"Leadership development is self development." - John G. Agno

As you consider completing our leadership assessment, keep in mind that effective leaders inspire others to step out of their comfort zone. Leaders encourage us to continue to learn and grow, so as a leader, it's important that you do the same.

The traditional manager who maintains the same old routine and plans his or her day according to what's expected or the "status quo", leaves too much opportunity on the table. If you're in this kind of rut, then for the sake of the people you lead, and yourself, it's time to do something different!

The business and leadership challenges of today and tomorrow will always revolve around change, innovation, passion and creativity. This simple leadership evaluation will help you to enjoy greater business success, through ongoing leadership skill training and self development.

What has worked successfully in the past may or may not continue to provide best-in-class results. Therefore, change and personal growth are healthy necessities that leaders should embrace.

"Most of what we call 'management' consists of making it difficult for people to get their work done."

- Peter F. Drucker

This quick assessment takes three simple steps. 

  1. Complete the assessment: If some questions don't quite fit with your circumstance, feel free to make minor changes to the questions. Stay within the "spirit" of the question. Do not skip questions or the scoring of the assessment won't reflect a clear outcome.
  2. Calculate each column total: Add the number of check marks in each column and enter the total at the bottom of each column.
  3. Add the column totals for your final score: Add all five column totals to establish your grand total score. Review the score ranges and related feedback provided at the bottom of the assessment to read your results. 

Individuals scoring highly should focus on coaching team members, sharing their knowledge to create more leaders within the organization. You also may be instructed to work to fine-tune the areas of leadership needing additional attention.

Your assessment may also indicate that your skill-set can be significantly improved by establishing personal and professional development goals. Ask your immediate supervisor or Human Resource (HR) partner to determine what tools and resources are available to support you in your goal setting efforts. You can also use our Life Balance and Master Action Plan (M.A.P.) tools for goal planning.
