Leadership styles handout with four categories. Participants were asked to rank them in order from "most like me" to "least like me."

I ordered them as:

  • Troubleshooter (orange)
  • Stabilizer (gold)
  • Visionary (green)
  • Nurturer (blue)
Use the colors to help put people in the positions that suit them best.

Have a team made up of all colors, focus on the goal of the team.

Don't always hire "you" over and over. Diversify your team, employees
