Ask yourself: Are you a good leader? Are you a good teammate? Would your teammates evaluate you the same way you evaluate yourself? Are you sure?
Below is a self-audit. For each of the following statements, apply the number of the answer that fits best.
1 = Always
2 = Frequently
3 = Occasionally
4 = Never
