____ 1. I write people's
job descriptions. I hire people to perform specific jobs.
____ 2. I help others to
make decisions for themselves.

their innovative ideas. I give credit to feelings and intuition. I realize
that when workers are involved in making changes, they are more likely
to go along with these changes.
____ 4. I realize that mistakes
happen, and I help others learn from their mistakes.
____ 5. I involve others
in solving problems and making decisions. By problem solving together
I get more valuble perspectives and ideas. This also helps to develop
the problem solving skills of other employees.
____ 6. I decide the goals
of our company and let everyone know these goals at our meetings. I
assign specific tasks to people so that they can best help me in achieving

beings have unlimited potential to grow, develop and learn. I think
it's great if people can perform more than one job in the company.

I try not to tell them what to do and how to do it. I know that the
workers are the experts on the work they do. I respect them for knowing
more about their jobs than I do.
____ 9. I believe that my
job is to make sure my company makes a lot of money. That goal is above
all others. Sure I feel bad if I have to lay off workers, but that's
life in the real world.
____ 10. The customers are
important. I believe that when they have ideas on how we could improve
things, we need to listen.
____ 11. I explain processes
to people so that they are able to make decisions themselves. I believe
the workers need to understand the whole picture.
____ 12. I know the process
and I oversee others as they carry out the process. They do not need
to know about other jobs in the department or company.
____ 13. People see me as
the authority. When they don't understand an aspect of their job, they
ask me usually more often than they ask anyone else.
