The 3 types of leaders: Which one are you?

Have you ever wondered how others would describe your leadership style? It does not matter what kind of leader you want to be, aspire to be or even believe you are. What matters is your real leadership style. Today’s For You leaders podcast is all about you and your leadership style.

Simply: Leaders are either for you, against you or for themselves. It’s a straight-forward but powerful concept:

Most leaders are for themselves. That is, looking out for only themselves. They are more worried about what they can get out of you vs. what they can pour into you.

It’s rare that a leader wakes up every day trying to wreck others, but it does happen. These leaders are Against You (Hitler is the prototypical example of an Against You).

The leaders that continually get results are For You Leaders. For You Leaders genuinely put others before themselves. They are rare and only represent about 10% of all leaders. These leaders care more about what they can put into you rather than what they can get out of you. However, make no mistake. They are not soft or pushovers.

That’s a super quick overview, but today’s podcast dives deeper into the inspiration behind the name for the podcast and how to tell which kind of leader you are today. Also, a quick thank YOU for making the For You Leaders podcast a top 10 business podcast! We make this podcast For You in hopes that it will help you become a better For You Leader.
