A wide range of instruments are available to assist in assessing one’s leadership potential including the Student Leadership Competencies Inventory, Myers-Briggs, and StrengthsFinder.
Student Leadership Competencies Inventory
O∆K has partnered with the developer of the Student Leadership Competencies Inventory to assist our collegiate members in better understanding their leadership potential and to develop a greater appreciation for unique attributes of O∆K members. The SLCI is an online self-evaluation tool to help students discover their areas of strength and areas of development for 60 student leadership competencies. Participants in the 2017 Drive-In Workshops have the opportunity to complete the inventory and learn more about how one can evolve from a campus leader of today into a community leader of tomorrow.
Student Leadership Practices Inventory
The Student Leadership Practices Inventory (Student LPI) is the cornerstone of The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® model. Created by leadership educators James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner, this powerful leadership development model approaches leadership as a measurable, learnable, and teachable set of behaviors, because everyone can be a leader—whether in a designated leadership role or not.
The Student LPI offers students a method for accurately assessing their leadership skills based on The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership, by measuring the frequency with which they engage in 30 behaviors that research shows lead to the best leadership outcomes.
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator
The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) personality inventory is to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful in people’s lives. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in the behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment.
True Colors™ is a model for understanding yourself and others based on your personality temperament. The colors of Orange, Gold, Green and Blue are used to differentiate the four central personality styles of True Colors™. Each of us has a combination of these True Colors that make up our personality spectrum, usually with one of the styles being the most dominant. Identifying your personality and the personalities of others using True Colors provides you with insights into different motivations, actions and communication approaches. True Colors works because it is based on true principles and easy to remember and use – in all kinds of circumstances – from personal relationships to professional success.
