What is The LSP-R Selection?

The LSP-R Selection is a personality-based assessment of leadership skills that uses advanced algorithms to provide a profile of expected leadership performance on up to 50 leadership competencies. It also provides a detailed analysis for each candidate, describing how their personality is likely to impact their performance. SIGMA’s benchmarking feature offers a flexible assessment experience by allowing you to choose which competencies to include in your report.

Why Should I Use The LSP-R Selection?

Practical. The Leadership Skills Profile-Revised Selection Report provides you with detailed narrative text describing the implications of a candidate’s personality on their leadership performance. We’ve created advice for 50 key leadership competencies, giving you more breadth of coverage and practical advice than other generic tools.

Convenient Administration The LSP-R can be completed in 25 minutes on SIGMA’s online platform, with reports available immediately upon completion. When paired with the benchmarking option, this assessment allows you to identify in advance those leadership competencies that are most critical for effectiveness in your organization and generate a report that includes information on only those competencies.

Custom Reporting SIGMA’s custom reporting option allows you to narrow in on the competencies that are most relevant to your organization. Create a personalized benchmark by determining those competencies critical for success in your organization from a subset of our 50 leadership competencies. This process allows you to align the content of your Selection Report with your company’s requirements.

Integrated. The Leadership Skills Profile-Revised Selection has the added advantage of being aligned with our LSP-R Focus Report and SIGMARadius 360 degree feedback system. Together, these flexible tools deliver a powerful, complementary leadership suite to aid in leader selection, training, and development programs.

Powerful and Robust. The Leadership Skills Profile-Revised Selection uses the latest data-driven science on leadership theory and personality measurement to provide your organization with a valid, reliable measure of leadership potential. For a high-level review, the leadership competencies are sorted into four broad categories. This allows you to not only consider potential on individual competencies, but to also review an individual’s scores on Cognitive, Interpersonal, and Senior Leadership Skills, as well as Personal Leadership Qualities.

Superior Development. The LSP-R items were carefully chosen from a pool of over 4,700 personality items, drawing on content from three of SIGMA’s seminal assessments: the Personality Research Form (PRF), Jackson Personality Inventory-Revised (JPIR), and Survey of Work Styles (SWS).
