Be an involved leader, not a controlling authoritarian
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 body-centred leaders – types 8, 9 and 1 who pride themselves as being involved, and in control of their environment and team.
As their base emotion is anger, it influences their actions in aims of taking control and to always be present with their team. When an external force messes with them and they lose control, or if someone interferes with their presence within the team, they can be angered. These leaders take pride in their work and use their gut to influence their decision making.
Type 1 Perfectionist leaders work hard with their team and are dependable at all times. They set high expectations not just for others but for themselves as well which could lead them to be self critical and rigid in their ways.
Type 8 Challenging leaders are like guardians where they protect their team with passion and fairness. They are not afraid in holding their ground of what they believe is truth. Their defensive instincts are also attributed to the fact that they fear vulnerability.
Type 9 Peacemaking leaders prioritize maintaining peace and harmony within their teams and puts others before themselves. As such, they can become indecisive when needing to make difficult decisions as they know that not everyone will be happy. Nonetheless, this open-minded and caring nature that holds them back in difficult decisions, makes them excellent mediators in conflict.
