Campbell Leadership Descriptor

Starter Kit for up to 5 Participants
Select Components:

The Campbell Leadership Descriptor is a dynamic self-assessment from CCL designed to help individuals identify the important characteristics of leadership.


Designed specifically for use in situations where a comprehensive analysis of leadership characteristics is useful, the Campbell Leadership Descriptor helps individuals identify their strengths and weaknesses in nine major leadership attributes:

  • Vision
  • Management
  • Empowerment
  • Diplomacy
  • Feedback
  • Entrepreneurialism
  • Personal style
  • Personal energy
  • Multicultural awareness

The workbook's self-scored assessment allows individuals to produce their own profile on the spot, and then shows them how their self-profile compares with other leaders. It also includes questions to help them evaluate the implications of their strengths and weaknesses and how to use that information to develop their own action plan for improvement.

The Campbell Leadership Descriptor is perfect for leadership development seminars, classroom discussions, and one-on-one coaching.
