GILD is a competency-based leadership development experience enrolled in by senior leaders, leadership teams, and emerging leaders.

And GILD does not end when participants leave -- participants take advantage of the year-long post-program support curriculum following the on-site experience. GILD 2007 participants assessed the Return on Investment of the program at 9.2 out of 10. The foundation for GILD is Linkage's High Impact Leadership Model(TM), a leadership competency model that was co-developed by Linkage and Warren Bennis.
