Leadership by Design Survey

This survey instrument mirrors my Leadership by Design Framework for Success.  See my handout to read more about my philosophy.  The work I do supports my clients to experience these statements as true and a normal part of their daily lives.  In doing so, their personal and professional lives gain momentum and are more successful and fulfilling.

Directions

There are no right or wrong answers.  Give a rating for each statement on a scale of 1 to 5, where 5 corresponds to ‘very true’ and 1 corresponds to ‘rarely true’.  Make notes for your own clarification.
