About This Free Leadership Assessment
Leaders and Managers are the keys to an organization’s success! Competent management is what sets the tone (and the limits) for success. Further, there is a direct correlation between the skills and abilities of a manager and the contribution of staff. This assessment is designed to give an indication of the effectiveness of someone’s leadership skills.
This free leadership assessment is an interesting one. It measures your effectiveness at being a leader and manager – however, if YOU take it, the results might be skewed by your biases.
One of the most useful ways to use this assessment is to take it yourself, leader, then have others take the assessment, answering the questions based on how they view you. Comparing the two results is, quite often, very interesting.
To evaluate your leadership from your team’s perspective, do the following:
1. Explain the process to your team, emphasizing anonymity – and that there will be no repercussions to the results.
2. Place a manila envelope in a public place that can be accessed easily.
3. Send a link to the assessment asking each team member to fill it out with responses that would rank your leadership. Ask them to do so by a certain date.
4. Tell them to write the number they get as their result on a piece of paper with nothing that could identify who wrote the number – i.e. no name, department letterhead, etc.
5. After all the responses are received, add up all the numbers, divide by the number of pieces of paper, and you will get the average of all your team members. Use the leadership assessment scale to interpret the result.
Your willingness to assess your leadership abilities, is in direct proportion to your potential to be a good leader. And don’t get stuck in the result. That would make you a victim. Let the feedback motivate you to be better. Just like the vital signs associated with your physical health, this feedback constitutes the vital signs of your leadership health.
