​Insights from coaching are often the key to helping a leader create impact—as long as that coach has the right tools at hand.

At Linkage, we provide the tools that empower coaches to uncover insights and build self-awareness with leaders. Among these tools is the Purposeful Leadership 360° Assessment, which is designed around the five core commitments Purposeful Leaders make to their stakeholders; Inspire, Engage, Innovate, Achieve and Become.

Linkage’s Purposeful Leadership 360° Assessment Certification puts you in the driver’s seat when it comes to administering this powerful, research-based tool with your coachees. This online certification is designed to equip you with knowledge of Linkage’s research on Purposeful Leaders and enables you to debrief the Purposeful Leadership 360° Assessment with leaders who turn to you for insights on how they can create lasting positive impact.

Coaches are certified for two years after completion of the certification, with re-certification training available from Linkage.

This program is designed for professional coaches with a background in executive or leadership coaching who have experience providing 360° results, which can include:

  • Talent development professionals seeking to empower their coachees with the foundational data needed to create substantive results
  • Talent development teams seeking to build internal proficiency with the Purposeful Leadership 360° Assessment and the Linkage process
  • Organizations looking to equip their in-house talent development professionals with the ability to debrief 360° assessments and leverage Linkage’s assessments on a broader scale

To be eligible to enroll, participants must have a strong understanding of coaching fundamentals and experience debriefing a 360° assessment.
