In my work with leaders around the world I have come to these conclusions:
Leadership is very subjective. People’s ideas about, and definitions of, leadership differ significantly. What people want and expect from a leader also varies widely.
A ‘best’ leadership style doesn’t exist. Leaders with very different personalities, styles and behavioral patterns can be successful. ‘Best’ often depends on the situation, expectations, and needs of followers—and how well the leader’s strengths and weaknesses meet those parameters.
All leaders can benefit from being more self-aware. Many leaders don’t know what makes them successful, what’s derailing them, what they truly value, or how to improve. The oracle at Delphi said it best: “Before you can lead others, you must first lead yourself, and before you can lead yourself, you must know yourself.”
