Your Preferred Leadership Style

Commanding Leaders are self-confident and have high expectations of their team members 

As a commanding leader, you are highly competent and expect your team members to match your passion and dedication. You set ambitious goals and work diligently to accomplish them.  

Strengths of the Commanding Leader
Commanding leaders are skilled at providing clarity for their teams, incentivizing quality work, performing with confidence, making difficult decisions, and creating helpful structures and systems for organizations. 

Opportunities for Growth for the Commanding Leader
Commanding leaders should be aware of their tendency to overlook their team members’ abilities to contribute creatively and the possibility of building a team culture of dependency.
