Make Better Hiring Decisions with the LSP-R Selection Report

Earlier this fall, SIGMA announced the release of the Leadership Skills Profile-Revised (LSP-R) with the launch of the LSP-R Focus Report. This marked a major update to one of SIGMA’s flagship assessments designed to support leadership development. Now, we are excited to expand our suite of LSP-R offerings with the release of the LSP-R Selection Report.

The Leadership Skills Profile-Revised Selection Report is a personality-based leadership assessment that predicts candidates’ performance on 50 competencies that are critical to leadership effectiveness. Additionally, the LSP-R Selection report also provides three summary scores for each candidate: Overall Leadership Performance, Interpersonal Leadership Effectiveness, and Task Orientation. Interpersonal Leadership Effectiveness reflects a leader’s proficiency in communicating and interacting with others, whereas Task Orientation reflects a focus on completing the tasks necessary to accomplish important goals and objectives. These summary scores allow for an easy, “at a glance” comparison among job candidates. To make these comparisons even easier, stay tuned for the upcoming release of the LSP-R GroupView, which provides a quick overview of summary scores and more detailed competency scores for multiple candidates in one convenient table.

In addition to summary scores, the Leadership Skills Profile-Revised Selection Report also provides a detailed analysis of each candidate that describes how the individual’s personality is likely to impact their performance on each of the 50 leadership competencies. With this feature, the LSP-R Selection Report gives you a broader coverage of performance than you are likely to find with other tools. Interested in assessing only those competencies that are critical for success in your organization or for a specific leadership role? We will soon be offering a benchmarking feature, which allows you to customize the competencies that are included in the LSP-R Selection Report.

Another strength of the LSP-R Selection Report is its alignment with our LSP-R Focus Report and SIGMARadius 360 degree feedback system. This complementary leadership suite offers a powerful solution for those looking to select leaders based on their expected performance on critical competencies, and then support their continued development in these same areas.
