Brian’s definition of leadership is: tailoring your message to meet the needs of others.
He also says that we are all born with a leadership style. There are 28 of them.
There are moments when 2 leaders are complimentary and other moments when there are conflicts. But there are ways that individuals can learn to get along.
It is very important to know how to communicate with each type of leaders. Bottom line, we all want to be valued.
When you have the ability to communicate well with each type of leader, you have to be careful, so you won’t get to be manipulating others.
It’s a positive experience that is going to benefit those involved.
Brian describes some leadership styles:
Leadership Mother Hen: passive, protective and does not take a lot of credit, but love to help others.
Leadership Shark: prime candidate for a heart attack at 35! They are hyper motivated. Always moving. Trying to find their next pray.
Leadership Rainbow Trout: the eternal optimists
Leadership Chameleon: change his colors to suit his environment.
Leadership is not necessarily active. It could be passive. Leaders can definitely lead by example.
Then, Brian goes into giving us the leadership map to become a leader:
- Understand yourself
- Have some confidence in what you are doing. Failure is part of the game.
- Learn from those around you, have mentors.
- Practice, keep trying and working and improving yourself.
Brian’s definition of success:
“The Kwan” (if you don’t know what it means, do some research about Jerry McGuire and Rod Tidwell!)
