The Global Institute for Leadership Development Asia (GILD Asia)

Great leadership is Purposeful Leadership™: Transform your organization’s leadership capabilities by coming together at GILD.

Over the past 30 years, successful organizations have focused on developing leaders based on executive, cognitive and emotive competencies. It’s beyond question that to be effective, leaders continually need to strive towards strengthening their competencies. But what leaders today often forget is that while devoting time and effort to enhance competencies on the job is important, it is not sufficient.

So, if not competencies, what really distinguishes great leaders from merely good ones? Linkage’s years of research from over 100,000 leaders points us to the next watershed in leadership development. Our research has led us to believe that it’s the power of Purposeful Leadership – fulfilling leadership commitments – that enables the best leaders to maximize their own and their followers’ performance. Leaders do need to have the requisite competencies, but more importantly, they must be able to deliver on the commitments of inspiring others, engaging teams, innovating intentionally, achieving results, and essentially, becoming purposeful.

Linkage’s research substantiates that leaders who commit to leading purposefully impact their teams, organizations and communities in greater ways. Purposeful Leaders are able to identify a personal “WHY” – and they successfully translate this ideal into an organizational “WHAT FOR” – a broader vision and message for their teams.

Our objective is to help leaders unlock and define their leadership purpose and put it to use. We believe that this is the single most important task you can undertake as a leader today. Whether you are an emerging leader or a highly experienced C-level executive, it’s critical to remember that the more awareness and intention you and your organization can apply to how you inspire, engage, innovate and achieve, the greater the likelihood that business initiatives will be successful. Thus we invite you to join us at Linkage’s Global Institute for Leadership Development® (GILD) Asia and take this opportunity to reflect, provoke your thinking, learn from the best, renew yourself and start your journey in BECOMING a Purposeful Leader.
