What is the LSP-SR?

The Leadership Skills Profile (LSP) reflects the culmination of nearly 50 years of research into human performance, and incorporates the latest in personality and leadership theory. The LSP is a personality-based leadership assessment that provides a profile of expected leadership performance, as well as candid narrative text describing the implications of the candidate’s personality on their leadership.  The LSP will also identify “red flags” capable of impeding success or derailing careers.

Why Should I Use the LSP?

ACCURATE. The LSP is a reliable and valid predictor of leadership performance. In a recent validation study, LSP scores effectively predicted 360° ratings of performance, providing evidence to support the validity of the LSP as a useful predictor of leadership performance.

PRACTICAL. The LSP provides practical and candid narrative text describing the implications of the candidate’s personality on their leadership. Unlike more generic leadership tools, the LSP provides specific data and advice applicable to a comprehensive set of 42 real-world competencies.

INTEGRATED. The LSP has the added advantage of being aligned with our LSP Development Report and our SigmaRADIUS 360 degree feedback survey. Together, these flexible tools deliver a powerful, complementary leadership solution. Furthermore, when benchmarks are in place, the reports allow you to select and develop leaders against a common set of requirements specific to a given position.

CUSTOMIZABLE. SIGMA puts you in the driver’s seat and delivers a customized solution that allows you to select only those competencies that align with your organizational requirements from among the 42 competencies measured by the LSP.
