Leader Manager Profile

Online Assessment
Select Components:

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.

The online version requires a subscription to the HRDQ Online Assessment Center.

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.

Uses and Applications

The Leader Manager Profile (LMP) provides useful feedback to participants about their leadership and management skills. It was designed to help participants learn about their leadership and management strengths and identify opportunities 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.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this workshop, participants will:

  • Clarify the differences between leading and managing
  • Pinpoint the skills needed to be effective in each role
  • Understand how to balance and improve the two skills sets
