This fall, we will welcome hundreds of leaders to Palm Desert, California for four days of immersive learning and leadership development. Linkage’s Global Institute for Leadership Development® (GILD) has a 22-year history of excellence, engaging the world’s leading CEOs, humanitarians, educators, and revolutionaries who shape our environment, nation and 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. 

This year, Linkage has the distinct pleasure of honoring one such leader who has dedicated his career–and arguably his life journey–to leading through purpose–by unlocking purpose in those he coaches. 

We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Marshall Goldsmith will serve as GILD’s first-ever “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 life-long 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.

Marshall has shaped the landscape of leadership through his decades-long commitment to leading through purposeHe is the author or editor of 35 books, which have sold over two million copies, been translated into 30 languages and become bestsellers in 12 countries. His two New York Times bestsellers are MOJO and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There.

He has served more than 150 CEOs. When we consider the number of lives impacted by those leaders, it is clear that Marshall’s impact stretches far and wide to leaders at all levels.

In addition, he is the only two-time winner of the Thinkers 50 Award for #1 Leadership Thinker in the World. He has also been ranked as the #1 Executive Coach in the World and a Top Ten Business Thinker for the past eight years.

We are excited to welcome Marshall back to the main stage at GILD, which will be held September 16-19, 2019 in Palm Desert, California.

I hope to see you there!
