Leadership Style

Every person is born with the power to influence those around them. However, just as each person has a unique background and personality, everyone has a different leadership style. This personality quiz will tell you what your leadership style is according to something called the Leadership Compass.

The Leadership Compass is loosely based on a Native American Indian belief system that was called the medicine wheel. In this belief system, the four directions were described as Warrior, (North), Healer (South), Teacher (West) and Visionary (East). Associated with each of these were the following basic human qualities: power (north) love (south) teaching (west), and vision (east). We have changed them a little to be more relevant to modern situations: North (organizer), South (nurturer), West (teacher) and East (visionary)
