The Leadership Survey
has been developed for the purpose to help in selecting people for training to assume higher leadership positions and responsibilities and to give information for tailor-made development plans for leadership personnel.
It has a very high standard as it was developed based on many years of practical experience in teaching leaders to be competent and successful in leading any activity and operation.
It is therefore no shame if you think you are a leader, if you are successful as a leader but still have no high score.
There are two results.
The potential leadership value shows the relationship of good answers and bad answers.
The actual leadership value shows the relationship of good answers and „very“ bad answers, meaning answers which are in actual fact against basic principles of leadership, and which will if implemented result in damage to the activity.
IMPORTANT: Both values can be improved, often not even with a lot of effort, by good training. No human being is forever fixed on any wrong or irrational thinking, no matter how bad was his education and „experience“. It is possible for everybody to change and improve, if there is the willingness and trust that help and improvement is possible.
