Personal Leadership Assessment (Shortened Version)
The following questions make up a subjective assessment of your leadership. The purpose of the assessment is to celebrate strengths and identify 2-3 areas of growth that will produce opportunities to adjust leadership to meet the needs of the challenges you face on a daily/weekly/yearly basis. Authenticity is appreciated. If you encounter any confusion, it is recommended you answer the question to the best of your ability. Each question uses a scale from 1-4, 1-5, or 1-6. The numeric value most often does not signify any meaning and only feeds into a rating system aligned to the different components of personal leadership. Answer each question by indicating how you would rate yourself according to the two answers provided. Your responses on this assessment are completely confidential as well as the results of the assessment.

There is a place where preparation meets opportunity. Its well hidden too!

Then blow that crap up and lets make a new one
No sense crying over spilled milk.
Surveys are so much fun. *
