PERSONAL LEADERSHIP ASSESSMENT

As an added resource for 2015 AIA Leadership Institute, we have secured access for participants to take part in an optional Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) through education distributor Wiley. This helpful tool is a way to assess your leadership skills, providing you a Self Report following a brief series of questions.

The assessment is based on the research of James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner, and measures your abilities based on The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®, from Kouze and Posner's internationally best-selling book, The Leadership Challenge. Based on years of research, they approach leadership as a measurable, learnable, and teachable set of behaviors.

Michael Ayles will be utilizing this assessment as a sample during his presenting on Living Your Life As A Leader.
