PART A (150 words)

In lecture, we explored some of the different styles of leadership, including authoritarian, democratic, and laissez-faire. As you learned, no one style of leadership is necessarily better than another. The most effective style of leadership will depend on the group members and the tasks the group is faced with.

Use the following weblink to complete an assessment to determine your leadership style. This link was also provided in the lecture. Note, a box may pop up asking you to create a login to save your score. You do not need to do this. You can simply close out of the box and scroll down to see your score and what it means.
