Leadership Diagnostic Questions

Over the past few weeks, I have been writing about leadership. Here are a few diagnostic questions that you can use to examine your own leadership, see how you are doing, and, with the help of the Lord, move you toward better leadership.

  1. Do I have a clear vision of where I want people to be? Read about this here.
  2. Do I know what things about me could hinder my leadership? Read more about this here.
  3. Have I connected with those I want to lead sufficiently to make an impact on them? Read about this here.
  4. Do I know what they need to do to get where they need to be? Read about this here.
  5. Have I communicated the vision and the means to get there sufficiently and with clarity? Read about this here.
  6. Is my own life consistent with what I am telling people to do? Read about this here.
  7. Do I believe that my leadership can make a difference? Read about this here.

Questions on how to help people move forward:

  • Am I expecting too much change at once? Have I understood that this is a process? Read about this here.
  • Do people need steps that will help them move from where they are to where they could and should be? Read about this here.
  • Do people need encouragement to take the steps that they could and should take? Read about this here.
  • Do I need to have a conversation about the wrong steps that people are taking? Read about this here.
