6 Innovate

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

Create context for high performance through personal leadership principles, and begin to refine your coaching style for greater individual and team motivation.

Module 8 Becoming a Purposeful Leader

Refine your holistic Individual Growth Plan with the knowledge you gained during the Purposeful Leadership Academy, and close the day with a team challenge grounded in the five Commitments of truly effective leaders.
