LIFE STYLES INVENTORY (LSI)
The Life Styles Inventory™ (LSI) is designed to promote constructive change – transformational change – with the feedback helping individuals more clearly understand what is currently supporting and hindering their personal effectiveness, with guidance to developing more constructive styles of thinking and behaving.
With researched links to personal satisfaction, stress, effectiveness and quality of interpersonal relationships, the LSI can truly help people change their
The Life Styles Inventory™ (LSI) identifies the underlying thoughts and motivations that guide an individual’s behaviour. These are often referred to as personal styles, management styles and leadership styles and represent the essence of an individual’s effectiveness. The quality of an individual’s thinking and behaviour contributes greatly to that person’s work performance. Fortunately, your people have the power to change
ineffective thinking and behaviour – the kind that can paralyse an individual’s effectiveness. But first they need to know if what they’re doing now is supporting or detracting from quality performance.
The Life Styles Inventory™ (LSI) is based around the Human Synergistics Circumplex describing Constructive, Passive/Defensive and Aggressive/Defensive behaviours. It provides for self-description (LSI 1) and feedback from others (LSI 2).
LSI participants receive inventories, profile supplements and Self Development Guides.

GROUP STYLES INVENTORY
The GSI measures the patterns of behaviours that emerge when people work together. It also provides groups with a self-generated feedback on the “Styles” they exhibit as team members as they interact to solve problems, make decisions, and establish plans.
The use of the GSI is to build an understanding of how the participants can be the most effective team. Exploration of the behaviours within the team creates an understanding of what behaviours lead to more effective outcomes. Certain group styles are positive, synergistic and lead to high quality solutions whereas other styles are counter productive, defeating and lead to solutions of marginal quality and acceptance. Workshops incorporating the GSI facilitated by Sue aid understanding of these team factors and what needs to happen to move into more constructive team behaviours.
