Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI)

The LPI: The Most Trusted Source on Becoming a Better Leader


Start your leadership development journey with The Leadership Practices Inventory® or LPI—the world-class, 360-degree leadership assessment tool that is the foundation of The Leadership Challenge®.

The LPI resulted from research conducted by The Leadership Challenge authors Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner. Jim and Barry collected thousands of what they called “personal best” stories—accounts of what people recalled they did when they were asked about their peak leadership experiences. These stories revealed similar patterns of behavior subsequently categorized into The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®:

                            •  Model the Way
                            •  Inspire a Shared Vision
                            •  Challenge the Process
                            •  Enable Others to Act
                            •  Encourage the Heart

Today, the LPI is one of the most widely implemented, extensively researched leadership development instruments available.
