Editorial Reviews


"The Student Leadership Practices Inventory is the best tool I have used to help students assess their leadership effectiveness because it translates the concept of leadership into actions and relationships. By defining and measuring specific leadership behaviors, the Student LPI allows students to not only see how they are doing as leaders but determine how they can improve." —Cathy Early, director of leadership education, National Interfraternity Conference

"Kouzes and Posner have developed the most effective instrument around for assessing leadership skills, and they provide a complete curriculum following the assessment designed to increase students' abilities to reach their full potential as leaders. The feedback from students was so powerful that Kouzes and Posner's leadership practices have been integrated into our comprehensive leadership program." —Kay Bales, Director of Leadership and Service Programs, Ball State University --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover


Students Are Talking About the Student Leadership Practices Inventory

"The Student LPI was simple to use, to score, to understand—it made sense and gave me a handle for figuring out what leadership is all about."

"Made me realize that I am a leader—and helped me figure out how to be a better one at that."

"I really liked that it was focused on students, rather than businesspeople and executives. I could relate to what it was asking and telling me to do."

"I learned that leadership isn't about telling people what to do, but rather coming together to achieve a common goal."

THE STUDENT LEADERSHIP PRACTICES INVENTORY (Student LPI) is the only leadership tool designed specifically for students and young people. Developed by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, the second edition of this celebrated instrument package approaches leadership as a measurable, learnable, and teachable set of behaviors. This 360? leadership assessment tool helps students and young people measure their leadership competencies, while guiding them through the process of applying Kouzes and Posner's acclaimed Five Practices of Exemplary Student Leadership® model to real-life challenges.

The Student Workbook will help you make the most of your Student LPI Feedback Report, appreciate how others see your leadership behavior, and understand how to use that information to become the most effective leader possible. Using the Student Workbook will help you:

  • Examine your first impression
  • Explore consistency
  • Find patterns and listen for messages
  • Seek clarification
  • Focus your development efforts
  • Imagine your ideal future self
  • Overcome barriers and concerns
  • Plan next steps

The newly revised Student LPI offers in-depth, precise results. You will get valuable feedback from yourself, peers, and colleagues. This feedback provides valid and useful information that will help you improve your leadership skills in The Five Practices of Exemplary Student Leadership® so you can:

  • Model the Way
  • Inspire a Shared Vision
  • Challenge the Process
  • Enable Others to Act
  • Encourage the Heart

Develop your leadership potential with the Student LPI.

While in college, the university I attended offered a free leadership program to students across disciplines which they called the Student Leadership Challenge. Among the books and practices we learn from Kouzes & Posners Student Leadership Practices Inventory workbook.

This workbook is a great resource that helps students assess their individual strengths and natural talents. Since I am a firm believer that it is tremendously benefical to build on your strengths and talents rather than focus on areas of mediocrity, I would recommend this workbook to high school, college, grad school and non-traditional students everywhere.
