What's My Leadership Style? - Theoretical Background
The theory behind What’s My Leadership Style is based on the proven personality theories of Marston and Jung, the model identifies two basic dimensions of personal style: Assertiveness and Expressiveness. Assertiveness is the effort a person makes to influence or control the thoughts or actions of others. Expressiveness is the effort that a person makes to control his or her emotions and feelings when relating to others. Combining the two dimensions results in a four-quadrant model with four unique personal styles: Direct, Spirited, Considerate, and Systematic. The simplicity of the model makes it is easier for you to facilitate and easily remembered by your participants. You will find the model is quickly picked up by learners and integrated back on the job.
