And while people who know me would disagree, my human skills are a close second at 15. It is true that I come off as friendly and emphatic, I believe this is because I constantly actively try to be so. It doesn’t exactly come to me naturally but I’ve been able to gradually increase my human skill over the years and hope to continue to do so. My highest skill point turned out to be conceptual. As someone who constantly works with ideas and different visions, I was honestly surprised my score for conceptual skill did not come up higher. This, however, is not necessarily a bad thing. Seeing my score made me realize that I may not have as much skill as I envisioned in that are and may need to work harder to achieve the level I thought I was at. Taking these questionnaires will definitely aid me a lot in my journey of understanding and improving my leadership approach and I know I will 8

After completing the Style Questionnaire (SQ) and comparing my results to the score table, I found out that my task score was higher than my relationship score. This result suggests that I am more likely to lead with an emphasis on task. Therefore, I seem to be more task oriented than people oriented. Both of my scores are in the lows with my task score being “moderately low” and my 10 Key: 1= Never 2= Seldom 3= Occasionally 4= Often 5=Always 1) 4 2) 3 3) 3 4) 3 5) 4 6) 2 7) 3 8) 3 9) 3 10 ) 4 11) 4 12 ) 2 13 ) 3 14 ) 3 15 ) 4 16 ) 2 17 ) 2 18 ) 2 19 ) 3 20 ) 3
relationship score being “low”. This shows that I still need to work on my leadership approaches. Neither the results’ range nor their place according to one another really surprised me as I tend to focus on the responsibilities at hand while working on tasks and sometimes may be a bit inconsiderate when it comes to human relationships. Usually -especially if the situation at hand is stressful-, I don’t really focus on whether or not I’m being polite towards my peers and I see now that this behavior can create a stressful group environment. However, I’ve always thought that peers can and should be able to differentiate between work and personal relations and my opinion hasn’t drastically changed after one questionnaire. I will try and improve my human skills in order to also improve my relationship score eventually. The Least Preferred Co-worker Measure ended for me with a score of 83, which is way higher than the threshold given for “High LPC” individuals (which is 64). High LPC individuals are described as being highly relationship motivated. My score is pretty high considering the above-mentioned threshold, which is interesting to me because my SQ score showed my relationship score as being lower than my technical score. This might be a bit of a hypocrisy on my part as it shows that while I don’t necessarily focus on the relationship
