Resource description

The Leadership Assessment Questionnaire (LAQ) is a 360-degree survey instrument that has been developed as a simple diagnostic tool to help us understand leadership behavior. The LAQ can help organizational leaders in two ways. First, it can be used to identify leaders' own style of leadership and help formulate appropriate development objectives. Second, it can provide avenues for development of an executive team in which multiple leadership archetypes are represented. The LAQ is based on eight leadership archetypes-Strategist, Change-catalyst, Transactor, Builder, Innovator, Processor, Coach, and Communicator. These archetypes are representations of ways of leading in a complex organizational environment. In this article, we discuss the development, design, and psychometric analysis of the LAQ. We detail the conceptual foundations of the questionnaire and the psychometric methods used to confirm the validity and reliability of the instrument. We conclude with avenues for future research.
