What's My Leadership Style?

In-House TrainingOff the shelf training materials


An organizational development, training assessment identifies leadership style and helps organizational leaders, managers, and supervisors improve performance.

Effective leadership training begins with an understanding of how personal style drives leadership behavior. With this knowledge, leaders can better anticipate their own actions, interpret those of others, learn how to respond most appropriately in any situation, and ultimately, improve both their people skills and their ability to influence and lead others.

Part of the best-selling HRDQ Style Series, What’s My Leadership Style quickly and accurately identifies a preference for one of four leadership styles: Direct, Spirited, Considerate, or Systematic. The assessment illustrates for individuals that while there isn’t one “best” style of leadership, there are strengths and potential trouble spots associated with each style. Understanding how to maximize some behaviors and minimize others is the first step toward effective leadership. 

Learning Outcomes
Theory and Development

The power behind What’s My Leadership Style lies in a simple but effective model. Based on the proven personality theories of Marston and Jung, the model identifies two basic dimensions of personal style:  Assertiveness and Expressiveness. Assertiveness is the effort a person makes to influence or control the thoughts or actions of others. Expressiveness is the effort that a person makes to control his or her emotions and feelings when relating to others.  Combining the two dimensions results in a four-quadrant model with four unique personal styles:  Direct, Spirited, Considerate, and Systematic.  The simplicity of the model makes it is easier for you to facilitate and easily remembered by your participants. You will find the model is quickly picked up by learners and integrated back on the job. 

Uses for the Assessment

What’s My Leadership Style is ideal for training anyone who needs to influence others towards achieving a goal, and appropriate for both new and experienced leaders. The assessment can be used as a standalone training instrument or incorporated into a more comprehensive program. It makes an effective component in training programs for a variety of topics, including leadership, management, and supervisory skills.

How It Works

What’s My Leadership Style starts with a self assessment that takes leaders approximately 10 minutes to complete. Individuals respond to 20 pairs of leadership actions, assigning a total of 5 points between the two actions. The numbers they assign to each action reflect the degree to which they typically use that action when getting others to work toward goals. Scoring the assessment reveals a Leadership Style Profile and a dominant preference for one or more 4 personal leadership styles: Direct, Spirited, Considerate, and Systematic.

After scoring is complete, the product provides for approximately 1 hour for interpretation of scores, topic discussion, debrief, and action planning. The Facilitator Guide includes everything you need to lead a successful training session from comprehensive background information and activities, to reproducible handouts and a professional PowerPoint presentation, and even an easy-to-follow workshop outline that expands the assessment into a 2-hour program.

What to Order

What's My Leadership Style is available in both Online and Print versions. You will need a Facilitator Guide for each trainer and an Online or Print participant material for each learner. Purchasing all of the participant materials you need at one time may qualify you for quantity discounts that can save you money and simplify ordering.
The Online Version is an excellent choice for enterprise-wide training or audiences that are geographically dispersed. It offers 24/7 access, streamlined distribution, and instant scoring. Each Online Assessment includes personalized reporting, full-color charts, interpretive information, worksheets, and action planning.
The Print Version is ideal for facilitators who prefer to oversee scoring and administration of the assessment, if you don’t know who the participants will be before the class begins, or if your learners do not have easy access to computers. Includes pressure-sensitive forms for scoring to aid manual tabulation. The accompanying Participant Guide includes interpretive information, worksheets, and action planning.
First-Time Facilitators

You will need to order a Facilitator Guide per trainer and either 1 Print Participant Guide or 1 Online Assessment for each individual learner. The Starter Kit is a great way to begin your rollout and includes a Facilitator Guide and 5 Print or Online Version assessments. Additional Participant Guides or Online Assessment credits may be purchased separately.

If you are new to this product we highly recommend HRDQ QuickStart Training, whether you are a novice trainer or a seasoned facilitator. It’s an excellent way to quickly get up to speed on the product so you can step into your first training class with confidence.  Personalized, one-on-one telephone coaching is provided in one-hour sessions at your convenience. Our subject matter experts will review the program with you, offer ideas for tailoring the program to your specific needs, discuss typical participant questions and reactions, and more.  Plus, we’ll include a Facilitator Guide for FREE!

Continuing Facilitators

Each time you administer the assessment you will need to new a Print or Online Assessment for each individual. Both are available for purchase in single or packs of 5. Quantity discounts begin at 50 units per order.  Additional Facilitator Guides are available for individual purchase if you have additional trainers or require a new copy.
