Complete the following three assessments individually and then compare your scores with your group. Decide as a group if it is better to be relationship-motivated/concern for people or task-motivated/concern for the task. Is it better to be a transformational or transactional leader? Can a person be a transformational leader sometimes and a transactional leader other times? Is there a continuum for relationship-motivated and relationship-task or is it one or the other? The assessments are:
