🆘 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
