Today’s a continuation of yesterday’s discussion about personality traits of global social leaders which are commonly found when leaders participate in social networking for business support.
Your Personality as the Building Blocks of Leadership
As you consider your own unique leadership skills, consider the lessons that Ken Kille highlights in his book about global leadership. One of his major ideas is emphasized in his statement that:
“Personal characteristics can be thought of as the building blocks of a leadership style. The way that the characteristics interrelate established a certain mindset, which creates a tendency for a global leader to act in a particular manner. Thus, in order to capture a global leadership style, it is necessary to measure the personal characteristics and then contruct the overarching leadership style profile.” – Kent Kille
I wrote about the 6 main questions to ask yourself to examine your personal characteristics here, which Kille puts forward.
Once you determine your personal characteristics, Kille suggests that you can then figure out your inclinations when it comes to defining your leadership style.
3 Types of a Global Social Leader
For Kille, this is how he compares the 3 leadership styles.
|Characteristics||1. Managerial||2. Strategic||3. Visionary|
|Belief That Can Influence||Low||High||High|
|Need For Recognition||Low||Low||High|
|Need For Relationships||High||High||Low|
