Self-discovery and self-awareness are essential to developing our ability to lead. We know that great leadership creates great workplaces, and, in turn, great workplaces create great marketplace results. The Leadership Challenge is designed to help good people become great leaders.
A core component in the Leadership Challenge program includes personal reflection and analysis of our own behaviors as leaders. Equally as valuable is insight and feedback from those around us who know us well, who have experience of us in our role as a leader, and who are committed in their support of our personal development to provide honest input into the behaviors we exhibit to others. Combined, these essential perspectives provide invaluable insight into how we view ourselves as a leader, how others view us, and what actions we can take to improve our effectiveness.
As a 360-degree assessment, the Leadership Practices Inventory® (LPI) captures a more complete portrait of leaders, packaging it into an easy-to-navigate Individual Feedback Report. This report accurately measures leadership behaviors compared to more than 5 million leaders worldwide. It allows individuals to identify both strengths and areas for improvement—and then put in place concrete actions to improve.
We know that great leadership creates great workplaces, and, in turn, great workplaces create great marketplace results.
