A Global Solution

Leadership Oractices Inventory Lpi

The world-class LPI®  was developed by authors Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner to quantitatively measure the frequency of behaviors within The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®: the practices and behaviors that strong leaders demonstrate, based on more than 30 years of research.

These practices are: Model the Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, and Encourage the Heart.

Each of these practices reflect the behaviors that effective leaders regularly engage in. The LPI helps leaders to increase the frequency with which they exhibit these behaviors, increase their leadership effectiveness, and help others see them as better leaders.

The LPI® is one of the most widely implemented, extensively researched leadership development 360 instruments, worldwide. It is now available in multiple languages: English, Arabic, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, and Portuguese.


Leadership Coaching With The LPI®

Coaching with The LPI® builds leadership capabilities by providing leaders with support and accountability throughout their leadership development process. Coaching solutions we can provide with the LPI include:

Individual coaching/debrief: Our coaches will work with leaders one-on-one to discuss their LPI® assessment results in depth and to develop an action plan for moving forward and to put key behaviors into practice.

Group Coaching: FlashPoint's coaches work with smaller groups of leaders on challenges and opportunities for growth, while also providing participants with more personalized attention. Group coaching gives participants the opportunity to cross-share tips and techniques to improve and creates a safe environment for leaders from different teams across the organization to discuss their LPI® feedback and progress on action plans.
