Primal Leadersip



I have developed a leadership workshop, which includes Primal Leadership (Goleman).  I wonderd if anyone knew of a self analysis tool that I could use during the workshop, to identify the delegates preferred Primal Leadership style?

I have tried the Hay Group - but to no avail.

Your help and advice is very much appreciated.

  1. Primal Leadership v Neuroleadership

    Hi Paula,

    I was intrigued by your posting as I had not come across Primal Leadership before.  So I looked it up and read Goleman’s HBR article.  While I can’t give you an easy answer to your question, it struck me that there are strong links with neuroleadership and that this is a field that is growing like topsy in terms of resources!  You might find David Rock’s SCARF model interesting and there is a short self-assessment questionnaire linked to this here .  The other resource that sprang to mind was Seligman’s Learned Optimism.  This book contains a questionnaire to help understand levels of optimism/pessimism.  There is also a version of the questionnaire here  Sorry neither of these is directly linked to Goleman’s primal leadership, but if you want to have a chat about either of them, by all means just drop me a line at [email protected]

  2. Thanks

    Hi Jane

    Thanks for the information.  I will certainly have a look.
