Subject: Talent development at YOUR COMPANY

Hello NAME,

Over the next few months, our leadership team will be formalizing a talent development process for YOUR COMPANY. We have a few objectives for this process, including identifying opportunities for development across the organization, assessing the skills of our current internal talent, and providing support for those interested in developing their skills. We have partnered with SIGMA Assessment Systems to create a robust, comprehensive process that will help us meet our development goals.

As part of this process, we would like to include you in the assessment process with the Leadership Skills Profile – Revised (LSP-R) assessment. The LSP-R is a self-rated measure of leadership potential that can be used to identify personal strengths and opportunities for growth. The leadership assessment takes approximately 25 minutes to complete and will help us to understand general trends of skills and gaps within our company.

On DATE, you will receive an email from SIGMA ( with a link to take the LSP-R. Please take 25 minutes between DATE and DATE to complete the assessment. Upon completion, you will be sent an LSP-R Focus Report that will contain your assessment scores, as well as custom feedback based on your results and activities to support self-guided development. You will be able to use the Focus Report to understand your personal profile of strengths and development opportunities to guide your development efforts. Please keep an eye out on DATE for the link to this assessment.

If you have any questions about our talent development plans, this assessment, or how your results will be used, you can reach out to myself or one of our SIGMA consultants, Dr. Brittney Anderson (, and we’d be happy to answer your questions.

Ready to Get Started?

If you are ready to launch a leadership assessment with your team, take a look at SIGMA’s Leadership Skills Profile – Revised (LSP-R). The LSP-R is a personality-based assessment of leadership skills that can be used to guide leadership development efforts. The test scores individuals on 50 leadership competencies including cognitive, personal, interpersonal, and senior leadership skills. Everyone who takes the LSP-R will automatically receive a Focus Report which includes a summary of scores and analysis of results, as well as templates and activities for creating a personalized development plan.
