Topic time estimate: 3 Minutes
When we talk about leadership styles, we promote that:
A good situational leader will find him- or herself switching instinctively between styles according to the people, environment, skill levels and work they are dealing with. It’s a bit like a golfer choosing the right club.
If you are working in hospitality and customer service with an experienced, extroverted team on high rotation you probably best exhibit a gorilla-like leadership.
If you have identified yourself to be comfortable as an ant leader, you are probably experiencing a stretch. A constant stretch can demand lots of energy and can cause stress. The longer and the more you are required to adapt your natural leadership style to your situation, the more you will be required to balance and recharge. For example, finding ways within your organisation, role, or leisure time to be yourself, helps build resilience and strength to avoid frustration.
