San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 18, 2013
The Student Leadership Challenge approach considers leadership a measurable, learnable, and teachable set of behaviors. From classrooms to athletics to student government meetings, this powerful leadership model, created by James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner, has helped thousands of young people assess their leadership potential and develop the skills necessary to become exemplary leaders.
The Student Leadership Practices Inventory (Student LPI) is the cornerstone of the leadership development model, created by Kouzes and Posner, authors of the books The Leadership Challenge and The Student Leadership Challenge. An assessment that allows student leaders to rate themselves and be rated by others on the frequency with which they engage in 30 leadership behaviors, The Student LPI 360 Online offers educators time-saving methods for administering the inventory, reporting results, communicating with student leaders, and working with all of their students' Student LPI assessments from one central location.
A new version of the assessment, the Student LPI Self Online is an easily self-administered self-only version of the Student LPI 360 Online which students can complete on their own—in just minutes. It allows a user to simply purchase a code, enter it into the site, rate oneself on the same 30 behaviors, and view one’s own Self report. The Student LPI Self Online is perfect for those who prefer not to begin with the depth that use of Observer surveys offers, whose students may not have sufficient leadership experience to gain insight from Observers, or who don't need the administration and data-collection functions that are available with SLPI 360 Online. Student Leaders can print, share, and save up to five reports, and each report includes feedback data as well as reflection questions and suggestions for further leadership development.
