Leadership Styles and Tendencies
Every leader has a different leadership style. Interacting with people with a similar style is easy. The tricky part is communicating with those whose style differs – maybe even the polar opposite of your own! In today’s diverse corporate climate flexibility is king.
Gone are the days of “My way or the highway!” To get things done with and through others, leaders need to understand their own styles and tendencies, and recognise that others’ styles and tendencies may be vastly different from their own. The diversity in today’s workforce, in both thought and action, requires leaders to be more aware and more accepting and cooperative with others.
In this course, leaders analyse four different styles of communicating with others. You explore the different characteristics of each style and determine which one is most like your own. You will focus on accepting a variety of styles to sustain cooperative, inclusive, long-term relationships.
