Highlighting Your Leader’s Opportunities for Development
The Leadership Circle Profile™ (LCP) is the only instrument that measures the two primary leadership domains — Creative Competencies and Reactive Tendencies — and integrates this information so that key opportunities for development immediately rise to the surface.
CREATIVE COMPETENCIES are well-researched competencies measuring how you achieve results, bring out the best in others, lead with vision, enhance your own development, act with integrity and courage, and improve organizational systems.
REACTIVE TENDENCIES are leadership styles emphasizing caution over creating results, self-protection over productive engagement, and aggression over building alignment. These self-limiting styles over emphasize the focus on gaining the approval of others, protecting yourself, and getting results through high control tactics.
With a database of over 100,000 leaders, the LCP empirically demonstrates a strong correlation between these creative competencies and reactive tendencies and driving the best business results. Thus, we know that improving in these areas is not just a feel good exercise, but has a measurable impact on your organization’s bottom line.
Connecting Patterns of Action With Habits of Thought
The LCP is a true breakthrough among 360 degree profiles. It is the first to connect a well-researched battery of competencies with the underlying and motivating habits of thought. It reveals the relationship between patterns of action and internal assumptions that drive behavior. Ultimately, LCP goes to the source of behavior to get greater leverage on change. Furthermore, unlike most profiles that take hours to interpret, LCP integrates all this information in a way that brings the key issues to the surface instantly.
The data in the LCP reveals itself in seconds. At a glance, the whole gestalt is accessible — putting leaders in touch with what is working, what is not, and why! In most 360s, this treasure trove of information remains buried. The LCP makes it easily accessible while it creates a foundation on which ground breaking change can occur at a higher level and sustainable pace.
The LCP is unique in that it reveals a leader’s Operating System: Internal assumptions (beliefs) that run behavior in both creative competencies and reactive tendencies. This allows the manager to see how his/her inner world of thought translates into a productive or unproductive style of leadership. Ultimately, the LCP increases the inner awareness that affects outward behavior.
Sustainable leadership behavior improvements can only come when the mindset driving those behaviors changes first. Only with the increased self-awareness that comes from the LCP can executives learn sustainable ways to improve their leadership behaviors and thereby drive the best business outcomes.
