Friday Reflection: What Kind of Leader are You?

Leadership sometimes becomes a reflex, rather than a thoughtful process.  Take time to reflect on what leadership style* you use the most and when do you use them.  Is it:

  • Coercive: demands compliance-- Do what I tell you
  • Authoritative: mobilizes people toward a vision-- Come with me
  • Affiliative: creates harmony and builds emotional bonds-- People come first
  • Democratic: forges consensus through participation-- What do you think
  • Pace-setting: sets high standards for performance-- do as I do, now
  • Coaching: develops people for the future-- Try this

* Take from Michael Fullan's "Leading During Change."

If you see over dependence on any one style, explore how you can increase your skill in using another. 

Think of a situation and write a script on how you could provide direction using coaching as opposed to coercive, for example. 

Reflect on what style would work best in what situations. 

Enjoy your weekend!
