Leadership style is an important aspect of leadership performance. Knowing how you lead is critical to using your greatest strengths in leading a diverse workforce. Avoiding behaviors that negatively impact those whose styles are different from yours will help in relationship-building and productivity.
In this session, participants will learn the various styles that are common to any members of a team. They will be able to identify each style and self-select the style that most resembles the way they see themselves.
Upon learning the strengths and challenges of these styles, they will come to know how they impact their teams both positively and negatively in how they lead.
Having this knowledge helps to minimize conflict and reduce blind spots. Participants will walk away with greater insight into their behavior and what changes they may need to make to bring the best out of their people.
Why you should Attend
Anyone who leads diverse personalities on their team should attend this training. Most leaders aren’t fully aware of what their style is and how it impacts those they lead. They haven’t clearly defined for others how they operate nor for themselves. As a result, they take actions that work for and against them in building relationships, affecting morale, and impacting performance. Their style attributes may meld into styles similar to theirs, but they may find themselves on opposite ends of the spectrum with others. This can cause conflict and make leading different styles more difficult.

- Identifying leadership styles
