Harnessing the Power of the Leadership Circle Profile | Leadership


In today's rapidly changing and complex business landscape, effective leadership is crucial for organisations to thrive. Leaders play a vital role in leading change, driving innovation, inspiring their teams, and achieving sustainable growth. To enhance and scale their leadership capabilities, many executives and organisations have turned to the Leadership Circle Profile™ (LCP). This powerful assessment tool provides valuable insights into leadership strengths and blind spots, and catalyses opportunities for growth and increasing impact. In this blog post, we will explore the power of the Leadership Circle Profile and how it can transform leadership effectiveness and ultimately business performance.

Understanding the Leadership Circle Profile™:


The LCP is a comprehensive, validated, and powerful 360-degree assessment that offers a deep understanding of an individual’s leadership competencies and underlying beliefs. It is unique among leadership assessment tools, as it measures both the inner and outer aspects of leadership, combining quantitative data with qualitative feedback to provide a holistic view of a leader’s effectiveness.

The assessment evaluates two primary leadership domains: Creative Competencies and Reactive Tendencies.


Creative Competencies: 


These competencies encompass the qualities that lead to high-fulfilment, high-achievement leadership and are key to driving success. They include vision and strategic focus, whole system thinking, authenticity, self-awareness and self-development, and the ability to relate to, inspire and develop others. Understanding these competencies helps leaders to build on and develop their most effective leadership behaviours.

Reactive Tendencies: 


These tendencies are the deliciously-human but ultimately self-limiting patterns that can hinder a leader’s effectiveness if over-used and unconsciously relied upon. They include behaviours such as chasing perfection, people-pleasing, and distancing oneself from conflict. By identifying and addressing these reactive tendencies, leaders can consciously break free from counterproductive patterns and unlock their full potential.

The results of the assessment are organised and presented in a circular graph, which symbolises the complexity but wholeness of an individual, and quickly illuminates integration and interactions between the different dimensions of self. The detailed and visual representation of the scores provided, enable a leader to quickly identify the most significant and important drivers and detractors of their leadership style.

The Power of Self-Awareness:

The LCP goes beyond surface-level feedback and encourages leaders to delve deep into their underlying beliefs and assumptions. It enables leaders to gain profound self-awareness by uncovering the root causes of their behaviours and identifying any unconscious biases that may be impeding their leadership effectiveness. This heightened self-awareness serves as a catalyst for personal growth and allows leaders to make conscious choices that align with their values, desired leadership style.

Opportunities for Leadership Development:

Once leaders have a clear understanding of their strengths and blind spots, they can embark on a journey of development and growth. The LCP offers targeted feedback and developmental resources to help leaders bridge the gap between their current and desired leadership capabilities. By focusing on their developmental opportunities, leaders can enhance their leadership effectiveness and overcome any limitations that may be holding them back.

Systemic Impact:

Leadership effectiveness extends beyond individual performance; it has a profound impact on the entire organisation. The LCP recognizes this interconnectedness and emphasizes the importance of leaders’ impact on their teams, culture, and organisational performance. By leveraging the insights gained from the assessment, leaders can foster a culture of trust, collaboration, and innovation, leading to improved employee engagement and organisational outcomes.

Sustained Growth and Adaptability:

In today’s rapidly evolving business landscape, leaders must continually adapt and grow. The LCP offers a framework for ongoing development and growth, providing leaders with the tools to navigate complexity, embrace change, and lead with agility. By fostering a growth mindset and a commitment to lifelong learning, leaders can stay ahead of the curve and effectively guide their organisations through various challenges.


The Leadership Circle Profile™ is a powerful tool that, with the support of a certified coach, enables leaders to gain a deep understanding of their leadership capabilities, strengths, and areas for growth. By leveraging the insights provided by this assessment, leaders can enhance their self-awareness, transform their leadership style, and drive meaningful change within their organisations. The power of the LCP lies in its ability to unlock leadership potential, foster continuous growth, and create positive and lasting impacts on individuals, teams, and whole organisations.
