Am I a good manager?
A 20-minute online questionnaire will help you assess your management skills. In particular, it will enable you to answer the following questions:
- Am I ready to manage a team?
- What are my management skills?
- In what type of company will my management style be most appreciated and valued?
- What style of team could I manage best?
- How can I improve my management skills?
Am I ready to manage a team?
The Assess Manager questionnaire offers you a unique managerial assessment experience: it provides you with a series of situations and questions lasting an average of 23 minutes. The situations and questions can be answered by anyone: with or without managerial responsibilities, in the private or public sector.
There are no wrong answers, but rather preferences that lead to 2 results:
- A very detailed personality report with useful indicators for producing a management report
- A management report to establish your management potential, with guidelines determining the managerial skills you have already developed, those you need to strengthen, and the environments that will be most favourable to you: company culture and team styles.
This will show you whether you are ready to manage a team. If you’re not recommended for the moment, you’ll know which areas to strengthen to prepare yourself. Thanks to this managerial assessment.
What are my management skills?
Depending on the management level you occupy or target, you need specific management skills. For example, a manager of managers has to take calm decisions from a distance, whereas an operational manager is involved in day-to-day operational decision-making on expert issues.
A manager of managers delegates a great deal to his or her managers, whereas an operational manager is more involved in organising and distributing missions and tasks, and following them up over a fairly short period of time.
So, managers of managers, operational managers, executives and cross-functional managers all have similar skills requirements, but the way in which they are expressed is different.
It is this subtlety that the MANAG-ER management test will help you to identify the level of responsibility that is most in line with your interpersonal skills and know-how built up over time.
In which type of company will my management style be most appreciated and valued?
Your management style – the way you interact with and empower your teams – is well suited to certain environments, and potentially less suited to others. So your management style speaks to the environment that is most favourable to you.
Is your management style paternalistic?
You’d prefer to work in a family business or with an immature team, for example.
We’ll give you all the guidance you need to make the most of your career, either by choosing a company and a team that suit your style, or by offering you training to develop new potential.
What style of team can I best manage?
The more in control you are, the less confidence you show in your team, the more suited it is to an immature team.
The more experienced and reliable your team, the more you need to develop a management style based on trust by developing strong delegation skills while giving meaning to the tasks delegated.
The skills you’ve already developed indicate the type of team you’ll be most effective with today, while also showing you where you need to improve if you want to progress.
How can I progress in management?
There are 3 ways to progress in management:
- People skills have an impact on know-how. Coaching on the areas for progress linked to your personality are the first key.
- Stress management
- Self-confidence, which influences confidence in others
- It’s a way of stimulating a certain dynamic in the team and understanding the relationship between results and relationships.
- It’s about how you motivate the team
- It shows how you can find other motivational levers
- Managerial skills are ways of doing things, which also rely on tools. Training is an excellent way of reinforcing certain skills. Sometimes coaching is essential to enable a skill to develop.
- Delegating requires trust, which coaching helps to build
- Delegating requires tools: training provides these.
- We are offering 2 books on management that cover the full range of managerial skills, with a mixed coaching approach and tools for a more training-oriented approach.
By taking the MANAG-ER management assessment test, you’ll get a better idea of your management skills, preferences and needs.
