Globe Business Quiz
Gauging one’s leadership trait
By Earl D.C. Bracamonte
Are you an Abraham Lincoln, a Napoleon Bonaparte, a Cleopatra or a Jose Rizal to your employees? Businessmen can now find out as Globe Telecoms has launched an on-line test, the Globe Business Leader Quiz, to help entrepreneurs identify what kind of leader they are and give suggestions on how to harness their unique qualities to run their respective enterprises even better.
By just logging on to http://business.globe.com.ph/leader and answering the seven-item quiz, business owners could identify their leadership style. The on-line test gives an assessment as to whether the respondent is authoritarian, intolerant of incompetence, is intimidating, or an inspirational leader.
“There are no wrong answers to the Globe Business Leader Quiz. The results merely show what particular qualities of a business leader one possesses. There are, however, advantages and disadvantages to these traits when running a business venture.
“The quiz results then suggest how a business leader should tone down certain qualities and nurture good traits in order to maximize his leadership abilities. Best of all, it’s a fun and entertaining way to learn and improve oneself,” said Manny Aligada, head of Globe Business’ corporate & SME segments.
Aligada added that Globe Business offers a range of customized products and services that may be mixed and matched to suit a specific leadership style.
“Globe Business products and services are flexible and comprehensive enough to allow customization. They may be tailored to be the right fit not only to the needs, requirements and budget of a particular undertaking, but also to fit the preferred leadership style of the entrepreneur concerned.
“For example, an entrepreneur who functions better when mobile and conducting transactions away from the office might feel cranky when boxed inside office confines. He may best benefit from running the office through mobile phones, on-line video conferencing, chat and/or email.
“Or an entrepreneur might have tons of charisma that leaves employees spellbound but who might not be used to communication ideas and instructions. So maybe that type can start practicing communication skills by using an unlimited voice call subscription or chat,” Aligada explained.
Before viewing the results of the quiz, a very witty and entertaining video is shown to illustrate in a fun way the various types of leaders and how Globe Business can work for them.
