Leadership Styles and Tendencies  
Each of us has our own unique style, or leadership style. When we interact with others who have a similar leadership style, communication is relatively easy. When we deal with others who have different leadership styles from ours, communication and cooperation can be challenging. The most important element of working across different leadership styles is our flexibility; our willingness and our ability to see things from the other person's point of view. In this module you analyze four leadership styles, or styles of interacting with others. You examine the characteristics of each style and take an assessment to determine our own leadership style. You focus on working with others across leadership styles to sustain motivating, successful relationships, and better results in your career.
