See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

Standard form for a polynomial has the terms descending by the power of the exponent. The standard form of this expression is:

$- {b}^{6} - 9 {b}^{2} + 10 b$

We can rewrite this as:

$- 1 {b}^{6} - 9 {b}^{2} + 10 b$

Therefore, the leading coefficient is: -1
