Leadership StyleLeaders have to make tough decisions and with tough decisions comes ramifications where leaders have to discern how these ramifications influences their leadership style. “Leadership style is the manner and approach of providing direction, implementing plans, and motivating people” stated by Donald Clark (2015). Leadership style differs from individual to individual and some individuals lead using a combination of styles to successfully lead and inspire others. “According to the International Journal of Cross-Cultural Management, leadershiptraits result partly from cultural norms and partly from the needs of the leadership job” states Tara Duggan (n.d.). Due to different personalities, business cultures and industries it is imperative for leaders to identify what their leadership style actually is, any potential blind spots to using their leadership style and which environments will their style thrive or struggle in. According to Karen Rosa West, PhD. (2015), there are eight archetypes of leadership-Collaborator, Energizer, Pilot, Provider, Harmonizer, Forecaster, Producer and Composer. This paper will identify my go-to leadership style and supplemental leadership style(s) I implement in leading. This paper will also evaluate the blind spots and environments that my leadership style thrives in as well as struggle in, and list SMART goals that I can focus on for self-improvement.
