LEAD2016 at Nashville, TN – Distinguished recipients of the Leadership Excellence Awards for 2016 were named for outstanding achievements in leadership development and programs in the areas of Education, Corporate, and Individuals at the LEAD2016 event being held at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, Tennessee. The prestigious Leadership Awards salute the world’s top leadership practitioners and programs and highlight their roles in developing their most important asset – their people.
For more than 33 years, Leadership Excellence, now a part of HR.com, has identified and recognized the top leadership organizations and their strategies and solutions in a yearly ranking by appropriate category. This year, the ranking process and award categories were streamlined and updated to better define the leadership efforts nominated.
TalentGuard CEO, Linda Ginac was recognized as a winner of the Top Corporate Leader Award – Over 35. “I am honored to be recognized as a winner of the Top Corporate Leader Award. I am very thankful for everyone who have supported, challenged, and elevated me on this journey,” said Ms. Ginac.
“Effective leadership development programs and activities are a must in today’s business. Without leadership, all other resources are ineffective, whether you are operating a non-profit, educational institution, government department, small business, or a large corporation. Programs and individuals recognized in the Leadership Excellence Awards program have made significant contributions developing leaders,” stated Debbie McGrath, CEO of HR.com.
This year’s award recipients were selected based on both an application or nomination process, reviewed by HR.com’s expert leadership panel, as well as feedback from the program’s participants. The voting was promoted by the nominees as well as through social media campaigns over the course of the nomination period.
