We are positively psyched to launch the new mindgarden.com! This new website features many improvements. To help our returning customers transition to our new site, here’s a guide to our new features and the changes you will notice.
Are you a returning MLQ customer? Jump to MLQ News.
The new "Your Role" page helps you start your product selection process by providing guides specifically designed for your interests. Choose from the following roles: Professor, Business Consultant, Individual, Counselor, HR Manager, Student Researcher, Established Researcher, and Repeat Customer. These guides address common questions pertaining to each role and include respective bestsellers and other helpful information.
To improve clarity and efficiency, we’ve developed two new Licenses to replace the License to Reproduce/Administer (as seen on our former website version).
The License to Reproduce allows you to conduct a survey via paper and pencil. This product, delivered to you as a PDF download, includes permission to print and use the instrument and scoring key. You administer and score the instrument yourself.
The Remote Online Survey License allows you to retype and reformat a survey for online administration via a non-Mind Garden system (eg. PsychData). This product, also delivered to you as a PDF download, includes permission to use the instrument and scoring key. With your purchase, you will complete a Remote Online Use Application (included in order) and agree to the Mind Garden Online Use Policy. You do not have legal permission to administer the survey online until your Remote Online Use Application is approved by Mind Garden.
Delivery Options have changed!
In the interest of being “green”, we no longer offer print and ship copies of licenses. You can download your PDF licenses and print your own copies.
We’ve added a new report product type, the Report About Me, to allow easier self-assessment and reporting. We eliminated the multi-step setup process of setting up the campaign and now streamline you directly into your assessment and your report. Transform™ will connect your Report About Me to the “Sent To” email you provide at checkout.
The content you get with your Report About Me is identical to the content you get with an Individual Report. The only difference is the process required to set up the survey and access your report.
To generate reports for other people, purchase one or more Individual Reports.
If you want to customize, translate, alter, or publish a survey, you now fill out your respective application or request through Transform™. All applications and request forms can be found on the Mind Garden Forms page.
Transform™ functionality remains unchanged. Your Transform™ personal “homepage” and “menu” is now “Your Portfolio”.
The Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire reports have undergone some important changes. The information below was released in an email to all past MLQ customers a couple weeks ago.
The name of the report is now the MLQ II 360 Leader’s Report (MLQMG2). The scale names will change to new, user-friendly terminology, and the abbreviated original terms will be displayed. The price is unchanged at $100 per leader.
If you currently have licenses for the MLQ 360 Leader’s Report (MLQMG), you will see the updated scale names in the reports you generate. The general format, pagination and data for the report will not change.
The scale names will change to new, user-friendly terminology, and the abbreviated original scale names will be displayed.
If you currently have licenses for the MLQ Actual/Ought Report (MLQAOW) you will see the updated scale names in the reports you generate. The general format, pagination and data for the report will not change.
At an introductory price of only $125 per leader, the MLQ 360 Suite includes the MLQ II 360 Leader’s Report, the MLQ Executive Summary, and the MLQ Leader’s Workbook (Custom). The MLQ Executive Summary provides a 6-page overview of self and rater ratings along with benchmarks advising the optimal levels for each leadership style.
Know that if you have existing licenses for reports, the most important change you’ll see is the new, user-friendly scale names.
When you order reports, let us know if you want the same report (MLQMG), the new report (MLQMG2), or the MLQ 360 Suite (MLQMG2S). The purchase via the website shopping cart will be limited to the new MLQ II 360 Leader’s Report and the MLQ 360 Suite.
If you currently use your own local norms, you may wish to continue ordering the MLQ 360 Leader’s Report (MLQMG). If you want to purchase the MLQ 360 Suite and you currently use your own norms, you will lose your existing normative data. If you do not use norms for your population, we suggest you purchase the new MLQ II 360 Leader’s Report (MLQMG2).
