Who are You as a Leader?
It is important to realize that every leader is different and is driven by different influences. Before you determine how to lead, it is important to explore what your values are and what you are all about. You can use this section to take leadership quizzes and inventories, explore attributes that affect leadership style and begin to develop your personal philosophy of leadership.
Leaders can work effectively at all levels of an organization. Sometimes they are "on stage" and sometimes they work quietly behind the scenes. In order for you to become an effective leader, it is important to get to know your own personal leadership style, what your values are and what motivates you. Listed below are different surveys to help you explore these areas and learn more about who you are and what you believe leadership is all about.
