Mountain View, Calif. — March 19
CPP Inc., a research, training and organizational development tool firm, including the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment, and Pfeiffer, a training and human resource development imprint of John Wiley & Sons Inc., announce the “Leadership Plus Report: Combining Your MBTI and LPI Results,” a jointly developed product that seeks to give leaders an ability to expand their development as they spearhead key organizational initiatives.
The Leadership Plus Report is built on the integration of Pfeiffer’s Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) and CPP’s Myers-Briggs personality assessment. By combining the LPI’s view of applied leadership behavior practices through 360-degree feedback with the Myers-Briggs self-evaluation and insight into personality, the two companies have created a multifaceted, holistic approach to devising next steps for leadership skill building and improved performance.
The LPI is a 360-degree leadership assessment evaluation, which helps individuals and organizations measure their leadership competencies. The Myers-Briggs instrument, a personality assessment, helps individuals explore their relationship to leadership, team dynamics and other areas of work success by identifying personality preferences.
Used together, the two assessments create a value proposition that is much greater than the sum of its parts, the companies said.
The report comprises three sections providing insights in these areas:
• Type description: Provides a description of the user’s MBTI type and personality preferences.
• Leadership style: Describes how that individual’s MBTI type influences his or her leadership approach.
• Combining preferences and practices: Offers users guidance on how to map their MBTI results with their LPI results. This understanding helps people identify ways to increase their use of exemplary leadership behaviors, which in turn will make them more productive, successful leaders.
