Taking a leadership style quiz won’t make you a great leader, but it will give you some of the insights you need to start developing your leadership into something greater than it already is.
We all lead with style. For some of us, our leadership style is sort of like bellbottom jeans or parachute pants – a bit dated. We need a new wardrobe. Many of us, on the other hand, pay close attention to the trends that drive successful leadership in our competitive economy. Regardless, we all need to take an honest look in the mirror from time to time.
Some things never go out of style, but great leaders recognize that the world around them never stays the same. So they take core, foundational leadership qualities and adapt to them to a style that fits their personality and the times of the world in which we all live.
What type of world is that? Well, we live in a world that’s far more transparent than ever and that demands far more of its leaders. Followers expect openness, honesty, involvement, engagement … and, yes … love. They want to be in the know, even as they expect confident, smart direction.
Delivering on these expectations isn’t easy. That’s why it’s important to understand how we lead so we can build on our strengths and work on our weaknesses.
