Purposeful Leadership (PL) Academy


Our research shows that there are five commitments Purposeful Leaders make to themselves, their teams and their organizations. These five commitments are the basis for Linkage’s Purposeful Leadership Model and the key modules in the Purposeful Leadership Academy.
