Why it is important to understand your leadership style

Self-awareness or understanding oneself is the foundation of a good leader and leads to a sense of what leadership style works best for you and your team and recognizing that you can adopt different leadership styles in different circumstances. Leadership style isn’t static and understanding what different leadership styles are will equip you to assume the most appropriate leadership style for the right circumstances.

It is equally important to know what type of leader you are not and help you decide which organizations or team might be a better cultural fit.

You must play to the strengths of your leadership style to be a better leader. If you can better understand your leadership strengths and your weaknesses, you will continue to grow and succeed in your role as a leader. Certain common leadership traits like respect, empathy, authenticity and compassion towards peers, colleagues and employees will foster support and loyalty and further the objectives you have established a leader
