Leadership Behaviours Profile

The Leadership Behaviours Profile (LBP) is a powerful and practical multi-rater feedback tool. It offers a 360-degree review of an individual’s leadership performance as measured by the Leadership Behaviours Model.

Developed by Dr Paul Robinson with colleagues at Team Leadership Services in New Zealand, this well-researched Profile provides constructive feedback to help improve and develop performance as a leader.

The LBP provides individuals with:

  • feedback and advice on how important different aspects of leadership are in their current role
  • feedback and advice on their perceived behaviour in relation to the eight factors of the Leadership Behaviours Model
  • a comparison of their perceived behaviour against LBP norm data
  • tailored advice sheets with suggestions on how they could improve their leadership performance
  • an assessment of their level of emotional intelligence, including a comparison against LBP norm data
  • observations on their perceived leadership and management achievements over the last six months; their key strengths; their training and development needs; and suggestions on how they might improve their performance in these areas


The Profile also includes a Pulse Report 6-12 months after completion of the initial feedback. This offers a snapshot of progress along an individual’s leadership journey, providing an excellent opportunity for further discussion and development.

Our Leadership Behaviours Profile accreditation programme is designed for learning & development professionals looking for a practical tool that explores contemporary approaches to leadership. The Profile is only available following accreditation through an approved programme – choose from our tailored in-company or on-the-ground options.

The Leadership Behaviours Model

The Leadership Behaviours Model symbolises a leader with people responsibility, competence and integrity who provides direction and guidance in an emotionally intelligent way.

The Model combines a number of concepts of contemporary leadership theory – including principle-centred, transformational and transactional leadership – with a focus on the practical application of these concepts.

It groups these various aspects of leadership into eight core factors which can be used as a framework to review an individual’s leadership performance.

These factors are:
Values Champion – lives and promotes the values
Team Linker – links work, people and processes
Strategic Thinker – develops and progresses a future vision
Change Facilitator – paces self and team through change
People Motivator – gives positive encouragement of team and individual performance
Responsibility Giver – empowers within clear roles
Competent Performer – matches personal strengths and effort with what needs doing
Situational Decision-Maker – makes effective decisions contingent on the situation and the people

In addition to these eight core factors, the Model provides insight into an indivdual’s emotional intelligence, a characteristic increasingly associated with effective leadership. This second-level factor is at the core of the Model, indicating its centrality to the Leadership Behaviours approach.
