Flexible
  • Flexible leaders are, as the name suggests, more versatile than other types of leaders 
  • Comfortable with uncertainty, open-minded in adapting to circumstances, 
  • And willing to involve a variety of people in the decision making. They are fairly cautious when it comes to making decisions.
  • The problem with flexible leaders is that they can become too open-minded
  • Looking at all the potential issues, solutions, and outcomes and often running into analysis paralysis.
  • Setting up deadlines and moving one step at a time can help facilitate such a mental model

Catalyst
  • The catalyst is an excellent person to lead the work of groups, whether making decisions or implementing them.
  •  They are quite balanced and neutral in their thought process. 
  • The more extreme the necessary decision, the more they can naturally resist inherent biases.
  • That said, being middle of the road can yield only average results. 
  • To avoid that, a catalyst should watch for circumstances that require high-stakes decisions 
  • And realize that they may need a different type of decision process, like having a team look at the situation and suggest potential approaches.

The work-life balance

The work-life balance broadly refers to the need for more leisure, family time or self-care. Critics of the term think it creates an artificial separation between work and life. Others feel the equation of work on the one side and life on the other is not a balance at all.

In response, the idea of work-life integration is becoming more popular.

Awkward silence is a tool for emotional intelligence

The rule of awkward silence: When you are faced with a challenging question, instead of immediately attempting an answer, take your time - about 15 seconds or longer - to think deeply before you share your thoughts.

While it may feel awkward at first, it is an excellent way to build emotional intelligence - the ability to identify, understand, and manage emotions.

  • What's really going on?
  • What's the source of your flightiness or anxiety?
  • What do you need to be working on in your life?
