Leadership Quiz

What is your leadership style?

Whether you're a people manager, individual contributor, or member of the community, each day presents opportunities for leadership. As we progress through life, we naturally develop habits that shape our default approach to leading.

While your default leadership style might prove highly effective in certain scenarios, it may not be as suitable in others. Are you aware of your default leadership style?

Take advantage of this quiz to gain a deeper understanding of your personal leadership approach and uncover new ways to lead effectively in this ever-changing, complex world. 


Leadership Styles

The Purpose-Led Leader = Leader Within

In the Co-Active Leadership model, everything begins with your “Leader Within”, which is your place of self-acceptance and self-authority. Purpose-led leaders take charge of their lives by fully accepting themselves and living according to their personal values. 

The Visionary Leader = Leader in Front

Leading in the dimension of Co-Active “Leader in Front”, visionary leaders are natural at fostering genuine connection with people, while directing attention toward a compelling vision. They pay close attention to those who are following to keep everyone aligned and marching in lock-step together. 

The Collaborative Leader = Leader Beside

Leaders Beside support and connect with each other in ways that empowers others to follow. By consciously designing a partnership around a shared vision, each leader can leverage each other's strengths and the pair together as a whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts.

The Servant Leader = Leader Behind

In the leadership dimension of Co-Active “Leader Behind”, servant leaders are committed to empowering the brilliance of others. A Leader Behind coaches others toward their own answers through deep listening, powerful questions, and acknowledgment. 

The Intuitive Leader = Leader in the Field

In the Co-Active Leadership Model, the Intuitive Leader tends to default into the "Leader in the Field." Being a Co-Active “Leader in the Field” means that you can naturally access your imagination, intuition, creativity and insights, and you have the courage to act on what you sense.
