Leadership Skill Development

To complement our leadership development products, we have developed a series of leadership handouts. As they are developed, we will continue to add them to this page.

There are two tests in particular that measure these skills: the Leadership Skills Profile (LSP) and the SigmaRadius 360 Degree Feedback. Our Leadership Series Handouts provide additional information about what is important about the skill, how you can improve it, and resources to watch, read, or listen to.

Below you will find the complete listing of our competencies as well as the links to the handouts (if available). Contact SIGMA if you are interested in receiving one that is not available currently. Visit this page periodically to discover more.
