The Life Styles Inventory (LSI) is an individual development tool that uses both self-assessment and colleague feedback to identify individual thinking and behavioural styles.
Through the Homeward Bound program, each participant is provided with LSI coaching one-on-one to help us understand our strengths and areas for development, ultimately empowering us to embark on our own journey to be better at everything we do.
The Life Styles Inventory was developed to assist us in getting to know ourselves. It is based on a combination of respected psychological and management theories and helps to identify our beliefs, values, behaviours and assumptions about ourselves. Essentially the LSI is about our career, health, relationships and well-being.
The LSI gives us an opportunity to look at our thinking and behaviour. The LSI has two parts:

We can then compare the LSI 1 and LSI 2, to identify the our confirmed strengths, unrecognised strengths, blind spots, and stumbling blocks. Our coach will then guide us through the findings and help us develop a strategy to change the way we think and therefore behave.
There are 3 main styles which represent different ways of thinking and behaving:
