Here are four kinds of leader:
Type 1 – The absent leader. “I hardly ever see him, and when I do, he only ever talks about the next thing I have to do.”
Type 2 – The supportive leader. “She takes time to give me positive feedback, and helps me to do my job better.”
Type 3 – The challenging leader. “He’s never satisfied with what I do. He always wants more.”
Type 4 – The supportive and challenging leader “She’s incredibly supportive, but she’s incredibly challenging too. I feel valued, and I learn a lot.”
