- Analysis of the need to develop leadership skills
LJI evaluates preferences for the four main leadership styles. These are:
• Directive – leaders set clearly defined objectives and rules for team members. They also guide employees’ work goals and establish the path by which they can be achieved.
• Consultative - leaders make decisions but ask their subordinates for opinions. While they ultimately have the authority to make the final decision, they are willing to listen to the viewpoints of every member of their team.
• Consensus - all team members participate in decision making. Leaders involve themselves as a member of the team and discuss possible decisions with the team. They seek consensus and everyone is supposed to take ownership in the final decision.
• Delegative – the leader takes a back seat toward decision making and allows subordinates to take their own course of action.
Depending on the leader, the team, and the specific problem, each of these styles may be more or less appropriate. The LJI contains a specific algorithm that assesses the accuracy of the assessment and at the same time identifies the leader's preferences for the use of a particular style, regardless of the circumstances.
