Linkage's Purposeful Leadership Assessment Certification


Purposeful Leadership 360° Assessment Certification

True leaders are called to make a positive impact on others to achieve organizational objectives. To impact greatly, leaders need to be aware of their strengths and weaknesses, and take action according to that self-knowledge. Insights from coaching are often the key to helping a leader impact greatly—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 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 from completion of the certification, with recertification training available from Linkage.
