Leadership Versatility Index (LVI)

Leadership Versatility Index 360 (LVI)

The Leadership Versatility Index (LVI) uses the 360 method of comparing feedback from the “full circle”: superiors, peers, subordinates, and self-perceptions. But that’s where the similarity ends. The LVI is not just another 360; it is a patented solution for improving results through leadership.
