Instruments that measure aspects of leadership, power, personality, conflict, and organizational climate are discussed. An overview of each instrument is provided as well as data on the type of test, time to complete, cost, and purchasing information. While objective tests such as these are useful in assessing individual suitability for management positions, we advise that they be used prudently and judiciously. © Williams & Wilkins 1996.
