What’s My Leadership Style?

One of the fundamental aspects of being an effective leader is recognizing “how” you operate. This powerful leadership assessment tool provides users with a comprehensive overview of their preferred leadership style. Their results fall into one of four categories: direct, spirited, considerate, and systematic.

This training program includes both an assessment and a workshop. Assessment-takers are presented with 20 pairs of actions relating to leadership behavior and must indicate the degree to which they prefer either when acting as a leader. After scoring, you can work with the assessment-takers to interpret the scores, discuss, debrief, and plan the next steps. The accompanying Facilitator Guide helps outline this process and expand it into a formalized, two-hour workshop program.
