What's Your Leadership Style?

What's your leadership style? Do you value tasks more than relationships, or do you care more about people than getting the job done? The answer could say a lot about how you lead and how others perceive your leadership. We all naturally value one over the other; it's not wrong, it's just how we are wired. However, it's important to know which way you lean so you can make adjustments to become a more balanced leader.

Youth workers who understand their leadership style are in tune with how their leadership impacts parents, students, adult volunteers and other church leaders. When you know your leadership style you can craft your interactions with key people in more intentional ways and you're more able to achieve key goals.

My friends at LeaderTreks just released a brand new FREE tool to help youth worker think through this issue. Check it out below:
