Quiz: Are You a Leader?


Are you leadership material? If you've ever worked for an organization in which those on the fast track are clearly visible, you've probably wondered what the people at the top see in them. It takes more than merely being good at your job to be a good leader. The most gifted athletes rarely make good coaches. So it's critical to distinguish between the skill of performance and the skill of leading the performance, two entirely different skill sets.

Take this quiz to determine if you have the potential to become a leader in your organization. Use the scale to rate your skill level. You may wish to ask a trusted peer or friend to complete the same assessment on you. A comparison of the two should yield insight as to where you should concentrate your efforts in developing leadership skills.
