The chart allows you to see where your perceptions are the same as those of others and where they differ. There are no “perfect” scores for this questionnaire. The purpose of the instrument is to pro-vide a way to assess your strengths and weaknesses and to evaluate areas where your perceptions are similar to or different from those of others. While it is confirming when others see you in the same way as you see yourself, it is also beneficial to know when they see you differently. This assessment can help you understand your assets as well as areas in which you may seek to improve.

If your relationship score is higher than your task score, your primary concern tends to be dealing with people, and your secondary concern is directed more toward tasks. If your scores are very similar to each other, it suggests that your leadership is balanced and includes an equal amount of both behaviors.If your score is 45–50, you are in the very high range.If your score is 40–44, you are in the high range.If your score is 35–39, you are in the moderately high range.If your score is 30–34, you are in the moderately low range.If your score is 25–29, you are in the low range.If your score is 10–24, you are in the very low range.Building Your Leadership ProfileIf you have the interactive eBook version of this text, log in to access the Leadership Profile Tool.
