Leadership Styles

by | Nov 30, 2020


Leading the pack? Make sure you come with the right style.

For better or worse, people manage in different ways. To know what type of leader you want to be, it’s important to recognize what to avoid. 

According to the job resource site ladders.com, there are seven leadership styles to avoid. For example, the Hands-Off approach. Simply giving orders and then stepping back doesn’t encourage your employees to work hard. 

Even when all is going well, you should remain a presence in your team’s daily work life. Plus, be willing to get your hands dirty. Nothing brings a team together faster than a leader in the trenches with them. 

Next, the Absent Leader, one step further back than the Hands-Off Approach. Leaders who are absent don’t interact with employees in any meaningful way. They are usually detached from what is going on in their own company. Stepping back and allowing people to work is one thing. Not having any presence or communication is another.
