Leadership Styles - Do you know yours?

My daughter brought home this quiz from one of her high school classes. I thought it was interestingly accurate. I totally pegged my husband before he got home. I am a Golden Retrivier and he is a Lion. Odd combination, but it works!

Take it and tell me what you think.

Please circle as many words in each column that best describe you.
