Clarify perceptions with online surveys
We provide three options for monitoring your leadership practices. Each is a quick, simple and safe tool to help define issues and ideals, and locate start-points for development. We provide 1:1 mentoring sessions before and after survey application, to support your interpretation of results and your planning for methodical development.
1: SCI: a survey of constructive influence
SCI is a 360° survey for monitoring and developing individuals' exercise of constructive influence over an organisation's capacity for thriving. Created by Tom Watkins, SCI is initiated, processed and reported entirely online, it is simple, safe, fast and low-cost.
Issues of principled behaviour, emotional intelligence, motivational practices, relationships management, interpersonal communication, priority-management, self-management and personal organisation are addressed from both strategic and operational perspectives. An extended version also addresses core leadership practices. \
SCI translates generic ideals into specific, observable behaviours. You will recognise them as those which (common sense tells you), directly or indirectly create a flourishing environment and steadily increasing progress. It assesses the presence or absence of these practices of constructive influence, helps individuals acquire them as competencies, and monitor personal progress long-term.
SCI can be used:
- To promote leadership development and enhance leadership practices.
- As a basis for individual or team coaching and development plans.
- To establish starting-points for a mentoring or coaching support plan.
- To monitor and develop key aspects of team or organisational culture.
- As a complement to the Performance Appraisal/Performance Management process.
2: LPI: the Leadership Practices Inventory
Devised by James M Kouzes and Barry Z Posner, the LPI is based on their extensive research into successful leadership. People who frequently demonstrate LPI behaviours are seen as:
- Being more effective in meeting job-related demands.
- Being more successful in representing their units to upper management.
- Creating high-performing teams.
- Fostering loyalty and commitment.
- Increasing motivational levels and willingness to work hard.
- Reducing absenteeism, turnover, and dropout rates.
- Possessing high degrees of personal credibility.\
The LPI is published by and purchased from Jossey-Bass/Pfeiffer. It is often used as the basis for The Leadership Challenge, a Kouzes and Posner training programme. Tom Watkins has been trained to interpret the LPI and as a facilitator of The Leadership Challenge programme.
Contact Tom Watkins to discuss your interest in the LPI.
