Myth 1

Myth
Type ‘A’ Makes the best leader.

Reality
Great leadership is a result of the balance of abilities and learned, practiced skills.

Achieving this balance is absolutely necessary for your strengths to be present and effective.

Every personality type has its unique strengths. The key is to be conscious of your strengths, wrap them in applied tools and practiced skills and get ever better at leveraging them. Every personality type also has its opportunity areas, pitfalls, and weaknesses. The key here is to use your unique strengths to control, overcome, and/or eliminate your weaknesses.

No one style makes a better leader. Period.

The only difference between you and your role model leader is the conscious application of your authenticity coupled with filling the gaps with expertly applied skills. And don’t forget to leverage the natural strengths of others.
