Personal Leadership: Leadership Styles & Tendencies

In this workshop, we analyze four leadership styles, or styles of interacting with others. We examine the characteristics of each style and take an assessment to determine our own leadership style. We focus on working with others across leadership styles to sustain motivating, successful relationships, and better results in our careers. The most important element of working across different leadership styles is our flexibility; our willingness and ability to see things from the other person’s point of view.

Course Overview

What You’ll Learn

Why you want to learn it

We live and work with people who have a variety of styles. As much as we might like to, we can’t guarantee that everyone in our professional life is going to have our same style of approaching work, solving problems, and interacting with others. At times, we find ourselves working with individuals whose styles are nearly the opposite of our own. The ability to be flexible is the key to utilizing our understanding of the four leadership styles.
