Like most coaching providers, Linkage coaches use a variety of means (stakeholder interviews, assessments, in-depth conversations with the coachee) to identify critical areas of growth. What’s different about Linkage coaching is our relentless focus on the development of each individual as a leader.

Drawing from the latest research on adult development, our coaches use unique data from our research-based 360˚ assessments (Purposeful Leadership Assessment and Advancing Women Leaders Assessment) to identify where each leader is on their journey of development. In addition, our methodology is metric-based. Utilizing an engagement-based metric and session-based metrics, we can track the progress of the leader and the engagement itself. Metrics can be customized to an individual organization.

We use a validated and researched method to help individuals move through a six-step process, thereby generating significant outcomes.

Many of our coaching clients leverage valuable data and insights from our 360˚ leadership development assessments in order to drive transformational change. Equip your leaders to drive broader impact across your organization by pairing coaching with one of our premier leadership development learning experiences.

Linkage has been specializing in leadership coaching for over 30 years, successfully guiding individuals, teams and Fortune 1000 organizations to drive behavior change in alignment with business objectives. 



Our coaching philosophy is grounded in the belief that any leader can achieve behavioral change that will positively impact both the individual and the organization. Our coaches range in expertise and background from former senior leaders in a wide variety of industries to consultants who have spent a lifetime exploring, researching, and applying what it takes to develop successful and purposeful leaders.

When you hire a Linkage coach you not only get their individual expertise, you also get a global leadership development company. With that comes access to the many tools and resources at their fingertips along with ongoing research and best-practice sharing across the coaches. Our coaches are not only experts in coaching and leadership development, but they are lifelong learners—staying up-to-date on the latest leadership, organizational development, and HR trends.

Purposeful Leadership

360° Assessment

The Purposeful Leadership Assessment is based on Linkage's Purposeful Leadership Model, which is designed around the five core commitments purposeful leaders make to their stakeholders: Inspire, Engage, Innovate, Achieve and Become. These commitments represent why we have leaders, the promise of what leaders deliver, and a framework for where to direct our attention as leaders. Each commitment is supported by specific practices and leadership skills. The assessment provides insight into a leader's overall and relative performance on each commitment, the practices that make up each commitment, and the related leadership skills.


Team Effectiveness Assessment™ (TEA)

Our Team Effectiveness Assessment™ (TEA), based on over 50 years of research, is one of the most comprehensive business-oriented team assessments available. Surveys that focus solely on team interactions and processes overlook key elements of team effectiveness. This assessment goes well beyond interpersonal relations; measuring organizational support, goal clarity, team diversity, learning, growth, and results. By contrasting your team results against the practice of high-performing business teams, the TEA helps you generate a commitment to higher performance.

The Advancing Women Organizational Assessment™ (AWA) 

Focus your organization's efforts in the areas that will be the most impactful when it comes to advancing women leaders. 


This Assessment has been researched, developed and validated based on the Dimensions for Growth, Linkage’s organizational model for advancing women leaders. The assessment targets the critical dimensions of focus for an organization to actively increase the number of women in leadership ranks and provides key metrics for demonstrating impact.


Personality Assessments

The best leaders are true to themselves. Often used for coaching or high-potential development, our complementary interviews, simulations, and personality indexes help leaders understand their natural tendencies and the implications they have on business results. Long-standing partnerships allow us to offer the following leading assessments:

  1. The Hogan Personality Inventory™ (HPI) – Helps gain insights into your natural leadership tendencies

  2. The Hogan Development Survey™ (HDS) – Helps mitigate derailing risks.

  3. The Motives, Values and Preferences Inventory™ (MVPI) – To analyze personal motivators and preferred culture.
