This premier 360-degree leadership development tool includes: the LPI Self (completed by the Leader) and the LPI Observer (completed by others chosen by the Leader). 

The Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) was developed through a triangulation of qualitative and quantitative research methods and studies. In-depth interviews and written case studies from personal-best leadership experiences generated the conceptual framework, which consists of The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®:
  • Model the Way
  • Inspire a Shared Vision
  • Challenge the Process
  • Enable Others to Act
  • Encourage the Heart

The actions that make up these practices were translated into behavioral statements. Following several iterative psychometric processes, the assessments were created and administered to managers and non-managers across a variety of organizations, disciplines, and demographic backgrounds.

Backed by 30 years of original research and data from millions of leaders around the world, the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) is the cornerstone of The Leadership Challenge model. Discover how this 360-degree assessment instrument can help you inspire, engage, and develop your top talent to meet whatever leadership challenges lie ahead.
