Management styles

Being a professional expert is no longer enough to justify one’s authority. Often, you don’t get to choose your team members. Dotted reporting lines reduce authority. A co-worker becomes a subordinate. All these situations require insight and ability to motivate others no matter how different from you. This is what ShiftingBehaviour Management training offers.

Managing teams today demands leadership and communication skills. The manager is the person responsible for the outcome of the relationship. How we demonstrate our responsibility as a leader, is defined as our Management (or leadership) style.

Leadership styles

In the Process Communication Model, we define 4 different leadership styles: the Democratic leader, Autocratic leadership, Benevolent leadership and Laissez-faire (definitions are in the FAQ section). Each person, according to his Personality profile, has a preferred leadership style, that he/she will spontaneously consider the best. In the corporate world, the democratic style is generally prevalent.

Role playing

Our training sessions use role playing and observing videos to identity and practise the relevant type of management according to the interaction you have with your co-worker. We can prepare for difficult management situations by rehearsing them, also through a complementary Personal development plan.
