Welcome to the Strategic Leadership Type Indicator (SLTi) 

The SLTI assessment asks managers to make decisions about the best leadership approach to use in 16 cases. Participants receive a personal profile that shows the degree to which they appropriately match coaching, teaching, relating or delegating strategies with the capabilities and motivation of their direct reports. Supervisors and managers can then perfect these basic, day-to-day leadership methods to more effectively train, coach and empower direct reports through rapidly changing responsibilities and challenges.


You will be asked to respond to a total of 16 cases. For each case, read the descriptions of possible responses and decide how well you think each response would work using the rating scale below. You need to provide a rating for all four answers to each case. Make sure you rate each response based on its own merit, not in relation to the other responses. More than one answer can receive the same rating.
