RESULTS

Mostly As: Whoa. You’re a leader alright – but maybe a little OVER-assertive. Take your hands off the reins once in a while, will you? Your friends and colleagues might appreciate a less rigid approach. Although, that said, we bet you’re used to winning and getting results.

Mostly Bs: You’re the perfect kind of natural-born leader – you know when you direct people, but you can also gauge when to leave them alone. Good on you. Lead those teams!

Mostly Cs: Don’t you ever tire of being called a pushover? Come on, stand up for yourself once in a while. Try organising a night out this weekend – you might be surprised by liking being in charge.

Are you the ring-leader in your team at work, or are you the boss in your group of friends? Then why not head up a team in Oxfam’s sponsored walk on Mourne Mountain?
