How It Works
About the Authors
The theory behind What's My Leadership Style is 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.

How It Works
What's My Leadership Style? starts with a leadership style assessment in which individuals are given 20 pairs of actions relating to leadership behavior. With a limit of five points, assessment-takers distribute points between the two actions in each pair - indicating the degree to which they prefer either action when acting as a leader. The result of scoring the assessment is the identification of one's preferred leadership style: direct, spirited, considerate, or systematic. Completing the assessment requires approximately 10 minutes.
After the leadership style assessment has been scored, we recommend you allow approximately one hour for interpretation of scores, topic discussion, debrief, and action planning. The facilitator guide also offers an easy-to-follow workshop outline that expands What's My Leadership Style into a two-hour program.

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

What to Order
The What's My Leadership Style? facilitator guide includes everything you need to lead a successful training session - from comprehensive background information and activities, to reproducible handouts, and even a professional PowerPoint presentation. You will need to order one facilitator guide per trainer and either one print participant guide or one online assessment for each individual learner.
Deciding whether to order online or print assessments? Both versions include a personal style report, full color charts, interpretive information, worksheets, and action planning: 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. It's also a great way to reduce paper use in your training. The print version is ideal for facilitators who prefer to oversee scoring and administration of the assessment, who don't know who the participants will be before the session.
