A Global Solution

Leadership Oractices Inventory Lpi

The world-class LPI® is the foundational assessment of The Leadership Challenge®. The assessment 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. Leaders who increase the frequency with which they exhibit these behaviors are able to increase their effectiveness and help others see them as an even better leader.

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 helps leaders move from intent to action and reinforce what they learned. FlashPoint's coaches bring out the best in each leader using the feedback received with the LPI®, and organizations investing in coaching have found a return of more than seven times their initial investment.

LPI Debrief

An LPI debrief with each participant following the workshop provides more personalized attention. During these confidential sessions, a coach guides the leader through the LPI® feedback discussion, action planning, and execution. The coach will work with each individual one-on-one to discuss his or her LPI® assessment results in depth and to develop an action plan for moving forward and putting key behaviors into practice.

Individual LPI Coaching

Individual coaching helps participants own the value of the feedback and connect the 30 behaviors and The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® to the leader’s workplace and leadership challenges. Participants take actionable steps in demonstrating effective leadership behaviors and create a written leadership development plan to enlist their manager and constituents in their developmental efforts. Between coaching sessions, leaders will complete challenging practical exercises directly related to their personal leadership development goals. 

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.
