An obligatory component is the availability of an objective system for assessing the level of manifestation and dynamics of leadership qualities. In the modern literature there are a number of psychological tests and complex methods of assessment of leadership qualities. However, the authors are convinced that in each case (meaning the specialty and specialization) changes as the list of the most important leadership qualities as the methods and procedures for their evaluation. The results of a sociological survey conducted to form a list of leadership qualities of future specialists in the structures of moral and psychological support of the AFU are presented. The authors developed and conducted training aimed at the formation of certain qualities. The training involves the use of various methods to assess the level of emergence of leadership qualities. The results of the training allowed to make a comparative analysis of such assessment methods as: psychological tests, sociomeria, case-study, expert assessment. The results of pedagogical observation of cadets during the training confirmed the fact that the methods of assessing leadership qualities cannot be the same in different conditions.
