A Simple Leadership Quiz - Guest Blog


Guest Blog from Kayte Connelly of Best Principled Solutions

“Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.”
— Stephen R. Covey

Understanding the difference between management and leadership is an ongoing dialogue. There are some individuals in leadership positions who have mastered their craft.  They inspire others into action; communicate the same message consistently; can articulate a compelling vision; and hold themselves and others accountable.

There are other individuals who have leadership titles but they stray from true behaviors and are inward and self-focused.  Most of us have come across both types.

In preparation for the 2013 Chick-fil-A Leadercast, this year, a very simple Leadership Quiz, consisting of 7 questions, is available for interested individuals to participate. At the conclusion of the quiz, which you can find at http://tinyurl.com/CFALeaderQuiz, you’ll discover if you are a doer, a visionary, a champion or a collaborator.

There, you’ll also see a link to download 7 tips to Simplify Your Life. These have also been prepared through the Leadercast program.

On May 10, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with other thoughtful existing and emerging leaders at DeSales University. We’ve got a host of activities to kick-off a year-long focus on leadership programs brought to you through the Greater Lehigh Valley Leadership Consortium. To discover more information, go to www.glvlc.com/Services.html.

Dedicate time for you to you. There is no greater gift than one can give to themselves, than the gift of growth. Grow, baby, grow!
