Find Out Your Management Personality... and Own It


More than half of the managers in companies across the country are untrained, under-resourced, and unprepared. Without proper guidance or formal management training, it's easy to see how imposter syndrome kicks in without warning.

You earned a management role, but you’re still making mistakes (as every human does). So, you don’t live INTO your management role. Instead, you tiptoe AROUND it. You only scratch the surface of yourself and, therefore, aren't getting what you need from your team. You aren't fully accessing the potential of your unique management style. That's about to change...

This guide will make you proud to call yourself a Manager.

In Top Secrets to Unlocking Your Management Style, you will learn…

  • The limiting thoughts keeping you from management success (like “what if I’m not respected” and “what if I don’t know what I’m doing”) - and how to prove the voices wrong 
  • Elements of four basic manager personality types and the ways each prefers to collaborate with employees
  • Why different types of employees and different situations call for varying degrees of control and encouragement 
  • How to use an Employee Assessment Template to help you gauge when to be more autocratic than diplomatic and vice versa

Step One: Find Your Identity within Your Role

Finally answer the burning questions you've had... "What kind of manager am I, and how does it affect my expectations of the people I manage?"





Step Two: Connect Your Management Personality with Management Style

Your management style is much different than your personality style as a manager. Think of personality style and management style as a toolbox. Your personality style is the type of tools you have in that toolbox. Your management style, on the other hand, is how you use those tools to fix something that’s broken. The ways in which you plan, prioritize, and organize efforts in the workplace determine your management style.

What You'll Get

By the time you finish this guide, you’ll be able to address workplace challenges like the one outlined below with techniques that make sense to you.
