The Illinois Leadership Inventory (ILI)

A self-assessment tool designed by the Illinois Leadership Center to help students better understand themselves and their leadership competencies.

At Illinois, we define leadership through 21 competencies across four levels of practice:

  • Personal/Self
  • Interpersonal/Team
  • Organization
  • Community/Society

The ILI is divided into four (4) modules based on the levels of practice. 

click here to take the ILI

Each module will ask you a series of questions about the leadership competencies in that level of practice. It will take you approximately 15-20 minutes to complete each module. Upon completion of a module, you will be provided with suggestions and recommendations for mastering each competency.

 

 

Reward your hard work by signing up to earn a Leadership Certificate!
