Description

Each person has their own way of influencing others. For example, some may rally team members around a cause while others tap into team members' competitive drive. One of the keys to being a great leader is understanding your leadership style – the way you influence others – so you can lead with confidence, direct and support others, and harness your leadership strengths while improving your leadership weaknesses.

Unlock your potential as a leader with What's My Leadership Style. Learn to understand how you influence others and gain the confidence, direction, and support you need to lead effectively. With this knowledge, you can leverage your strengths while improving upon your weaknesses, helping you become the best leader you can be.

What's My Leadership Style is a management development tool, leadership style assessment, and training workshop that identifies a person's leadership style. It helps organizational leaders, managers, and supervisors improve performance and become effective leaders.

What's My Leadership Style is part of the best-selling HRDQ Style Suite and is now updated with a new look yet the same great content! This validated assessment quickly and accurately identifies a preference for one of four behavioral patterns based on measures of assertiveness and expressiveness: Direct, Spirited, Considerate, or Systematic.

How it works

By completing What's My Leadership Style, participants will gain an awareness of their leadership styles. With this critical information, they will be able to make deliberate choices about the most effective way to lead in different situations.

What's My Leadership Style starts with a leadership style assessment in which individuals are given 20 pairs of actions relating to leadership behavior. With a limit of five points, assessment-takers distribute points between the two actions in each pair – indicating the degree to which they prefer either action when acting as a leader. The result of scoring the assessment is the identification of one's preferred leadership style:

  • Direct
  • Spirited
  • Considerate
  • Systematic

Completing the assessment requires approximately 10 minutes. After you score the leadership style assessment, we recommend you allow approximately one hour for the interpretation of scores, topic discussion, debriefing, and action planning. The Facilitator Guide also offers an easy-to-follow workshop outline that expands What's My Leadership Style into a two-hour program.

Learning outcomes

With increased awareness of their personal style and a practical mental framework to build upon, aspiring leaders can assess and adjust their actions, interpret the behavior of others, and improve their ability to win hearts and minds in any situation that calls for effective leadership. This will effectively help employees learn how to better lead and influence those around them in all sorts of leadership scenarios with an improved understanding of personal style and a new mental framework. Participants will:

  • Identify personal leadership styles.
  • Learn how to capitalize on style strengths.
  • Discover how to minimize style trouble spots.
  • Learn how to "flex" personal style to interact most effectively with others.

Uses and applications

What's My Leadership Style is ideal for training anyone who needs to influence others towards achieving a goal, and it is appropriate for both new and experienced leaders. You can use the leadership style assessment as a standalone training instrument, or it can be incorporated into a more comprehensive program on leadership. It makes an effective component in training programs for a variety of topics, including:

  • Leadership
  • Management
  • Supervisory skills
