Everyone can recall their best manager – and their worst – and the specific things they did to boost (or dent) morale and performance. This workbook gives leaders a chance to understand, and improve, their own leadership style. Korn Ferry has identified six styles that leaders use to bring out the best in their teams. By matching the right style to a given situation, leaders can make a positive impact on the business.
Use the Leadership Styles Workbook to help your leaders:
- understand which of the six styles they use most frequently
- compare what they do with what their situation requires of them
- get tips on when a particular style is more, or less, effective
- start to think about areas for action and improvement.
