How do I distinguish where I should send my women leaders: to the Global Institute for Leadership Development or to the Women in Leadership Institute?

June 26, 2012

We hear this question a lot from our clients, especially now since we re-tooled the Women in Leadership experience into an Institute format versus the previous Summit format.

As some of our readers know, Linkage provides a focused path for leadership development throughout the trajectory of a woman leader’s career, accelerating her advancement and giving her ample choice and direction on the essentials for what will enable her to succeed professionally. Linkage is also committed to partnering with HR, talent, and diversity professionals who are responsible for increasing the number of talented women in management and leadership positions.

With the Women in Leadership Institute, women leaders have three days together, enjoy the awareness that comes with a self-assessment, and are able to take advantage of the other foundational and exceptional elements of a Linkage Institute (great speakers, learning teams to process and make meaning of their learning and to network, and a Year of Learning for on-going development). Organizations will want to send women leaders who they believe are high-potential, who they wish to acknowledge and develop. For the price, the program is packed with value. It is also a place where leaders can return each year – enjoying a special journey as a Women in Leadership Institute alumnae. Alumnae will take the Accelerated Leadership Development Assessment each year to recognize how they are growing and changing. Organizations can and do use the Women in Leadership Institute as a foundational element to their advancement agendas for women leaders.

Any woman at any level of an organization who is showing up as a “talent with promise for the future” should become a member of the growing Women in Leadership Institute global community.

We recommend that women who attend our Global Institute for Leadership Development (GILD) are women who–like their male counterparts–have been identified as high-potential now. GILD remains Linkage’s flagship Institute–and the depth and intensity of learning and development that comes from the 360 assessment and expert coaching in particular but also the world-class line-up of speakers is second to none.

If you have any questions, in regard to where to send your high potential females this fall for leadership development please call 781-402-5555.
