Great leaders inspire people to do better and develop their skills because leaders with a great leadership style can make anyone appear more competent than they actually are, and that builds confidence within the individual.
However, leaders who do have poor methods can drag down an individual with an exceptional skill set or even the whole team.
Great leadership style is different from your own personality. It derives from the social markers that we express in the workplace.
The signals we send to others about our status fall into two categories: Power and Attractiveness.
Our default leadership style is called natural style. Whenever we are in neutral situations it is our selected option and we behave relatively powerful with it.
Natural style has five categories: powerful, lean powerful, blended, lean attractive, and attractive.
A blended style is best described as having "presence". It is rare because it involves an equal use of both power and attractiveness markers.
Leadership style cannot be fully separated from unconscious biases and discrimination.
However, we do not advise women and minorities to not be upset, to not disagree, and to not promote their achievements. Rather, to carefully select their social markers and develop a blended style that is suited to them.
The right assortment can allow you to show loyalty to the group you want to lead while still maintaining your uniqueness.
