I found a really interesting article on female leadership styles on-line - it is technical - here is a quote "The "personal instrumental" style is evident in the action of leaders skilled in projecting and utilizing all aspects of their persona. Leaders who prefer the "personal instrumental" style utilize their intelligence, wit, compassion, humor, family background, previous accomplishments and defeats, courage, physical appearance, and sexual appeal to connect themselves to those whose commitment and help they seek to engage. The admiration and affection of followers may serve as both motive and sustenance for "personal instrumental" achievers." http://www.achievingstyles.com/articles/female_leadership_styles.asp

Are you a commander, a facilitator, a pusher, a collaborator or some other type of leader? How does it differ from work to your personal life?

Admin At work I would rather be the collaborator and dig in with my group and get things done. I have the last word of course. I also once in a while might have to snap into a commander to keep things on course. I like to use humor and compassion as long as the group will let me. When I first began to lead with a partner on a personal level, I found that I had to be the commnder. While he was willing to submit physically, there was a push/pull game going on to see if I was going to stand my ground. Perhaps he just couldn't believe that I wasn't going to quit because I really didn't want to. Rather like the adopted kid who tries the new family to see if they really want to love them. Perhaps that is exactly what was happening, he was checking to see if I really still loved him when he wasn't the big, strong, bossy male.

Victoria I too am a full time collaborator - I just find it smoother and more productive when everyone acts like a grown-up and ponies up to the work. I sometimes get a kick from commanding but only a temporary thrill. I do like to be commanded though but being asked is fine too.

Most people, not just women are commanders, it is a simple leadership style where one commands and others do. While that does not scale it does work in interpersonal relationships. Men get this because it is simple.

Where I work they test me periodically to evaluate my leadership / personality style. I test as a 'Dominator'/'Controller', which isn't as bad as it seems. It basically means I like data points surrounding a decision, then like to get the decisions out of the way with the maximum efficiency. I can't say it is that different at home. The problem is at home, no one tests my wife! If I tested her and found her profile, we could tailor our communication better. A good 'to-do'.
