Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire

by Bernard M. Bass & Bruce J. Avolio
The benchmark measure of transformational leadership

The Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire measures a broad range of leadership types from passive leaders, to leaders who give contingent rewards to followers, to leaders who transform their followers into becoming leaders themselves. The MLQ identifies the characteristics of a transformational leader and helps individuals discover how they measure up in their own eyes and in the eyes of those with whom they work. Success can be measured through a retesting program to track changes in leadership style. The program described in the MLQ Trainer's Guide provides a solid base for leadership training.

To deal with the number of assignment tasks they seek help from the online assignment writing services. But as there are many assignment panels in the market they do not get the best nursing assignment, expert.
