The purpose of this tool is to help provide a holistic view of the areas of your personal leadership. It will highlight where you feel that you are most confident and any areas that you feel need more development. It can be used as a reference during coaching or mentoring sessions.
- Print a copy of the leadership wheel template.
- Using a pen, put a small X on each segment of the wheel based on how strong you feel in that particular area (see example descriptions below). Scoring is 1 - 10, with 10 being very strong.
- If you do not have access to a printer you can use a pen and paper to make a note of the categories and manually score yourself from 1 - 10 against each.
- Next, draw a thick line along the width of each segment where you previously marked an X and then join each edge to the next segment. See examples below.
This will give you a view of your current leadership wheel with a simple view of any focus areas.
