When did you fail as a leader initially and had to adjust your style to fix the issue?

3 Answers

I had a situation in my first leadership position where I took a very authoritative approach to leading my team and I failed miserably. After I was counseled by an important mentor of mine, I learned that my singular approach to leading was incorrect and that I needed to adjust my leadership style to each of my team members' needs. After learning what motivated each of my team members, I became a more effective leader and was able to lead a cohesive team.

John was a unique interviewer. He would ask several questions and would cut you off during the answers. Between that and the fact that he cannot sit still and would push ups and scratch and pull at his crotch during the interview process as well as ramble on; should have been a warning sign. Don' accept the position! You will regret it!
