Understanding our Leading Style, one of our 16 traits

3 min read

The concept of the leading trait in personality is often associated with leadership and the way individuals naturally tend to take charge or support in various situations.

This trait can be an essential aspect of understanding how people behave in group settings, whether it’s in the workplace, social circles, or other areas of life.

Let’s delve deeper into this leading trait and its implications for high and low scorers. Click to find out more:

High Leading Style

Individuals with a high leading style are proactive in taking charge of situations. They don’t wait for someone else to step up; they willingly assume leadership roles when needed.

High-leading individuals tend to be confident in their abilities to make decisions and guide others. They have a strong sense of self-assuredness.

They are often the ones who initiate projects, discussions, or plans. They don’t hesitate to set goals and drive the group toward achieving them.

People with a high leading style feel a sense of responsibility towards the group’s success. They take ownership of tasks and ensure they are completed efficiently.

High-leading individuals are often more willing to take calculated risks (although you have to check their Flexibility score as well). They see challenges as opportunities for growth and are unafraid to step out of their comfort zones.

High Supporter Style

Those with a low leading style prefer to play a supportive role within a group. They are more comfortable following someone else’s lead and providing assistance.

Low-leading individuals are perceived to be adaptable as they want to play a supportive role to the person or organization they are obliged to. 

They can lead if necessary but tend to do so on a short-term or need-to basis. They may step up when there’s a leadership vacuum or a specific skill set is required.

They excel in collaborative settings, where they can contribute their skills and expertise without the burden of leadership responsibilities.

They prioritize the success of their leaders or team and often excel in roles that require cooperation and teamwork.

It’s important to note that a person’s leading style can be situational. Even individuals with a high leading style may choose to step back and play a supportive role in certain situations, recognizing when it’s more appropriate for others to lead. Similarly, those with a low leading style may step up when they have unique expertise or when leadership is required for a specific task.

Additionally, a balance of leading and supporting traits within a group can be highly effective. A mix of leadership styles can provide diversity of thought, promote collaboration, and ensure that the right person steps into the leadership role when needed, contributing to overall group success. Leadership is not one-size-fits-all, and understanding one’s leading trait can help individuals make more informed choices about when to lead, when to follow, and how to best contribute to a team or organization.
