Balance what your heart says and expectations of your subordinates
Being a leader is not easy. Balancing your own motivations and ways of working with that of a diverse team is a challenging task. This week we look at heart-centred leaders – types 2, 3 and 4 who lead based on their need for validation from others.
To achieve this, Type 2 Helpers often wish be of help in everything under their charge to ensure things turn out well. Type 3 Achievers leaders set the tone for their team with a constant no nonsense mood to ensure things are in tip top standard, while Type 4 Individualists tries to adapt and maneuver to maximize their feelings of validation.
