LEAD4QLD leadership assessment

Complete the LEAD4QLD leadership assessment to understand your capabilities and identify the development areas required to succeed as a leader in the Queensland Government.

Receive a tailored leadership insights report from recruitment agency, Hudson, to help plan your leadership development journey. See LEAD4QLD (PDF, 1.4 MB) for more.

The assessment takes up to 7 hours to complete. A Hudson concierge will guide you through the process and book you into your assessment activities.

If you cannot make a scheduled activity, contact your concierge to arrange another time. If you give less than 24 hours’ notice, Hudson may charge your agency a fee. They’ll consider any extenuating circumstances (e.g. significant personal or medical event) before charging the fee.

Your personal information and results will inform development and talent management initiatives at an individual, agency and sector level. Queensland Government Chief Executives, HR managers and their delegates, and a restricted number of employees from Hudson and the PSC will have access to your results.

Assessment activities

You’ll complete several assessments to demonstrate your knowledge, skills and attributes against your leadership stream. See Leadership competencies for Queensland for more about leadership streams.

The assessments will be online and in-person:

  • Online: personality and work style assessments, problem solving assessment, demographic and experience survey, 180-degree feedback assessment.
  • In-person: interactive engagement, structured conversation, coaching session.

The assessments capture insights about you in your role at a point in time.

Coaching session

After your assessments, you’ll have a coaching session with a qualified psychologist to discuss your results, discover new insights and establish development goals.

Your coach will give you a tailored leadership insights report. You can use this to guide you in your development conversations with your supervisor.

Insights report

Use your insights report to inform your leadership goals and development actions. Discuss these with your supervisor and include them in your Performance and development agreement.

See Leadership courses for government employees for programs you can access as part of your leadership development journey.
