MOUNTAIN VIEW, Ca, March 19, 2012—CPP, Inc. (CPP.com), an industry leader in research, training, and organizational development tools including the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment, and Pfeiffer, the leading training and human resource development imprint of John Wiley & Sons, Inc. and originator of the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI®), announce the Leadership Plus Report: Combining Your MBTI® and LPI® Results, a jointly developed product that gives current and aspiring leaders an unprecedented ability to expand their development and grow professionally 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 in-depth 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.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with CPP on this project,” said Debra Hunter, President, Pfeiffer and Jossey-Bass, “Their reputation in the marketplace is exceptional, and the MBTI assessment is a highly trusted tool with a global reach. Myers-Briggs insights enhance LPI feedback to create a deep and rich experience for leaders at all levels.”
“Like the Myers-Briggs instrument, the LPI has been credited with spawning numerous life-changing ‘aha!’ moments over the span of several decades,” said Jeff Hayes, President and CEO, CPP, Inc. “The LPI is one of the few products currently available that can bring the value of the Myers-Briggs tool to an even higher level, and we are excited about using the Leadership Plus Report to advance the careers of today’s and tomorrow’s leaders.”
A Window into Preferences and Practices
The Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) is the best-selling and most trusted leadership tool of its generation. A 360-degree leadership assessment evaluation, it helps individuals and organizations measure their leadership competencies. The Myers-Briggs instrument, the world’s most popular and trusted personality assessment, helps individuals explore their relationship to leadership, team dynamics, and other areas of work success by identifying personality preferences on four dichotomies: Extraversion-Introversion, Sensing-Intuition, Thinking-Feeling, and Judging-Perceiving.
Used together, the two assessments create a value proposition that is much greater than the sum of its parts. The exclusive report comprises three comprehensive sections providing in-depth insights:
- 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 Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) results. This understanding helps individuals identify ways to increase their use of exemplary leadership behaviors, which in turn will make them more productive, successful leaders.
"The MBTI assessment is a perfect complement to the LPI, and the new combined report will greatly benefit current customers as well as attract new customers," commented James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner, coauthors of the award-winning and best-selling book, The Leadership Challenge®.
