About This Quiz

Ugh! Do you know what the biggest reason most people hate going to work is? Aside from the eight or more hours you aren't able to binge watch Netflix from your bed, the reason you hate work is because of your boss. But what can you do about it, right? Well, there is something to do about it. While many people will complain about their boos, others will make an effort to become the boss. Do you have what it takes? What kind of leader do you think you'd be? 

There is no fast rule to being a good leader, and while some will say it is a task best suited to those who are natural leaders, there is something to be said about people who work hard to get the most out of their employees while still being a comfortable mentor. So which are you? Will you be the all-mighty autocrat? Sure, you'd be successful, challenging and many employees will even respect your ability to keep business as a business and not fraternize with the employees. Or do you prefer to collaborate and build diplomatic relationships? In the business world, they'd say you have the gift of buy-in. 

So, whether you want to be a mentor who inspires employees or take the hands-off approach to leadership by trusting people to lead their self, there is no right or wrong. Which leader are you? This quiz will delve into your passions, how you inspire others and the leaders you already look up to - and sometimes don't. 

It's time to roll up those cuffs, answer these questions and in the end, you will know what kind of leader you are!
