The CPI 260® assessment provides an in-depth description of how a “knowledgeable and objective other” would describe an individual. Using the CPI 260 assessment has proven effective for high-level management training or coaching, such as for executive or leadership development. The CPI model proposes four possible overall ways of living, known as lifestyles—implementer, supporter, innovator, and visualizer—and 26 measures grouped into five categories: dealing with others, self-management, motivations and thinking style, personal characteristics and work-related measures.

The CPI 260 assessment can be a valuable tool for improving leaders’ performance and helping plan for the future. It’s also an assessment that is appropriate for use in selection and recruitment.
