How to Assess your Leadership Style?
Dr. Alan Williams, Member
I'm strongly familiar with the work of Daniel Goleman, Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee; I've worked with all three.
One answer (which I support) is that self assessment of your own leadership style (which essentially means leadership behavior) can never be accurate. The reasoning for that notion is that unconsciously any person would complete the assessment questions, etc., to build a picture of what that individual would like to be, or what that individual thinks would be acceptable to / or would impress others.
IMHO the most accurate such assessment comes from the combined assessments
of the staff who report to the specific leader.
