You might be surprised to learn your leadership style is largely dependent on your personality traits. The way you respond to stressful situations says a lot about the kind of leader you are, as well as the way factors like patience and impulsiveness affect your behavior.
The primary leadership styles are autocratic, authoritative, pacesetting, democratic, coaching, affiliative and laissez-faire. It’s important to educate yourself on each type and then take a look at yourself and your values.
What are your strengths and weaknesses? How do others view you? Determining your leadership style is a big step in improving your professional self.
