Understanding Your Leadership Style
This course focuses understanding how to apply leadership for everyone. A leader in any position, whether a CEO or a temporary head of a small project, serves his or her co-workers and the project as a whole best by being aware of strengths, weaknesses, and proclivities that affect how one communicates and processes information. Learning your tendencies as a leader will not only make you more conscious of the way you communicate, but will also allow you to recognize the personality and communication styles of your staff as well.
There is a misconception among many people that a strong leader has to have certain characteristics, including being authoritative, decisive, and powerful, among a host of other strong adjectives. However, leadership is not just for authoritative people-in fact, many people are put off by authoritative leaders who push their own agenda. In many current corporate structures, almost anyone can emerge as a leader in a variety of functions, which means leadership roles aren’t out of reach for most personality types. When you understand your personality and individual leadership style, you can use that understanding to inform the way you lead others.
