Leadership Character Insight Assessment (LCIA)

It is designed to measure leadership character and provide leaders and potential leaders with practical insight regarding:

  • What leader character is and why it is essential for building strong leaders and organizations
  • Key dimensions of character, their corresponding elements, and how they interact to influence leadership effectiveness
  • Character strengths as well as information on how leaders can grow and develop on each character dimension


  • Equipping leaders and organizations with a deeper understanding of character and the language to discuss leader character in a meaningful way
  • Providing a platform to initiate learning and development around leader character
