Your superpower:


You easily connect and establish firm bonds with others.

Dynamics of the Leadership Task:

Autonomy Orientation and Identity
Developing and maintaining a clear identity of who you are is a central struggle for every leader. The degree of achievement will define your level autonomy, influence which roles you choose and shape your relationship with others.

Control Orientation and Intention
Leaders are geared to create impact, but vary on the extent they are guided by an inner calling. The orientation to control indicates how, as a leader, you hold yourself personally responsible to define strategies and drive implementation.

People Orientation and Inclusion
Leaders with a distinct people orientation will recognise that attaining desired outcomes is also the result of collaboration and inclusion. A high orientation will emphasise being part of a community and relying on others to cope with complexity.

About the Empowering Networker


You trust your team members unconditionally. To you being successful equals being part of a team and challenges are best solved together.

Side Effects

Don’t lose sight of the goal and your ideas. Internal competition and power struggles can jeopardise cohesion and make the path to success more difficult.


You are a networker and easily form contacts, which can pay off later. You work hard and pay special attention to good interpersonal relationships. With your large network, you increase the chances of success. Your team appreciates and profits from your network.


Reinforce your strengths! Draw a strengths map.

Draw a map and write down your strengths as a leader as if they were countries on a map. You can also draw landscapes that match your strengths. At the end you should see a small continent.

Do you notice anything? Is your continent perhaps missing a country that could help to connect other countries? Maybe a country is rather small and you would like it to be bigger. Pick a country / strength to create your dream country and work on it specifically. Do you want to improve your capacity to get things done? Or perhaps you want to create a more secure environment for your employees?

It is never too late to build strengths or to acquire a new skill.

Your network is your net worth.
