Why should every leader in my organization complete the LPI®?

Because leadership is everyone’s business

Leadership is, above all else, about credibility. It’s about trust-based relationships. Ultimately, it’s about what leaders do. How leaders act determines the fundamental state of your organization’s health because it takes effective leaders to create a shared vision, to challenge the status quo, and to ensure that employees have the skills and support they need to be successful. Positive and productive workplaces happen when leadership becomes everyone’s business.

Leaders—at all levels, in every position—influence everything that happens.

The journey toward excellent leadership begins when everyone in the organization is given the gift of empowerment. And the first step in that journey begins when individuals have the opportunity to gain a deep understanding and self-awareness of their values, their passions, and their strengths. When every leader is acting and speaking with a shared language of leadership, employee engagement improves, team performance improves, and a positive impact is delivered to the bottom line.

Aspiring leaders who take that first step and experience the LPI® 360 assessment return to the workplace knowing that “leaders go first.” They set the example by behaving in ways that are consistent, promote progress, and build commitment. They take into their daily routine The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®, intentionally recognizing individual contributions to the success of every project, encouraging experimentation and risk taking, and celebrating team accomplishments.

When you want more effective leaders

Employees who have a high degree of personal credibility also feel proud to be a part of their organization. Ongoing empirical research continues to demonstrate that the LPI 360 helps develop exemplary leaders at every level—regardless of differences in age, gender, education, and ethnicity—all while setting a foundation for individual success that builds on your organization’s mission, vision, and values.

When you want your organization to grow

Through 30+ years of evidence-based research and millions of individuals using this model, quantifiable data paints an extremely compelling pattern. According to the latest research published in the sixth edition of The Leadership Challenge

“The best leaders bring out more than three times the amount of talent, energy, and motivation from their people compared with their counterparts at the other end of the spectrum.”

By liberating the leader within each person, you enable extraordinary things to happen and foster your organization’s growth.

When you want to improve your culture

Implementing organization-wide renewal and change is never easily done. In fact, recognizing the need for change can be almost as challenging. Establishing a culture where everyone is encouraged to be innovative, and to envision the future while keeping an eye on the organization’s bottom line, calls for a strong commitment to leadership throughout the ranks. The LPI 360 can be powerfully leveraged to drive behavior change in your workplace.

When you want leaders who Model the Way

Leaders set the tone for how people should be treated and the way goals should be pursued. They create standards of excellence and then set an example for others to follow. They unravel bureaucracy when it impedes action; they put up signposts when people are unsure of where to go or how to get there; and they create opportunities for victory.

When you want leaders who Inspire a Shared Vision

Leaders passionately believe that they can make a difference. They envision the future, creating an ideal and unique image of what the organization can become. Through their magnetism and quiet persuasion, leaders enlist others in their dreams. They breathe life into their visions and get people to see exciting possibilities for the future.

When you want leaders who Challenge the Process

Leaders search for opportunities to change the status quo. They look for innovative ways to improve the organization; in the process, they experiment and take risks. And because leaders know that risk taking involves mistakes and failures, they accept the inevitable disappointments as learning opportunities.

When you want leaders who Enable Others to Act

Leaders foster collaboration and build spirited teams. They actively involve others. Leaders understand that mutual respect is what sustains extraordinary efforts; they strive to create an atmosphere of trust and human dignity. They strengthen others, making each person feel capable and powerful.

When you want leaders who Encourage the Heart

Accomplishing extraordinary things in organizations is hard work. To keep hope and determination alive, leaders must recognize contributions that individuals make. In every winning team, the members need to share in the rewards of their efforts, so leaders celebrate accomplishments. They make people feel like heroes.
