Welcome to the Leadership Communication Style quiz! Being able to speak with confidence is an essential ingredient in your success as a leader and advancing your career. Leaders are often judged on how “visible” they are in meetings (how often they speak up and add value) and their ability to think and speak on the fly.

Our short quiz examines key factors that influence your ability to speak up with confidence any situation. The only right answers to this quiz are yours. Answer exactly as you understand the question.

You’ll get immediate feedback based on your quiz score. Your Leadership Communication Style Profile will highlight what factors give you strength and confidence, the situations you find most challenging to remain confident in, and tips on how to overcome one of your key challenges.
