This advanced on-line assessment/ development tool identifies an individual’s behavioural and operational strengths plus their development needs to improve their leadership performance. It measures competence in the context of their own role and the culture of the organisation. LEIPA compares different leadership styles against their importance in the executive’s current role, providing a gap analysis.

How Does LEIPA® work?

LEIPA® provides a precise, defined plan for behavioural change, tailored to the individual’s role within their organisation. The process ensures a rounded view from both self-perception and colleagues, focusing on Emotional Intelligence and leadership styles.

Using best practice in a 360º format, LEIPA® identifies and compares the individual’s habitual leadership styles to those which will have the greatest positive impact. Specific behaviours to change, producing significant performance improvement are pinpointed, delivering a framework for action.

Unlike most EI tools, LEIPA® actually relates competencies directly to leadership. By comparing this with raters’ perceived importance of each leadership style, it is possible to identify the leadership style(s) the manager needs to develop. Focus can now be brought on the behaviours that the identified leadership style depends on. It measures competence in six leadership styles and compares that with the importance of each style in their own role and provides insights into the culture of the organisation.
