The following exercise will ask you 50 questions about your leadership style, and then give you an idea of your typical styles. If you are still a student you might like to answer the questions as you would if you were a manager in an organisation, rather than the way you would if, for example, you were president of a student society where the leadership style is more casual than that in most work environments.
