Leader or Follower?

Some people shy away from authority and power – they simply don’t like making decisions. On the other hand, some people are frustrated if they don’t have the power and decision making authority. There is a lot wrapped up in this to do with one’s self-confidence but also it is having the emotional intelligence and sensitivity to know when to take the lead and when to accept the role of follower. And, as always, there is a time to lead and there is a time to follow: this is the behavioural flexibility I was talking about lately!
