Sensei Leadership Complexities
‘SENSEI LEADERSHIP COMPLEXITIES’ is a leadership assessment tool used by senior leaders of organizations to understand the complexities that arise when leadership behaviours are used in excess, and how to address these.
We learn leadership behaviours over our lifetime with various theoretical learnings and practical experiences. We tend to adopt what works for us and discard what does not. What works in one situation may not work in another. We may need to use different approaches for different situations. Leadership complexities take place when we tend to overdo certain leadership behaviours, which can result in unintended negative outcomes.
Leadership Complexities described by the creator of the assessment: Ranjan De Silva
The Five Common ‘Leadership Complexities’
We would like to present five common leadership complexities that we have encountered during our leadership practice, along with remedies for each complexity.
Each leadership complexity could be high, medium or low as described below:
• High complexity areas need immediate attention for remedy
• Moderate complexity areas need to be improved to achieve low complexity
• Low complexity areas need to be at least maintained at current levels
About the remedies
Reducing complexity to find the ideal level is difficult to do. It takes discipline, courage, humility, and a willingness to make things simple. Reflect on the remedies suggested, take small action steps, reflect on the impact, take new action and continue an action-reflection process, noticing the behaviour changes resulting from the reduction of the level of complexity and improvements in the performance of your team. More details about remedies and specific suggestions based on the relevant leadership complexity will be provided in the ‘Sensei Leadership Complexity’ assessment report.

The Sensei Leadership Complexities Questionnaire
The Sensei Leadership Complexities assessments are easy to take. Respondents need to select one of 4 options provided for various leadership situations. 20 such situations would be offered for respondents to reflect on and select. The test could be completed in about 20 minutes, and the time taken would vary depending on how fast respondents select their responses. Sensei uses adaptive testing to ensure the practical relevance of results.

Who Created the ‘Leadership Complexities’ assessment?
Omar Khan, the founder of Sensei International, introduced the concept of ‘Leadership Temptations’ (discussed by Patrick Lencioni of The Table Group in his book, The Five Temptations of a CEO) to Sensei International consultants. Ranjan De Silva, Senior Management Consultant of Sensei International, critically examined the concept during his leadership development work over the past 20 years and customised it to suit the practical realities of his clients in the name and style of ‘Leadership Complexities’. Many leaders wanted to find out their ‘Leadership Complexity’ and in response, Ranjan created the ‘Leadership Complexities’ assessment.
