Leadership Styles Questionnaire

The following statements will help you assess your leadership style tendencies.  As you read each statement, try to think of typical situations and how you usually react.

 Please use the following marking scale:

  1. to almost no extent
  2. to a slight extent
  3. to a moderate extent
  4. to a great extent
  5. to a very great extent

 Try to answer the questions fairly quickly but, without rushing your responses.
