What's your leadership style?
Whether you lead an organization, a team, or a family, you have a dominant style of leadership.
One of the behavioral assessments I use with my clients, The Birkman Method, identifies three leadership styles and helps participants maximize their leadership by understanding the traits, tendencies and pitfalls of their most dominant leadership style. I admit my definitions below are cursory, but....
DELEGATIVE: uses plans, strategies, resources. "Here are the tools you need to achieve results."
KNOWLEDGE SPECIALIST: uses personal expertise. "Let me show you how to achieve results."
DIRECTIVE: uses action & urgency. "Follow me!"
Which one best describes your leadership style? (P.S. I am a Knowledge Specialist!)
