Leadership Skills Inventory – Self (LSI-S)

The Leadership Skills Inventory–Self is based on research in applied behavioral science and management effectiveness. It focuses primarily on helping you develop your ability to manage “self” and the “people” side of leadership. The research on emotional and organizational intelligence continues to substantiate the validity of the guidance skills in this inventor.

This assessment is a condensed and streamlined version of the book, Transforming Leadership, by Terry D. Anderson.  The book provides you with the theoretical and research background upon which the LSI–Self instrument is based. Completing this learning tool will position you to manage less and lead more, by guiding you to pinpoint the specific skills you need to develop to increase your influence effectiveness.

Note: The LSI–Self was not designed to assess your ability in technical or operational managerial areas.

This assessment will help you gain insight and formulate a solid capacity development plan.

As you proceed you will see strengths you can maximize and identify areas (gaps) that need work.

Using this assessment, you can:

  • Establish your agreement to the 12 Transforming Principles.
  • Evaluate your proficiency level in any of the 60 Transforming Skills.
  • Assess your level of functioning in each of the five skills sections; which are Self-Management Skills, Interpersonal Communications Skills, Coaching, Counselling and Problem Management Skills, Team and Consulting Skills, and Organizational Development and Versatility Skills.
  • Determine your overall level of Direction competency.
  • Become more confident, better equipped, and more effective with a wider range of individuals, teams, and organizations.

The LSI–Self can assist you to do the following:

  • Benchmark key skills levels for anyone in a management or supervisory role.
  • Determine required professional development for executive succession planning.
  • Facilitate team development and responsibility allocation, based on management skills levels.
  • Establish framework and focus points for Executive and influence coaching.
  • Outline steps for a personal development strategy or plan.
  • Assist in the selection, hiring, and promotion for any supervisory or management position.
  • Identify required skills for success in any influential role or responsibility.

This assessment supports anyone in a supervisory role to first benchmark, then outline, specific steps to increase and improve his or her leadership effectiveness.

  • Establish agreement to the 12 Principles.

“The CRG Leadership Skills Inventory (LSI-S) is brilliant! Before I begin coaching a leader, I need a benchmark of their competencies as a leader. The LSI-S clearly helps a leader identify which transformational leadership competencies they are strong in and which ones require amplifying. At the end of the coaching contract, usually 25-30 hours, we use the LSI-S again to measure the leader’s quantifiable gains in competency levels. Aside from addressing capabilities such as communication, the LSI-S ramps up the coaching conversation to discuss their skill levels with respect to self-management including positive mental attitude!”
