Linkage Names Alan Mulally 2020 Global Institute for Leadership Development® “Legends in Leadership” Faculty Member

March 10, 2020 Kristen Howe

This fall, we will welcome hundreds of leaders to Palm Desert, California, for three days of immersive learning and leadership development. Linkage’s Global Institute for Leadership Development® (GILD) has a 23-year history of excellence, engaging the world’s leading CEOs, humanitarians, educators and revolutionaries who shape our environment, nation and the globe.

The leaders who make up the GILD legacy have one thing in common: They lead with a keen sense of purpose and seek to activate a deeper purpose in those around them.

Each year, Linkage has the distinct pleasure of honoring one such leader who has dedicated their career—and arguably their life journey—to leading through purpose by unlocking purpose in those they coach.

We are thrilled to announce that Alan Mulally will serve as GILD’s 2020 “Legends in Leadership” faculty member.

This faculty member position is awarded to a trailblazing and innovative leadership strategist who has demonstrated commitment in their career and life to the evolution and lifelong process of “becoming” a leader. He or she demonstrates a consistent pattern of living out the Five Commitments of Purposeful Leadership® and concentrates current efforts on helping other leaders step more fully into their potential.

Here’s why I am so excited to hear from Alan at GILD: Alan served as president and chief executive officer of the Ford Motor Company and as a member of Ford’s board of directors from September 2006–June 2014. He led Ford’s transformation into one of the world’s leading automobile companies and the #1 automobile brand in the United States. He guided Ford in working together on a compelling vision, comprehensive strategy and implementation of the One Ford plan to deliver profitable growth for all of the company’s stakeholders.

Throughout his career, Mulally has been recognized for his contributions, industry leadership, and service, including being named #3 on Fortune’s “World’s Greatest Leaders,” one of the 30 “World’s Best CEOs” by Barron’s magazine, one of “The World’s Most Influential People” by Time magazine, and “Chief Executive of the Year” by Chief Executive magazine.

Alan will share his insights with us on the main stage at GILD, which will be held October 5–7, 2020, in Palm Desert. He will be joined by exceptional keynote speakers, including Magic Johnson, Nando Parrado, Carla Harris, Molly Fletcher, and others. He will also be joined by 2019 “Legends in Leadership” faculty member Marshall Goldsmith.

I hope to see you there!
