About the Leadership & people management test

Powerful leaders scale your organization’s potential. They carry out impactful strategies and provide actionable directives that get results.

This Leadership and People Management test evaluates candidates’ abilities to delegate authority and task responsibility, plan and support the development of others, provide timely guidance and feedback, and gain acceptance of ideas and plans. Rather than proposing a specific leadership style, this test follows the situational theory of leadership developed by Blanchard and Hersey and asks candidates to evaluate factors to decide when to tell, sell, participate, or delegate in different scenarios based on the needs of each situation.

This screening test will help you identify leaders who have a genuine interest in developing others and can unite talent behind important objectives. These are the leaders who understand how to align the needs and goals of the organization with the skills and aspirations of their team members to produce results and satisfaction at all levels. Successful leaders lead by example and create a space where people can share ideas, ask questions, and be accountable for their actions.

FAQs

What is the difference between an assessment and a test?
An assessment is the total package of tests and custom questions that you put together to evaluate your candidates. Each individual test within an assessment is designed to test something specific, such as a job skill or language. An assessment can consist of up to 5 tests and 10 custom questions. You can have candidates respond to your custom questions in several ways, such as with a personalized video.
Can I add my own questions to an assessment?
Yes! Custom questions are great for testing candidates in your own unique way. We support the following question types: video, multiple-choice, coding, file upload, and essay. Besides adding your own custom questions, you can also create your own tests.
How do video questions work?
A video question is a specific type of custom question you can add to your assessment. Video questions let you create a question and have your candidates use their webcam to record a video response. This is an excellent way to see how a candidate would conduct themselves in a live interview, and is especially useful for sales and hospitality roles. Some good examples of things to ask for video questions would be "Why do you want to work for our company?" or "Try to sell me an item you have on your desk right now." You can learn more about video questions here.
Can you explain how the other custom question types work?
Besides video questions, you can also add the following types of custom questions: multiple-choice, coding, file upload, and essay. Multiple-choice lets your candidates choose from a list of answers that you provide, coding lets you create a coding problem for them to solve, file upload allows your candidates to upload a file that you request (such as a resume or portfolio), and essay allows an open-ended text response to your question. You can learn more about different custom question types here.
