There is a strong positive correlation between self-awareness of leaders, their authentic behaviours and, consequently, their leadership effectiveness. - PRATAP NAMBIAR, FOR THE STRAITS TIMES
Becoming a better leader starts with self-awareness.
Every leader leans towards certain basic tendencies. These tendencies have both their strengths and limitations.
Leaders will have a natural tendency to gravitate towards one of these two sides: the tendency to care, or the tendency to challenge. This is often seen as an "either-or" scenario. But to lead effectively means to find the right balance between the two.
Feedback is key to gaining self awareness.
The Boss Type Test is a short quiz to help you uncover your leadership tendencies.
After getting feedback on your tendencies as a leader, you can then determine what you need to do to achieve the and knowing what next steps to take to balance caring and challenging. We call this balance Relational Leadership.
