Why become a Certified LEADS Coach?

Certified LEADS Coaches are qualified to debrief the LEADS 360 Assessment.  The LEADS 360 Assessment is a popular tool used across Canada and its popularity is growing.  Appropriate debriefing of the LEADS 360 Assessment is a requirement for clients for purchase of LEADS 360 Assessments. LEADS Canada provides three options for debriefing:

      1. Individual Debrief (90 minutes): by video conferencing or telephone
      2. Group Debrief: face to face presentation 
      3. Individual Debrief (30 minutes), available only in conjunction with the Group Debrief: by video conference or telephone

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 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, send the PDF of the LEADS 360 report to the coachee prior to the debriefing, and to complete the debrief.  You will advise LEADS Canada as soon as the debriefing has been completed, then submit your invoice to LEADS Canada for payment within two weeks of completing the debrief.   

Certified LEADS Coaching rates are as follows:

Individual Debrief (90 minutes)


Individual Debrief (30 minutes)


LEADS Aggregate Report Interpretation

$1,500.00 - $2,500.00 (depending on number of levels in report)

      • The legal and ethical obligations of codes of ethics of the International Coach Federation and the Canadian College of Health Leaders;
