Why become a Certified LEADS Coach?

As a Certifed LEADS Coach, you will be qualified to debrief the LEADS 360 Assessment.  The LEADS 360 Assessment is a popular tool used in health care settings across Canada.  The popularity of this tool is growing.  Appropriate debriefing of the LEADS 360 Assessment is a requirement for clients purchasing a LEADS 360 Assessment. LEADS Canada provides these options for debriefing:

  1. Individual Debrief (90 minutes): by Skype or telephone
  2. Group Debrief: half-day face to face presentation
  3. Individual Debrief (30 minutes), available only in conjunction with the Group Debrief: by Skype or telephone
  4. Written Organizational LEADS 360 Aggregate Report Interpretation

As a certified LEADS Coach, you will be listed, with your bio, on the LEADS Canada website.  LEADS Canada will assign the debriefings to the coaches and advise the individual client regarding their assigned coach.  The client will be provided with a link to the coach profiles page on the website so they can review your profile. LEADS Canada will contact you to confirm your availability for the work, provide you with coachee contact information and the organization’s preferred debriefing window (usually a two week window in which to complete the debriefings). A PDF of the subject’s LEADS 360 Assessment report will be sent to you upon completion of the assessment process.  Your role will be to coordinate a meeting time with the participant and to complete the debrief.  You will then submit your invoice to the LEADS Canada for payment within two weeks of completing the debrief.
