Condestra specializes in the Birkman Method® and the Leadership Practices Inventory®. Both are scientifically robust, reliable, valid methods of assessment, and have a long, proven track record as a basis for providing practical and tangible benefits to users.

The Birkman Method has been described as the "Rolls Royce" of personal assessment tools. Having been in use and continuously developed for over 50 years, the questionnaire has been completed by more than 2 million people from over 5,000 companies. It is comprehensive and accurate, as well as intuitive and easy to understand and use. With over 45 different reports available, it provides an excellent platform for personal, occupational and relational development and performance improvement.

An excellent tool for developing effective leadership practices, the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) is designed to give 360-degree feedback on leadership behaviors. The LPI focuses on the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership, developed by Kouzes and Posner, found to help leaders focus and perform at their personal best. It approaches leadership as a measurable, learnable and teachable set of behaviors. The LPI helps individuals and organizations measure their leadership competencies, while providing guidance through a process of applying effective leadership practices to real-life organizational challenges.

The Condestra offering is not limited to these tools, as other relevant assessment tools can be applied based on customer context and requirements. Administered by skilled consultants, these instruments combined with other techniques provide the foundation for a research-based approach to obtaining client benefits.
