Linkage Named to Training Industry Top 20 Leadership Training Companies List

March 18, 2019 Jennifer McCollum


For the 11th year in a row, Linkage has been named among the 2019 Top Training Companies in the leadership training sector by Training Industry.

This recognition is a testament to our long-standing commitment to delivering flexible, scalable and measurable leadership solutions that develop individual leaders and help transform their organizations.

At Linkage, we know that leaders aren’t born; they’re formed. And, we recognize the urgent need to build great leaders to meet the demands of businesses today and the changing needs of the future. The pace of change, complexity, innovation, and globalization requires bold rethinking around leadership effectiveness to drive business outcomes.

And sadly, we’re not progressing nearly fast enough.

A full 84% of organizations expect a shortfall of leaders in the next five years. As it relates to women and other under-represented populations, the leadership numbers aren’t improving despite overwhelming data that proves diverse companies are 70% more likely to capture new markets.

Selection to the annual Top 20 list is based on a variety of criteria, including thought leadership and influence on the leadership training industry; the breadth and quality of programs and audiences served; industry recognition and innovation; and strength of clients and geographic reach.

In my eight months as CEO at Linkage, I have been overwhelmed at our commitment and expertise established through 30 years of work with more than a million leaders. Our research continues to produce ground-breaking insights to inform our leadership solutions, and we are honored to be trusted by a strong client base of Fortune 100 companies, emerging businesses, non-profits and academia.

We’re proud to be recognized once again this year, and we look forward to bringing our evidence-based products and services to leaders worldwide in three critical leadership areas: Accelerating Purposeful Leadership, Advancing Women Leaders and Building Cultures of Inclusion.

Congratulations to the entire Linkage team! I’m excited for what’s ahead as we continue to impact leaders and organizations globally.
