GILD ranked #1 by Leadership Excellence magazine

November 29, 2010

For the fifth consecutive year Linkage’s Global Institute for Leadership Development (GILD) has been ranked by Leadership Excellence magazine as a Top Leadership Development Program within a large consulting group for 2010-2011.  For over 25 years, Leadership Excellence has been a top publisher of best practices, thought provoking ideas, and trends from experienced consultants, trainers, and business leaders.

“It is always an honor and privilege to be recognized for the hard work that goes into developing a world-class immersion program for today’s global leaders”, said Phil Harkins, CEO of Linkage. “I am very proud of the Linkage team for earning this year’s rankings, and gracious for Leadership Excellence granting us their high rank of Top Leadership Development Program within a large consulting group for 2010-2011.”

This year’s rankings were a result of evaluation of over 1,000 leadership development organizations to determine the best leadership development programs and practices.  This year’s criteria for ranking fell within seven principles: vision/mission, involvement and participation, measurement and accountability, design, content, and curriculum, presenters, presentations, and delivery, take-home value, and outreach. 

Leadership Excellence honors companies for their efforts and encourages them to keep enhancing their leadership programs and practices.
