Global Predisposition Indicator (GPI™) is a measure of behavioural preferences, the ‘real you’. Rather than measuring how an individual actually behaves, GPI™ measures how an individual prefers to behave. GPI™ makes the distinction between personality and behaviour explicit. In this respect it does not confuse the two concepts.
‘Blue 4’ is a behavioural style of leadership that our research and practical activities with leaders around the world has shown to be incontrovertibly associated with outstanding performance as a leader. This style of leadership represents behaviour that combines setting direction with being concerned about people, be they those working for the organisation, its suppliers, customers or business partners.
All components of the framework point towards performance; they do so through Organisational Climate. For any organisation to improve its performance, it must first improve its Organisational Climate, which concerns ‘how it feels’ to work there.
