Share on linkedin June 3, There are a number of common traps that leaders can fall into. All leaders need to have a vision for their team, department or organisation — this should be exciting, engaging and meaningful. It should help your people see how they can contribute to the overall purpose of the organisation. And it needs to be repeated, by you and by your management team , regularly.

People need purpose…it makes them fly.

So…be honest about who you are and what you stand for, understand and talk about your strengths and your weaknesses, and get help where you need it. What we often find though is that leaders often use the same one-tactic strategy as they move through their careers, rather than learning how to nuance their style and behaviour.

So to avoid falling foul of political forces beyond their control or comprehension, leaders need to make it their business to understand and deliver to the needs of the people in their world who hold the greatest influence.

Each one of these folks is a human being with their own complexities, aspirations, strengths and failings. So delegating properly is a simple process of providing a clear, simple briefing and deadline, checking in on progress regularly and providing feedback along the way to get the quality output you need.

So there you have our top six leadership derailers and what leaders can do to avoid them. Dr Paul Brewerton.

Could Your Personality Derail Your Career?

How Personality Impacts Leadership Share an example of a personality trait and how it impacts leadership. Consider someone very high on Need to Control, a Dominance trait. They are domineering and bossy, opinionated and like to advocate ideas rather than listen or seek collective intelligence; they get impatient and are vulnerable to the confirmation bias; they may act before thinking it out. Not too surprisingly, Need to Control is negatively associated with leadership, teamwork and communications … Now, Skip, of course personality traits do not operate in isolation, so what also matters are the other traits in a Profile with Need to Control! The LMAP assessment is a Circumplex model where traits are organized on a circular chart that represents how they interact with and are influenced by the presence or absence of other traits.

Even better: Ask bosses, peers, subordinates, and clients to give you honest and critical feedback on your tendency to display these traits. Tell them that you want to improve and need their candor. Do any of the traits sound a little or a lot like you? You can improve your self-awareness through formal feedback mechanisms, such as performance appraisals, s, check-ins with your manager, and project debriefs.
