Life Styles Inventory™ (LSI

By: Human Synergistics  05-Apr-2012

The Life Styles Inventory™ (LSI) is designed to promote constructive change – transformational change – with the feedback helping individuals more clearly understand what is currently supporting and hindering their personal effectiveness, with guidance to developing more constructive styles of thinking and behaving. With researched links to personal satisfaction, stress, effectiveness and quality of interpersonal relationships, the LSI can truly help people change their lives.

The Life Styles Inventory™ (LSI) identifies the underlying thoughts and motivations that guide an individual's behaviour. These are often referred to as personal styles, management styles and leadership styles and represent the essence of an individual's effectiveness. The quality of an individual's thinking and behaviour contributes greatly to that person's work performance. Fortunately, your people have the power to change ineffective thinking and behaviour - the kind that can paralyze an individual's effectiveness. But first they need to know if what they're doing now is supporting or detracting from quality performance.

  • Clearly describes the individual’s thinking and behaviours in ways that promote constructive change
  • Highlights similarities and differences between self and others views, leading to greater awareness and a focus for improvement
  • Meets rigorous academic and psychometric standards
