360 Leadership Practices Inventory Assessment
Participants are expected to conduct a formal assessment of their leadership competencies and use the feedback to develop an action plan to build their leadership capacity. PLDF staff have selected a validated instrument, the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI), for this baseline assessment.
The LPI is a web-based tool that identifies the five practices of exemplary leadership and includes instruments for self assessment, and assessment by others. Participants request feedback from their peers, direct reports and supervisors. PLDF staff generates a report summarizing this feedback for each participant. Participants use their reports to inform an action plan that guides development of individual leadership skills.
