Leader Competency Inventory (LCI)

The Leader Competency Inventory (LCI) is a method for measuring an individual’s use of four specific dimensions of leadership – information seeking, conceptual thinking, strategic orientation, and service orientation.

Participants are asked to respond to 46 items in which the state the degree to which they have demonstrated or seen various behaviors. At most 1 hour is needed for completion for the LCI and is done through a pencil-and-paper format. There are four competencies to report upon: Information seeking, conceptual thinking, strategic orientation, and customer service orientation. Although this self reporting questionnaire is able to show participants their degree of leadership competencies, the participants are also able to see how colleagues and direct reports see their leadership competencies.
