Linkage's Purposeful Leadership Assessment Instrumentâ„¢


The Purposeful Leadership Assessment Certification

True leaders engage others to achieve organizational objectives. Yet, many leaders have blind spots when it comes to their strengths and weaknesses.

At Linkage, we empower leaders to understand their behavior through research-based assessment instruments. Among these instruments? 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 Assessment Certification puts you in the driver’s seat when it comes to administering this powerful tool with your leaders and clients.
