Bill Withers, a leadership specialist says, “Leaders get people to do what they ordinarily would not do.” How they accomplish this differs from person to person. Could you describe your own leadership style? Do you know why it is (or isn’t) effective? It’s amazing to me the number of managers/leaders who have little understanding of their own leadership style and its impact on others. If this resonates with you, I suggest you consider doing the following:
- A behavioral profile on yourself to see and understand your behavioral style (first one is free).
- Following step 1, read a piece on the pluses and minuses of your leadership style (I will send this to you).
- Do a creative planning session (we will be happy to facilitate this for you) with your team to explore this subject in more detail.
