Self-Assessment Quiz: Ten Signs You are Not a Good Leader

Ten Signs You are Not a Good Leader

The best leaders have an internal locus of control–they believe they can fix whatever is wrong, even their own leadership characteristics. The best way to find out how you are doing as a leader is to step back and ask a few questions. This self-assessment process can help you work through leadership challenges or fine-tune your leadership style.

  • As a leader, are you are not willing to fail?
  • As a leader, do you talk more than you listen?
  • As a leader, do you develop people and produce other leaders?
  • As a leader, do you micro-manage (that’s management not leadership?)
  • As a leader, are you insecure or threatened by someone that you lead?
  • As a leader, are you not willing to follow (as in servant leadership) and learn from those you lead?
  • As a leader, do you focus on pleasing people and pandering to people’s whims and fancies? Are you consumed with whether or not you look good to your superiors?
  • As a leader, do you genuinely care about the people you lead or have difficulty getting people to follow?
  • As a leader, do you have a tendency to make the wrong decision because of the fear of fall-out from making the right decision?
  • As a leader, do you dream about being like so and so, instead of being the best you can be?
