Not everybody was meant to be a good people leader. However, that doesn’t mean a person is unable to be a successful manager or leader. Instead, it’s important for organizations to explore validated assessment methods to determine what leadership style employees will display.
Perhaps one employee has a strong analytical leadership style and relies heavily on numbers and information, while another is focused on ideas and strategic problem-solving. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with either style as long as they are identified and managed accordingly.
Last month we launched our new Leader Focus Report, which aims to simplify and provide insight into six leadership dimensions that influence leadership style and effectiveness. In this video, our CEO, Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, discusses these dimensions and how they determine what a leader will focus on and how he or she will define success.
