Have you taken the leadership styles assessment test?

The Leadership Legacy Assessment Test will help you articulate your natural role with clarity, as distinct from your career path, current position, or the current condition of your company. It will help you sort out the distinctions between your roles and titles, and identify where you get the greatest satisfaction and where your strengths lie. Ultimately, it gives you something to think about as you plan the kind of legacy you want to leave.

The self-assessment has 30 multiple choice questions and will take only a few minutes to complete. Results are 100 percent private, visible only to you. We do not collect any information about you and have no way of seeing your results.

Take the web-based Leadership Legacy assessment test now.
