Are you ready to equip leaders at your organization to facilitate Linkage’s premier leadership academies?

Linkage’s Purposeful Leadership® (PL) and Advancing Women Leaders (AWL) Academies are in-person learning experiences designed to equip your leaders with today’s best practices for exceptional leadership.

Now you can scale implementation of the AWL and PL Academies to reach multiple audiences at your organization through Linkage’s Train-the-Trainer program.

This three- or five-day program prepares your human resources, talent development professionals and other business leaders to serve as on-site facilitators of the AWL or PL Academies—empowering you to make progressive leadership practices available to every leader at your organization in an efficient, effective delivery method.

Trainers are certified for three years from completion of the program, with recertification training available from Linkage. Each Train-the-Trainer program will equip and train up to eight participants.

Program Considerations

We highly recommend that facilitators have an opportunity to experience the full, three-day AWL or PL Academy as participants before they go through the Train-the-Trainer program. If participants have not experienced the Academy within the previous year, we offer a five-day program which condenses the experience in a learning environment.

Trainers who complete the certification are:

  • Certified in debriefing Linkage’s AWL or PL 360º Assessment
  • Certified in facilitating Linkage’s AWL or PL Academy
  • Subject matter experts in Linkage’s AWL or PL content and best practices

A Curriculum Designed to Drive Results

Equip leaders at your organization to facilitate Linkage’s Advancing Women Leaders or Purposeful Leadership Academy to scale your efforts to accelerate the development of all leaders at your organization. This Train-the-Trainer workshop has a curriculum designed to equip leaders with the insights and training they need to serve as leadership advancement advocates.

Virtual Prework Approximately 7 Hours

To maximize the in-person portion of the learning experience, participants will complete comprehensive prework that will ground them in the program and Linkage’s leadership frameworks.

This includes:

  • Learn Linkage’s 360° Assessment – Gain exposure to the assessment instrument and learn how to successfully demonstrate mastery of debriefing assessments through webinars, all on your own schedule. [Approximately 4 hours]
  • Introduction to Academy – Begin your educational journey through this introduction to Linkage’s PL or AWL Academy. Review all related facilitator materials and watch virtual, asynchronous sessions that include an overview of the program and each module. [Approximately 3 hours]

Hands-On, In-Person Program 3 or 5 Days

Participants will benefit from the expert guidance of Linkage facilitators. They will also have the opportunity to partner with members of their cohort to practice facilitation, or teach-backs of the Academy content in real time. Teach-backs will be in a group, co-facilitation format and will cover each module. On the final day of the program, each participant will be assigned a segment of the Academy and they will take turns facilitating. They will be evaluated by a Linkage instructor on accuracy and fluency of the material.
