Research Request Form

We welcome interested academicians and scholars to request permission to use The Leadership Challenge or the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) in empirical research studies. We consider permission requests from faculty members at accredited institutions of higher learning who are interested in using the LPI in research projects they are conducting; students at those institutions are also invited to apply. We do not provide such permission for researchers connected with other institutions outside of higher education. Receiving permission to use The Leadership Challenge or the LPI in your research project does NOT include free copies of the instrument, books, or any Leadership Challenge-related resources. All products are available for purchase.

Please read through our FAQ page before moving forward with your request.  Once reviewed, please complete the electronic form below and click submit.  We will then review your request and respond within 3 weeks of your submission.

Note: The LPI will be updated on May 1, 2017 and some of the statements will be modified slightly. Because of this, beginning February 1, 2017 we have paused all new research requests for consideration until after the change has taken effect (May 1, 2017). You may still submit your request but consideration may be delayed.

 If you are interested in using the Student LPI in your research on undergraduate college students or youth, please complete the form here.
