Leadership Illustrations

By Donna Dunning

Donna DunningIn my MBTI® Certification workshops I ask groups to describe leadership strengths and challenges associated with their preferences. These visual representations of type preferences help illustrate individual differences.

Here is a photo of a response from an NF group. They see themselves as empathic, collaborative, and innovative in the leadership role.

Some of the challenges they include are linked to using the Sensing preference to be aware of details, provide specific instructions, and be realistic.

Notice how they also see challenges in overusing their strengths, such as having too many ideas or finding it time consuming to reach consensus.

Knowing your strengths and challenges helps you determine your natural leadership approach and shows you what areas you might need to improve.

Awareness of personality type preferences can also, if you are open-minded, help you adapt to and accommodate people who have different approaches than your own.

Do you have NF preferences or have you worked for an NF leader? Do you see these as typical strengths and challenges?
