Leadership Development & Coaching
The California Psychological Inventory™ (CPI™) assessments are powerful tools for helping individuals improve their performance. Using a sophisticated technique to extract detailed personality insights, they summarize and explain how other people see a person and judge his or her leadership style. In a recent survey, 66% of organizations reported that they had improved individuals' leadership effectiveness using the CPI 260® assessment. The CPI 260 assessment enables organizations to find and develop high-potential employees, making it an essential tool for your investment in employee training and development.
Enhance Executive Management Training
The CPI assessments help people gain a clearer picture of their personal and work-related characteristics, motivations, and thinking style. We use an empirical measure, comparing an individual’s responses to data on 5,600 managers and executives who participated in the Leadership Development Program at the Center for Creative Leadership® (CCL®). The CPI assessments indicate which of four different ways of living, or lifestyles, best describe the respondent. They offer a unique perspective on how people manage themselves and deal with others, indicating strengths and developmental opportunities.
DISCOVER LEADERSHIP POTENTIAL THROUGH DEEP PERSONALITY INSIGHTS
Measuring true managerial potential, flexibility, and more
The CPI 260® Client Feedback Report gives a true-to-life picture of each person’s
temperament and behavior.
A lifestyle diagram plots scores to indicate whether the person’s style is an implementer, innovator, supporter, or visualizer. The report offers detailed insight into how he or she scored on 29 scales including Empathy, Flexibility, Managerial Potential, Achievement via Conformance, Creative Temperament, and more.
For example, when your high-potential team members score higher than average on the Achievement via Independence scale, they probably prefer independent thinking work, and that they’re good at defining personal goals. Others who score lower than average on this scale probably experience difficulty in vague, unstructured situations - and they need others to specify goals or methods for them. And that’s just one of the scales. The CPI 260 tool is like getting the results of 29 separate assessments all in one.
How do your leaders score compared to other leaders?
There’s something distinctly different about high-performing employees and leaders. For them to be truly great, they need to know how they compare to other leaders. The detailed CPI 260® Coaching Report for Leaders helps high-potential employees develop strengths, target areas for improvement, set goals, and plan next steps. Their answers are highly predictive of managerial competencies, with five decades of empirical research to back that up.
You can compare your leaders’ responses to responses from large groups of successful managers and executives. You gauge how they score next to “the best and the brightest” who - by conventional standards - are on track for continued success and career advancement.
The CPI 260 assessment measures personality characteristics. It provides an accurate description of you, the same way a person who knows you well would describe you. This description includes your favorable and unfavorable characteristics.
Your results on the CPI 260 assessment can help you understand how your personality influences work-related situations. The assessment can also help you discover ways to improve as a leader. It’s based on more than 70 years of research and is used internationally.
Leadership characteristics can be organized into these five core performance areas:
1) Self-management: self-awareness, self-control, resilience
2) Organizational capabilities: use of power and authority, comfort with organizational structures, responsibility/accountability, decisiveness
3) Team building and teamwork: interpersonal skill, understanding others, capacity for collaboration, working with/through others action orientation
4) Problem solving: creativity, handling sensitive problems, action orientation
5) Sustaining the vision: self-confidence, managing change, influence, comfort with visibility
Leadership development that works from the inside out
From awareness to action, the right assessment offers practical insights and suggested action steps, so you spend less time trying to understand endless reports and more time helping people move forward to fill your leadership pipeline. Once your organization has a game plan for the pipeline, leaders at all levels can talk about strengths and weaknesses without offending anyone or getting too personal because they have a common language to address issues.
