About This Week’s Chat

Whether you’re the CEO of a company, in charge of a few interns, or even find yourself in leadership roles outside of the office, it is important to make sure you’re providing the best leadership possible. The question is, how do you know if you are successful in your role as a leader? Every single person in an organization is affected by leadership, which makes this topic very wide and incredibly important.

This week, we’ll be diving into the different styles of leadership that are practiced, and leadership’s influence on an organization. Leaders come from all types of backgrounds, with conflicting convictions and different views of success. We’re interested to hear what you think makes a leader, and, to get you started, here are three questions on the topic:

  • How has leadership style changed during your career?
  • How are leadership style and emotional intelligence related?
  • What brings out the best leadership style in you?


Now that those questions have sparked some insight into your past leadership examples, here are some resources that you can use to learn about different leadership styles. Many people think that leadership comes naturally, but the truth is that you can develop and improve the way that you lead just as you would any other skill. Learn more by reading the resources below:

If you’ve experienced poor (or excellent!) leadership in the past or are currently in a leadership role, we want to hear from you! We look forward to connecting with leaders of all types during our #MTtalk this Friday, May 27, 2016, at 1 p.m. EST, 6 p.m. BST. We hope you’ll attend with lots of leadership stories, tips and questions already in mind. Remember, the most insightful responses will be featured right here on our blog!
