  • 🆘 Help! My boss thinks his leadership style is the only one that works 🆘

    Do you recognize this?
    ⭕ You have read a lot about authentic leadership, and you are convinced this is the way to go
    ⭕ You know your preferred leadership style. Even better, it works since your team is engaged and performs well, and you are their hero 🦸‍♀️

    BUT… you have the nagging feeling your boss is not satisfied with how you manage your team. Worse, they impose their leadership style on you, intending to make you a better leader. "I am successful, so be like me, and you'll also be a good leader."
    Or for the Insights lovers: 'Red is the only color leading to success.'

    Big dilemma! 🤷‍♂️ Do you stick to your style, or do you adapt and play the role your boss wants you to play?

    Let's be clear:
    👨‍🏫 Success is not the result of one best leadership style
    👨‍🏫 Different leadership styles can bring success
    👨‍🏫 Diversity of leadership styles is key
    👨‍🏫 Make sure you know how you prefer to lead your team
    👨‍🏫 Stay true to yourself and be proud of your leadership style
    👨‍🏫 Show others (+ your boss) that your style also leads to success
