We just wrapped up our Next-Level Leadership Retreat here in Nashville and we did some crazy, fun exercises with the leaders.
One of the things I wanted to do was help them to see what styles worked, and what styles didn’t.
We broke everyone up into teams, and then just “randomly” (wink wink) assigned a specific style leader to each of the teams.
Of course, my team had a little fun setting this activity up because roles had to be reversed. We knew the personality styles of the leaders in the room, and we chose roles for them that would go against their normal style of leading.
We knew these leaders would have difficulty with the leadership roles that we gave them. It was the perfect setup!
The 3 types of leaderships that we set up:
The Democratic Leader
The Absent Leader
The Democratic Leader – Tax the collective intelligence, see what kind of information your team has. Get input,
