Character Development Series

Home » Character Development Series

To complement our Leadership Character Insight Assessment (LCIA), we have developed a series of PDF handouts focused on each dimension of leadership character.

SIGMA’s Leadership Character Development Series provides additional information about what is important about the individual dimensions of leader character. Every guide provides tips on how you can improve your skills, and includes resources to watch, read, or listen to.

Below you will find the complete listing of leadership character dimensions as well as the links to the handouts. Contact SIGMA today if you are interested in receiving one that is not available currently.
