Leader Manager Profile
Today's business climate demands all managers effectively combine both leadership and management skills. However, most managers are not clear on what distinguishes these competencies. Set a new company standard with the Leader Manager Profile. A training assessment illustrating how competent leaders contribute to the demands of your marketplace.
Available in online and print format
- Online version available through the HRDQ Assessment Center.
- Students may self-enroll in the online version.
- Self-enrollment is also a good option for trainers and consultants who wish to evaluate content for their organization or client.
How It Works
The Leader Manager Profile utilizes a 36-item assessment in digital or print format. The assessment presents 36 statements pertaining to either managing or leading. After scoring is complete, participants receive a profile plotting their leadership and management scores (as well as sub-scores for six individual competencies). Feedback scores from associates provide a side-by-side comparison. Finally, an action planning activity, worksheet, and reflection questions provide a framework for improvement.

This assessment is highly effective when used as a stand-alone instrument. However, it can serve as a component of a larger management or leadership training program.
