Leadership Self Assessment

I came across the following leadership self assessment that may help you determine if you are fit to lead.

Simply answer the following questions yes or no, then determine if a leadership coach can help you improve your fitness to lead.

These questions were adapted from “The Tests of a Prince”, by Ivan Lansberg, Harvard Business Review September 2007

  • Does my experience and training fit the leadership role I’m in?
  • Am I in tune with gaps in my personal development?
  • Have I produced meaningful results for the organization?
  • Can these results be measured objectively?
  • Are my expectations reasonable?
  • Are my expectations achievable?
  • Do I take responsibility for delivering on my responsibilities?
  • Does my team need work? 
  • Do I enjoy a challenge?
  • Have I thought about our strategy for success?
  • Do we have the resources we need to succeed?
  • Am I willing to put in extra effort to be successful?
  • Is my team motivated?
  • Am I aware of what my rivals say and do to undermine me?
  • Is my message clear to everyone?
  • Am I described as fair?
  • Do I place integrity and the organization’s interest above everything else?

Leadership development is an ongoing process … these and other questions can help you assess where you are relative to your development. Additionally, a leadership 360 assessment can shed a tremendous amount of light on your leadership fitness – as viewed by others.

As your personal leadership coach, I can help you accelerate your leadership growth and development.
