How does the LIFO® Method work?

The LIFO® Method offers a fast, effective and lasting path to improve performance of individuals, teams and organizations through:

  • reducing ineffective behavior and targeting the strategies that work,
  • getting rid of self- or team-inflicted barriers to achieving high performance,
  • giving insight and understanding into what makes people tick, thereby improving communication and motivation,
  • improving personal organization and focus,
  • improving problem-solving strategies,
  • coping more effectively in stressful situations, and
  • increasing personal skills of persuading, influencing, delegation and planning.

LIFO's easy-to-use personal style surveys highlight each person’s preferred way of doing things, both in normal circumstances and under stress.

Worldwide Practitioners

More than eight million people in 28 countries have experienced the benefits of training and coaching programs utilizing the LIFO® Method.

What makes the LIFO® Method effective?

Life Orientations® effectiveness is due to a number of unique factors:

  • it is not a test and there are no right or wrong answers, just a recognition of why people approach tasks and people in different ways,
  • the feedback you receive is all about you (not you compared to a statistical average person), and is powerful whilst being straightforward,
  • the feedback is accurate because the survey requires you to identify what you actually do, not what you would like to do or think others want you to do,
  • the issues that arise from the feedback are relevant and practical, and give a robust basis for choosing new improvement strategies quickly,
  • it is a facilitator of personal exploration rather than a cold diagnostic tool that forces people into a narrow stereotype,
  • the LIFO® Method helps people identify their strengths in relation to when things are going well and also when they are faced with opposition, stress or conflict,
  • Life Orientations® can identify when someone is overdoing their strengths and as a result not getting the results they envisaged,
  • it is a dynamic measure, which means that it can be used time and again to check on personal development.
