What's Your PLI ViewPoint?.

Five Skills to a Better Career

Personal Leadership Insight is our understanding of how to positively influence people and situations to create value and growth. The ten P.L.I. Essentials are Vision, Integrity, Innovativeness, Wise Judgment, Service Mindedness, Goal Processing, Skill Assessment, Emotional Maturity, Fostering Relationships and Masterful Communication. Your P.L.I. ViewPoint is a snapshot of your leadership style. It is a reflection of how you communicate your influence to others. Your ability to apply and engage your P.L.I. is determined in large measure by how clearly you understand your ViewPoint. H o w T o S c o r e T h e T e s t There are word groupings or descriptions that are placed across the page. We have supplied three words in each grouping to give you a better idea of the personality trait that we are describing. Please read and score the groupings going across the page. You will be required to evaluate yourself and then place your scoring of the descriptions according to how your personality relates to those words. You must score each box with a 4, 3, 2, or 1. You can use each number only once per row. Place a 4 under the group of words that BEST describe you. Then choose the next with a 3, the next with a 2 and finally the LEAST like you with a 1.

Understanding P.L.I. ViewPoints C A B D Actor Director Manager Writer Your highest score represents your Primary ViewPoint. This is also the leadership style you most readily identify with in others. Your lowest score represents your Shadow ViewPoint. You probably struggle communicating with this leadership style. The key understanding that adds tremendous value to your Personal Leadership Insight is knowing how to maximize the value of your Primary ViewPoint and knowing how to recognize the value of the other three ViewPoints.

YourSpace, not MySpace

Expert leaders must constantly fight the MySpace attitude, the MySpace lifestyle and the MySpace thought pattern. MySpace is a vivid example of how the masses think they must act and speak to get ahead today - it's all about me.

Expert leaders think differently. They are more interested, concerned and focused on YourSpace than they are on MySpace. They think of others before, during and after they speak. They think of others before, during and after they act. Expert leaders get their MySpace right privately, but then their public time is spent in YourSpace. At a basketball camp every year for the top 100 players in the nation, we describe it like this: “You must be me-focused in practice and we-focused in play.” Created and Presented by YourNextSpeaker, LLC.
