How would your team answer?
“This poll asks: How predictable is your leadership style?
- My team always knows what to expect from me and how I lead: 29%
- Most of the time I’m predictable, but I occasionally surprise people: 68%
- I’m mostly unpredictable, and my team reacts to my shifts in style: 1%
- I’m completely unpredictable, and my style is not clear to most others: 2%
People don’t like surprises at work. Being predictable in how you lead enables your team to focus on their work rather than wondering how you’ll react to things they do. A consistent and predictable leadership style helps your team make decisions in your absence.”
