There are many books published about leadership development. Each book has a different language, model, methodology or approach for being the, “best leader”. The challenge is that there is not a single leadership style that works for every person and for every situation. Your leadership style depends on your personal story and life events. The best leadership style can’t be found in a book because it starts with personal exploration and building self-awareness.
Questions to ask yourself…
- What is the story of your career and life? How has your circumstances and life events impacted who you are as a leader today?
- Do your actions at work align with who you are outside of work? Are you leading authentically?
- Are you developing yourself as a leader? Connecting with other industry leaders outside of your organization?
Only you can define the best leadership style for you.
