About TotalLeader® Solutions Inc.

TotalLeader® Solutions Inc. provides performance solutions for the human side of business. This is accomplished through cloud-based tools which allow companies of all sizes to receive leading edge human development training they can use multiple times throughout the year, at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods. The main impetus for developing TotalLeader® Solutions system came from clients who had used other assessments. We kept hearing: “OK, I’ve assessed my people, now what do I do with the results?” Because it goes beyond just being an assessment, TotalLeader® Solutions is “way more than a score”.

In 2018 the founders of TotalLeader® Solutions were recognized as one of Canada’s top 30 innovators
by the Manning Innovation Awards.


TotalLeader® Solutions Inc. is the evolution of 25 plus years of creating, testing and implementing ideas that leaders from all sizes and types of organizations have used to achieve results they are proud of. The founder, Jonathan Creaghan, wanted to provide learning materials and methods that were easy to understand, simple to use, and as relevant at home as at work. These strict criteria meant that he discarded many ideas and accepted few.

When you receive your dashboard you can feel confident that TotalLeader® Solutions Inc. is providing field tested answers which have been painstakingly developed over many years and tens of thousands of hours of use by people who operate and work in businesses the likes of which you will find in your own towns and cities.
