Analysis of your Management Leadership Skills

This is an invaluable test that is taken on line and only costs €50.   It will provide you enormous help and guidance in enabling you to get the most out of your learning.  The assessment sent to you when you complete the test will not count in any way to your eventual qualification.  It is intended to enable you to understand your strengths and weaknesses and so concentrate on those parts of the course that are most valuable to you.

You may feel that you are already aware of these.  However, systematic research shows that just over half the population are unaware of their real strengths, let alone their weaknesses.

The test provides you with a logical way of assuring these for yourself.  You simply answer the questions in the test honestly – there are no right or wrong answers.  Only you will see the results.

The test will allow you assess your own performance against 16 key management/leader competencies – including, customer focus, decision making, creativity and team working – which are valued by employers and which are very important for effective performance as a manager or team leader.
There is one test for managers in the Public Sector and a separate test for all other managers.
Depending on which version chosen, your performance is benchmarked either against 15,000 or so managers in the database or against public sector managers only.

In summary, this excellent test will show you what to stop doing (or do less of) and what to start doing (or do more of) in order to become more effective in your current role/activity.  In short, you are told what you need to do to become a more effective manager and team leader and most important of all, how to do it.
