You know those people, the ones who seem to exude charisma and charm. The people who seem to not be afraid of public speaking or being the project leader. The people who motivate and collaborate. The people who celebrate wins and aren’t afraid of failure? So, are these traits inherently present at birth or can these qualities and skills be learned?  Lucky for you, we’re here to say, that these leadership skills can be learned and developed with the help of LPI: Leadership Practice Inventory®.

What is LPI®?

Now offered by Resources Unlimited, The LPI: Leadership Practices Inventory® is the best-selling and most trusted 360-assessment of its generation. The LPI® helps individuals to measure the frequency with which they demonstrate the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership and enables them to act on their discoveries. Leaders gain deep insight into how they see themselves as leaders, how others view them, and what actions they can take to improve their effectiveness.

Authors James Kouzes and Barry Posner created their leadership style as the Leadership Challenge Model. Their program is about what leadership is, and what they believe leadership means to people.

The model was developed after research and interviews were conducted based on peoples’ individual experiences with leadership. Based on their research they claim, “…good leadership is an understandable and universal process…” involving five practices and, within each of those, two key behaviors.
