There are clear advantages to using certain styles of leadership over others. Our leadership products measure the most and least effective leadership behaviors to help leaders acknowledge and develop their leadership skills.
Not all leaders have good leadership skills. A leader is considered someone who commands or manages a group or organization. To display leadership, the leader must have the ability to articulate their personal vision, improve situations to get results, help their followers excel, and show commitment to their group. It is also important to identify how this leadership is accomplished – is the leader responding to the group only when they are directly asked to? Does the leader use rewards and punishment to manage the group or barter favors for progress? Or does the leader encourage the group to strive for their highest potential to proactively optimize the group’s development and innovation?
