The Leadership Climate Indicator (LCI) is an organisational survey tool that measures the tone set by leaders within an organisation. Drawing upon our expertise as global leaders in applied Emotional Intelligence, the LCI provides answers to the question “how does it feel to work around here?”
The Leadership Climate Indicator is completed by employees who assess the climate created by individual line managers, as well as the climate created by groups of leaders such as senior leadership teams. It provides a snapshot diagnosis of how the current leadership climate is perceived and experienced by employees. Comparisons across teams and functions enable the identification of leadership behaviours that are either contributing to, or hindering high performance.
When to use the Leadership Climate Indicator
The LCI measures leadership climate set by individual leaders, groups of leaders, or both. It provides powerful diagnostic information that can inform strategic initiatives such as culture change or other organisational development programmes.
Insights generated through the LCI:
