As a leader, it's important to understand your leadership style.
Because the more you understand about what drives you, what you care about, your decision-making process - the more effective you can be as a leader. This knowledge allows you to connect with others and gain the support needed from your employees in order for your vision of your business to be achieved.
As this article states: "In a time of wrenching disruptions and exhilarating advances, of unrelenting turmoil and unlimited promise, there have never been more roads to success — or more opportunities to fail."
We all want to be part of a great success story. To run, start, or play a senior role in a company that wins big or changes the course of its industry. To launch a brand that dazzles customers and dominates its markets. To be the kind of executive or entrepreneur who creates jobs, generates wealth, and builds an organization bursting with energy and creativity. Which means that all of us, no matter where we are in our career, have to wrestle with the big questions of leadership. If we hope to succeed, we need to understand how we lead.
