What is leadership? What makes a great leader? I’ve been interested in leadership for a long time. As the oldest of 5 children, I got lots of hands on experience as I grew up–often in how NOT to lead.
I just got done reading a great article by Robyn Benincasa called “6 Leadership Styles and When You Should Use Them.” You may find the article here.
I love her recipe for successful long-term leadership of any team!
2 cups Authoritative Leadership
1 cup each Democratic, Coaching, and Affiliative Leadership
dash Pacesetting and Coercive Leadership “to taste”
Of course, you’ll have to read her article to find out what each of these means. Have fun!
