The Technocrat • Has strong sense of bottom line • Figures out numbers and strategy more than figuring out people • “my way or the highway” • Likes to hear themselves talk • People follow bc they are scared • Logic over emotion • Intense, detail-orientated, hard headed • Refusing to compromise

  6. Learning Styles • Discussion • Logic • Design • Emotion • A good leader knows that before there can be effective motivation, there must be effective communication

  7. Learning Style #1-Discussion • Meaningful discussion • Lots of dialogue and feedback • Getting everyone’s opinion is important to them • Loves to brainstorm, or throw many ideas out onto the table • Enjoy discussing each item before making a decision

  8. Learning Style #2- Logic • “just the facts” approach works best • Stresses analysis, organization, and approach focusing on “good sense.” • Some members of this group, not impressed by a lot of talk, are genuinely interested when they hear a direct, logical, to-the-point plan of action.

  9. Learning Style #3- Design • Need to see and hear how the “big picture” fits together • Includes engineers and other builders and designers • Encouraged when the leader presents a clear picture of relationships and shows how the different parts are all going to work together as a smooth running unit

  10. Learning Style #4- Emotion • Hands-on approach • Do best when their leader is energetic and fired-up • Enthusiasm is contagious • Need a leader who shows the group that he or she is emotionally involved in a project

  11. So learning styles help leaders…. • Communicate with their followers • Use the learning styles to choose your way to lead

  12. The planks of leadership • Copy these down and have them on the test…

  13. Plank 1: The leader has a sense of vision…. • Having vision is when you have the ability to see more than just the obvious • This helps leaders to see the big picture and figure challenges out • Enables a leader to spot a need that must be met, create a product or program that has tremendous possibilities • Goal: look at situation and step back and consider another perspective

  14. Plank #2 A leader is willing to act! • Leaders are doers! They take action! • They get the job done and do it well • Goal: when leadership is needed, take charge! • Start off with saying something like… “Here’s what we now need to do.” • Let your spoken words show that you are not afraid of a challenge and that you will act on getting the task completed

  15. Plank 3: A leader makes good decisions… • Nothing will kill the credibility of a leader than indecisiveness. • But you should never just make A decision, you should make the RIGHT decision. • Make sure you’re knowledgeable about the issues and the people involved • Make decisions in the correct order • Be aware of potential risks • Goal: when communicating to your group focus on what, why, and how!

  16. Plank 4: A leader can handle conflict… • #1 most important plank • Working well and making others feel good about themselves and the group • The leader has to manage conflict in the group • Conflict management: the ability to turn a potentially negative situation into a positive one. • Goal: Praise others efforts~happy people create happy situations.

  17. Plank #5 A leader works to avoid pitfalls… • Thinking about potential problems ahead of time will help stop it before it begins • Don’t be afraid to fail- take chances! • Pay attention to details- it keeps you organized! • Don’t forget the human factor • Listen to others

  18. Plank#6: A leader knows how to motivate! • Motivation is personal • What works for some, might not work for all • Be creative and spontaneous

  19. Leaders • They are everywhere • Female, male, old, young, rich, poor, and from many different ethnic groups
