“I have really enjoyed partnering with Linkage because I like the focus on leadership development. It’s not just about transferring tools, but it’s about how do we transform you where you are and where you are aspired to be as a leader. I also like the fact that they bring in a lot of different voices, because there is no one way to be a leader…When I walk away from this week, I’ll at least have the components and ingredients to now put it back together with who I am and figure out how I own this and then deploy some of these learnings. “

Every day will likely leave you thinking, “…Wow, that was an intense day of learning and personal reflection on what I need to do to become an even better leader!” Each day, you’ll be challenged to think differently by world-class thought leaders, and in your one-on-one coaching sessions and learning team discussions. You’ll receive feedback, including insight from your coach on how your colleagues perceive you as a leader. You’ll network with other global leaders and share your perspectives during your small-group “Learning Team” sessions.
There are many things that set GILD apart from typical leadership conferences—here are a few of the key differences:
Learning teams are facilitator-led small groups (15-20 participants) that meet for 1.5 hours each day. During these sessions, participants discuss how to apply what they are learning from the faculty into their daily work lives to become better leaders. Linkage organizes each learning team so that people with similar years of management experience, similar scope of responsibility, similar learning style, and similar leadership challenges are grouped together—this pre-planning helps participants get the most out of the small groups and allows the development of lasting peer relationships.
Some organizations send a “cohort” of high-potential leaders or senior leaders and choose to keep them together through the GILD experience (called an “intact team”), while others elect to have participants experience GILD as individual leaders, dispersed among various learning teams. Both experiences offer valuable benefits. Ultimately, this is a choice you and your organization will make.
Linkage’s Leadership Assessment Instrument™ (LAI) is an 80-item online assessment. To complete the 360º component, you will nominate raters you would like to provide feedback (your manager, your direct reports, your peers, and others you believe would add valuable perspectives). The assessment takes about 20-30 minutes per individual to complete. Once you arrive at GILD Asia, you and your leadership coach will receive your confidential assessment results—no one else receives the results unless you decide to share them. The assessment provides valuable insight and awareness for you to know your leadership strengths and development areas.
Prior to GILD Asia, you will have an opportunity to select your coach from a diverse pool of leadership coaches, based on biographical information shared with you before you arrive. Your selected coach will introduce him- or herself before the Institute to schedule a one-hour, on-site leadership coaching session during GILD Asia. In this session, your coach will help you to understand your assessment results, and to jointly craft your Individual Development Plan (IDP). After GILD Asia, you will virtually reconnect with your coach two more times, to discuss the implementation of your IDP, to monitor its progress, and to identify and/or modify next steps based on your current status. Additional leadership coaching, beyond the three sessions, is also an available option.
Though each session and GILD Asia faculty member varies, each will challenge you to think, behave, and motivate others differently with tools related to their particular area of expertise and competency.
The dress code is business casual. We suggest you bring comfortable shoes and dress in layers as each day’s program will move between rooms and the temperatures are likely to vary.
