To determine the type of leader oneself is, an individual is able to follow a few models to help them figure that out. The Contingency Model, which was developed by Fiedler, uses one’s LPC, or Least-Preferred Coworker, to determine if he or she is a high or low LPC-leader. Low LPC-leaders are task-oriented leaders. High LPC-leaders are relationship-oriented leaders. The model uses a 1-7 scale based on characteristics of the LPC. After completing the scale, one must then use the situational favorableness model which identifies key situations and then one determines how they would act in each scenario. Once completed, a chart identified in the article will help identify the type of leader he or she is, whether it be task oriented or relationship oriented (Mindtools.com).
