The Managerial Style QUICK questionnaire examines the degree to which the participant favors various managerial styles or their combinations. It is primarily a diagnostic tool for employees in managerial positions, team leaders, or project managers. However, it can also be used to monitor managerial style preferences throughout the company.
It is based on the same concept as the Multifactor Personality Profile, which uses four areas defined by two bipolar scales. While the Multifactor Personality Profile describes the key characteristics typical for each scale using adjectives only, the Managerial Style questionnaire employs a range of complex traits and behavior patterns in managing positions, always in relation to a combination of two bipolar scales. At the same time, the scales in the Managerial Style questionnaire are more specific and closely related to activities typical for managers. Moreover, the questionnaire combines several sub-theories of managerial styles within its original methodology.
The output of this questionnaire is not only an easy-to-read chart but also an extensive text in which managerial styles are ranked according to the participant’s preference, an interpretation of their overall style is given, and advantages are compared with potential risks.
If administered with the Multifactor Personality Profile, the Managerial Style QUICK questionnaire also offers a comparison between management style and personal profile together with a prediction of areas where fast development can be expected and areas where it is likely to be less effective.
You can easily determine which managerial styles suit the manager’s personality and which would be demanding or challenging for them because they do not fit their natural personality and behavior.
You can also get a team output of this questionnaire for free.
We recommend administering the Managerial Style QUICK Questionnaire together with the Multifactor Personality Profile.
