LPI Coach Training


ILA is pleased to offer the Leadership Practices Inventory® (LPI) Coach Training Program. This is the program which will fully prepare coaches and facilitators to be most effective when using the instrument in their leadership development efforts. It will be offered over two days, May 18 – 19, in a virtual format.

The Leadership Practices Inventory® is the 360° instrument which measures the frequency of the behaviors which leaders demonstrate the most while performing at their best. This is the 360° inventory associated with the leadership methodology from the worldwide best- selling book, The Leadership Challenge, developed by authors Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner.

The LPI is one of the most widely used leadership assessments for the following reason. Research has shown that the more frequently an individual is perceived as demonstrating the assessed behaviors of the LPI, the more likely that person will be identified as an effective leader. The LPI is a tool which helps leaders better understand the extent to which they actually use those practices, so that they can determine a workable strategy for improvement. Bottom line: it helps people become more effective as leaders.


Value of the Coach Certification Program

Living in a cave does not make one a great geologist! And similarly, simply understanding the way a survey’s results are presented, does not make one a great coach with that survey.

If you are planning to use 360° leadership feedback, here are some key reasons for becoming more proficient with the LPI:

• You will leave with a deep understanding of the inventory, which will provide you with higher credibility in the eyes of those you are coaching.

• Although simple and concise, the LPI is full of layers of meaningful information for the recipient. You will be able to help people recognize some of the more subtle messages contained in their feedback, making it more valuable for them.

• The people you will coach deserve your best. They need you to know as much as you can, so you can better help them grow and prosper from the feedback.

• Being proficient in the LPI increases your capability and value as a leadership coach. This is one assessment inventory you will want to have the knowledge and ability to use.

We invite you to attend this highly interactive and educational session. You will be surprised at how confident and competent you will be with the Leadership Practices Inventory after exploring and working with it in great detail with us.
