    leadership is very individualist. Every one develops his/her own style depending upon the context in which he /she operates. No style can be generalized. every one is a leader given that they operate at different emotional & spiritual quotients.

    Very nice tool. Though, I fully agree with Lois that choices offered are limited and one may tend not to agree with either of the options fully, but by choosing the nearest one the results are quite accurate. Very precise overall/ general assessment in such a small span and with only 10 questions.

    It’s worth to see what emerges out of this quiz. Mostly confirms to what I am.

  • Atif Khan - July 19, 2015

    I think some questions replies are based more on the context or situation and less linked with the style. For example, for me achieving the objective of tasks given to my employees is more important than my preference whether they follow their method or my instructions/guidelines to complete the tasks. Overall, the agree with the assessment which has identified my style as “Diplomatic”.

  • Alpha Bah - July 19, 2015

    I believe that leadership style should be adaptable to the circumstances, your situation and that of the organization or team that you’re leading. For example, if I consider myself to be in a different organisation that I had worked for, my answers would be different, so does the result.

    True great leaders are those who are able to adapt as required.

    Nice one. Thanks. I didn’t see an option for a Business Owner – would the interpretation have been different for the same set of responses?

  • Nina Merchant - July 16, 2015

    Comfortable with my ‘preferred’ style, but does not always work in all situations or cultural contexts. need to be able to flex. one’s style

  • Dorus Evekink - July 16, 2015

    The test showed that I am a idialist.I certainly am because I have learned after many years in business that giving trust ,motivation and purpose leads to excellent results.However not all can handle it, so they were advised to leave.

  • Janet Beatty - July 15, 2015

    My experience is that one’s leadership style is not static. One adjusts based on the culture and the individual leadership styles of the team one is part of. For example one requires pragmatism another stewardship.

  • Bright Osei - Mensah - July 15, 2015

    This is a great piece. The exercise confirms who I am and it has helped me to get to know myself more and the way I must go about situations and events as they come.

  • Teresa A. Brewer - July 11, 2015

    I think the “go giver” leadership style is optimal in building others strengths. I agree with this assessment!

  • Nahusenay - July 09, 2015

    Thank you very much for the quiz. It helps me to look back my self. Especially, to look at my developmental areas.

  • kimberly mikus - July 07, 2015

    I feel that kindness and respect can go a long way when you are dealing with anyone , even in Leadership!!

  • Ed Yahnig - July 07, 2015

    Interesting survey assessment but challenging for me to select one particular method of management. I seemed to jump back and forth when it comes to managing people. I don’t necessarily agree that you need to have a strict “chain of command” but I also expect to have my directives followed. I believe that if you treat your staff with respect, show them support and make sure that your expectations are clear, that the work environment tends to be more productive.

  • Lois Demerich - July 07, 2015

    The questions did not offer enough choice in response. Generally I would not select one or the other of the answers provided, but opted for the one that seemed a little closer to my style. This outcome may be a little flawed given the limited options.

    Thanks it is always interesting to see what some survey says….
