Type-Appropriate Leadership


Everyone is unique. Nevertheless, we always see similar personality traits in different people. Type models help us to understand people better as they simplify a complex world. In your role as a manager, you deal with a wide variety of employee types and should know how best to deal with whom. So that all employees in your team can fully use their potential, it is important to address them individually according to their personality or personality type, to understand them, challenge them and develop them. Type-appropriate leadership enables you to do exactly that. You can assess what type of person your counterpart is and then accurately select the strategy from the repertoire of actions to help to understand them in the best possible way. This way, you not only succeed in responding to individual employees in a way that is appropriate to their personality type but also in forming teams in such a way that similarity has a mediating effect and difference has a stimulating effect.
