Quiz: Would You Make a Better Boss Than Your Boss?

leadership quizI have a confession: I've had moments where I thought, "If I were the boss, I would do that differently." (Sorry boss, it's not personal, I swear.)

Everyone has silently second-guessed a boss's decision at sometime or another. But would you actually make a good leader, or are you just fooling yourself?

We came up with a quiz couched in the latest research to test your leadership mettle. If you pass with flying colors, congratulations—you should ask for a promotion! But if you don't, we've included advice on how to take your management skills to the next level, and along the way, make your team members like you a whole lot more.

Maybe you could send this to your boss and compare scores! Actually, don't do that—unless you're confident she would beat you.

      I’ve thought on many occasions that I would make a better boss than my boss. But I think it’s kind of like parenting. Most people believe they are good parents (or will be in the future) and a lot of people disagree with how others raise their kids and think of how they would do it better.

      I’m an extrovert and also an experienced clinical interviewer. The idea that outgoing people are less likely to listen is crazy. You could conversely argue that introverts might not share their disagreements and give subordinates the impression they agree when they don’t.
