What is the highest and best use of your time at work? It’s a question the OneHope team has been exploring lately. Perhaps you’ve taken personality or skills assessments before, like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator or Strengths Finder, to better learn how you operate in your giftings and relate to those around you. While these can be helpful, have you considered lately your primary leadership strength? When we closely understand our natural tendencies in leadership, we can be even more beneficial to our workplace.
Let’s explore what I call the Leadership Trifecta, three roles that work together in tandem to share and implement the organizational vision. Without all three skills present on your team, you’re in for a bumpy ride that doesn’t take you to your final destination. The Leadership Trifecta relates well to having a healthy and productive leadership team, and as individuals, it helps us determine where to focus our time and energy. In reality, all great leaders should be able to operate to some extent in these roles, but there is one that you naturally gravitate toward.
Which do you resonate with the most?
The Catalyst Leader: Catalysts excel at being inspirational, leading others to buy into the mission and vision.
The Activating Leader: Activists excel at meeting objectives and moving things forward from an operational or management standpoint.
The Strategic Leader: Strategists excel at envisioning what the future looks like, thinking through how to grow and expand.
I hope you’ll join me in diving further into the Leadership Trifecta in additional posts.
