Leader Behavior Description Questionnaire (LBDQ)

The Leader Behavior Description Questionnaire (LBDQ) was developed by the staff of the Personnel Research Board, The Ohio State University, as one project of the Ohio State Leadership Studies, directed by Dr. Carroll L. Shartle.

There is no cost and no need to request permission to use the LBDQ forms provided via this website.

The LBDQ provides a technique whereby group members may describe the behavior of the leader, or leaders, in any type of group or organization, provided the followers have had an opportunity to observe the leader in action as a leader of their group. Use of the following LBDQ components should be for research purposes only and no monetary gain should be realized from their use.
