The Leadership Challenge Framework supports some of our leadership development programmes.
The Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) for self-assessment and the 360-feedback tool enables leaders to set precise goals and follow a clear road map in becoming better leaders. Empirical evidence shows that applying the Five Practices consistently and frequently leads to measurable outcomes such as job satisfaction, employee commitment, and sales performance.
What is the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI)
Based upon an extensive global research carried out by Kouzes and Posner, the The Leadership Practices Inventory is a questionnaire that contains 30 behavioral statements—six for each of The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®. Leaders and individuals complete the LPI Self, rating themselves on the frequency with which they believe they engage in each of the 30 behaviours. Five to ten other people—typically selected by the leaders—complete the LPI Observer, indicating the frequency with which they think the leader engages in each behaviour. The Five Practice of Leadership are:
- Model the Way
- Inspire a Shared Vision
- Challenge the Process
- Enabling Others to Act
- Encourage the Heart
Why and When do we use this tool?
The Kouzes and Posner Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) is one of the most validated leadership approaches in the market. We like the measurable, learnable and teachable set of behaviours it introduces to help leaders to improve their leadership skills and behaviour.
How is the LPI applied?
We use the self-assessed LPI tool to anchor some of our leadership programmes. The self-assessed version provides an efficient means to start a conversation and an introduction to leadership. Whereas the 360-degree variant is normally reserved for more comprehensive programmes.
