With all the resources out there for leaders of teams, have you found one that will help you work with ALL the different types of leaders that may emerge? Because, let’s face it, not all leaders are equal. Not all leaders are the same. So, as a leader of different personalities, how can you best serve your team?
One of the things I have done before is to find out what my leaders’ Love Languages are… but this isn’t all that helpful when actually mentoring people (although it is good for coming up with incentives), and I was often coming up with situations where I was coming up with all these ideas, doing all these courses, and making big future plans, and I could see that my team didn’t really get what my vision was, which frustrated me and, I think, made them feel a bit overwhelmed with everything I was trying to implement.
So I bought a book – Strengthfinder 2.0. And that changed everything for me.
