  1. 1. Leadership Development
  2. 2. Leadership Development Leadership begins with self-leadership and self-awareness, which is the willingness to understand yourself and lead yourself before you lead others.
  3. 3. Leadership Development: Where Do I Start? The best place to start is to gain some knowledge about yourself. There are many leadership assessments available free of charge on the Internet. Search under “free leadership assessments” to find others in addition to those listed next – compare your results across several assessments and see if any patterns emerge.
  4. 4. Leadership Development: Assessments Free Assessments Take the personality assessment at: Read both the description for your 4-letter results, but also the temperament results (two-letter combinations) found by clicking on the words “Please click here to download files specific for your personality type results” at the bottom of the page. What fits? What does not? Take the 8 Dimensions of Leadership at: While the results are tied to a book, the general description of your leadership type is helpful in evaluating when you use that type. Because the results are based on your own self-assessment, the results can vary when you are faced with different situations. Take the assessment with different contexts in mind – home versus work. See if it makes a difference.
  5. 5. Leadership Development: Assessments Free Assessments Take the Leadership Legacy Assessment This assessment is also tied to a book, but it gives interesting results that you can compare with the results of other assessments. Take the Leadership Style Survey This assessment gives you some idea of the kind of leadership style you might use. The results are based on your own self-assessment, so understand that your style could vary in different contexts. Read about the various leadership styles.
  6. 6. Leadership Development: Defining Leadership Now that you understand more about yourself and your possible leadership style, think about how you define leadership.

  8. 8. Leadership Development: Your Impact on Others Once you know more about yourself as a leader and how you define leadership, the next step is to understand how you impact others. You can manage your impact if you have specific feedback about impact:  Having feedback about what people think of you (e.g., you’re bossy) is not helpful because you don’t know what you did to give that perception.  Having specific, objective feedback about the things you did or said (e.g., you use a very loud tone of voice and talk over people) in order to choose how to behave differently and thus, have a different impact.
  9. 9. Leadership Development: Seek Feedback Personal growth and understanding of your leadership style comes from knowing what your default “style” is and how that influences the choices you make as a leader. You also need feedback to help you understand how those choices are impacting others.  Johari Window – Read about this tool and understand how it can help you develop your self-awareness:  Use this interactive self-assessment and feedback tool that is based on the Johari window to assess yourself and gather feedback from others: Have someone you trust read your personality type descriptions and give you feedback about what they see and do not see.
  10. 10. Leadership Development: Self-Directed Leadership Development Creating your own self-directed practices for leadership development gives you a strong foundation that you can build upon for years to come. There are many frameworks for self-directed leadership development available on the Internet. Pick one and practice leading yourself so you can lead others!
