The New Advantage for Women in Leadership





A Self-Assessment

This survey will give you a sense of which of the dilemmas you have mastered and which ones might challenge you most. Ask yourself, to what extent do I agree with each statement? Mark the corresponding number and give yourself an average score. Be sure to actually mark up your survey so you can revisit it later. You'll receive a copy of your answers automatically via email. Check in again every six to eight weeks. Is your score improving?
