For whom and when

Are you trying to find out which (new) employees could develop themselves to take on leadership roles? And which leadership roles would be a good fit for them? Or are you trying to find out which personality characteristics form the foundation for their style of leadership? Reflector Big Five Leadership was developed to tackle these challenges around the topic of leadership. This test gives you an accurate and reliable picture of the leadership roles someone might be able to fulfil or further develop. You can also use the test to gain an insight into the leadership roles within your organization’s management team.  
The test furthermore provides input for career and coaching discussions. Use the results when assessing someone’s performance or when they apply for training. The results can also be used to provide an employee, who will be fulfilling specific leadership roles or wants to improve their leadership skills, with focused coaching.

Working method

The Reflector Big Five Leadership distinguishes between eight leadership roles based on Quinn’s competing values framework. These are the Innovator, Networker, Producer, Director, Coordinator, Monitor, Team Builder and Coach. 
The test links these various leadership roles to the participant’s underlying personality characteristics and compares the participant to a norm group of managers. This highlights their talent for leadership roles. You can also see what preferences in leadership style the participant has and how easily they could develop themselves for a specific leadership role. Furthermore, you can test the leadership (preference) styles and development potential against a specific benchmark. 
Participants can fill in the Reflector Big Five Leadership online at any location or time they desire. They can even complete the test at home. Once the test has been taken, the report will be created within just a few minutes.
