Personality Types of a Leader

  1. 1. PERSONALITY TYPES OF A LEADER Jan Vincent M. Sabroso III-BLIS
  2. 2. A LEADER HAS GOT MULTIDIMENSIONAL TRAITS IN HIM WHICH MAKES HIM APPEALING AND EFFECTIVE IN BEHAVIOUR.
  3. 3. PHYSICAL APPEARANCE A leader must have a pleasing appearance. Physique and health are very important for a good leader.
  4. 4. VISION AND FORESIGHT A leader cannot maintain influence unless he exhibits that he is forward looking. He has to visualize situations and thereby has to frame logical programmes.
  5. 5. INTELLIGENCE A leader should be intelligent enough to examine problems and difficult situations.
  6. 6. COMMUNICATIVE SKILLS A leader must be able to communicate the policies and procedures clearly, precisely and effectively. This can be helpful in persuasion and stimulation.
  7. 7. OBJECTIVE A leader has to be having a fair outlook which is free from bias and which does not reflects his willingness towards a particular individual.
  8. 8. KNOWLEDGE OF WORK A leader should be very precisely knowing the nature of work of his subordinates because it is then he can win the trust and confidence of his subordinates.
  9. 9. SENSE OF RESPONSIBILITY Responsibility and accountability towards an individual’s work is very important to bring a sense of influence. A leader must have a sense of responsibility towards organizational goals because only then he can get maximum of capabilities exploited in a real sense.
  10. 10. SELF-CONFIDENCE AND WILL-POWER Confidence in himself is important to earn the confidence of the subordinates. He should be trustworthy and should handle the situations with full will power.
  11. 11. HUMANIST This trait to be present in a leader is essential because he deals with human beings and is in personal contact with them. He has to handle the personal problems of his subordinates with great care and attention.
  12. 12. EMPATHY It is an old adage “Stepping into the shoes of others”. This is very important because fair judgement and objectivity comes only then. A leader should understand the problems and complaints of employees and should also have a complete view of the needs and aspirations of the employees.
  13. 13. LEADERSHIP STYLES Jan Vincent M. Sabroso III-BLIS
  14. 14. AUTOCRATIC LEADERSHIP where leaders have a lot of power over their people. Staff and team members have little opportunity to make suggestions, even if these would be in the team's or the organization's best interest.
  15. 15. BUREAUCRATIC LEADERSHIP Bureaucratic leaders work "by the book." They follow rules rigorously, and ensure that their people follow procedures precisely.
  16. 16. DEMOCRATIC/PARTICIPATIVE LEADERSHIP Democratic leaders make the final decisions, but they include team members in the decision-making process. They encourage creativity, and team members are often highly engaged in projects and decisions.
  17. 17. LAISSEZ-FAIRE LEADERSHIP This French phrase means "leave it be," and it describes leaders who allow their people to work on their own. This type of leadership can also occur naturally, when managers don't have sufficient control over their work and their people.
  18. 18. LAISSEZ-FAIRE LEADERSHIP Laissez-faire leaders may give their teams complete freedom to do their work and set their own deadlines. They provide  team support with resources and advice, if needed, but otherwise don't get involved.
  19. 19. PEOPLE-ORIENTED/RELATIONSORIENTED LEADERSHIP With people-oriented leadership, leaders are totally focused on organizing, supporting, and developing the people on their teams. This is a participatory style and tends to encourage good teamwork and creative collaboration. This is the opposite of task-oriented leadership.
  20. 20. TRANSACTIONAL LEADERSHIP This leadership style starts with the idea that team members agree to obey their leader when they accept a job. The "transaction" usually involves the organization paying team members in return for their effort and compliance. The leader has a right to "punish" team members if their work doesn't meet an appropriate standard
  21. 21. TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERSHIP As we discussed earlier in this article, transformation leadership is often the best leadership style to use in business situations. Transformational leaders are inspiring because they expect the best from everyone on their team as well as themselves. This leads to high productivity and engagement from everyone in their team.
