Purposeful leaders are committed to five things to help their team develop into their fullest potential.
Linkage Inc. held their annual Global Institute for Leadership Development week-long summit in Palm Desert, California. Purposeful leadership was the theme for the 2018 summit. Their Purposeful Leadership model shows that those leaders who commit to leading purposefully have lasting impact on their teams and organizations.
Senior executives who attend the four day institute are immersed in a very unique week long leadership development. When executives attend GILD they are paired with a coach, get 360 degree leadership assessments, listen to relevant keynote speakers and team up with 10-12 of their peers to discuss the leadership topics. Mitch is attending as staff for the 11th year and is coaching executives for this summit already. Mitch’s executives are coming from China, Canada, and the USA.
Linkage builds on research from over 100,000 leaders to develop the model. The purposeful leadership model breaks down into 5 commitments.

What distinguishes impactful leaders from their less effective peers?
