Become a certified administrator of SIGMA’s Leadership Skills Profile – Revised™ (LSP-R)

Who is the LSP-R Certification Program For?

  • Organizations that want to incorporate a scientifically valid assessment with their existing strategic or human resources (HR) policies, including talent management programs, high-potential development plans, or succession planning processes.
  • Managers and HR professionals (including leadership development professionals and training professionals) who want to provide focus and structure to their leadership development and executive coaching programs.

Why Get Certified?

The LSP-R Certification Program empowers organizations to enhance their internal capabilities in leadership skills assessment and development. By participating in this program, organizations can independently manage a comprehensive talent development program, which traditionally would necessitate the involvement of external consulting experts. If your organization is currently utilizing the LSP-R, or intends to implement this assessment, enrolling a leader or a group of leaders in SIGMA’s certification program will provide an essential, in-depth understanding of the assessment process. This knowledge ensures that your organization maximizes the benefits and insights gained from the LSP-R results.

What to Expect

The LSP-R Certification Program is designed to equip participants with the competence and confidence to interpret the results of the LSP-R Focus Report and the LSP-R Selection Report. Participants will learn how to provide coaching based on the results of individual assessments. The program balances theoretical education with practical application, providing opportunities for participants to practice interpreting reports, delivering feedback, and navigating SIGMA’s supplementary leadership development tools and templates.

*Small group sessions for organizations registering multiple participants allow for more flexibility to focus on topics and scenarios that are of particular interest to the audience.
