Explanation: The NYLI was designed to estimate organizational leadership aptitude in 6- to 18-year olds. The goal is to identify leadership giftedness for the purpose of offering accelerated training and increase long term effectiveness. Adults respond to questions about the student. This is not for students to take on themselves. The NYLI is used as part of LeadNow and LeadWell training program applications. It should only take 5 minutes to complete.
Directions: Results of this assessment will be available as soon as you submit the form and then will be sent to the email addresses you enter. If you are submitting this for a student who is applying for a KidLead/LeadYoung training program, make sure you include the trainer’s e-mail and host organization name.
The NYLI results depend on the responder’s experience in observing the student in social settings. There are 30, multiple-choice questions. All must be answered to submit the survey. There are no right or wrong, good or bad answers. Mark the response that seems to best reflect how you have observed the student. First responses are usually best. If you do not think you can adequately answer a question, mark “Unsure.” KidLead Inc. retains this data for its ongoing research on leadership development, but will not share personal info with others. This is a secure form.
There are a few open-ended questions at the end of this form. You only need to answer these if it is part of a training program application.
