George Washington

Your presidential leadership style is George Washington! When tough times come, you insist on taking the brunt of the hardship. The privileges of rank embarrass you. You believe a true leader is a humble servant of the people. Although he was offered the crown, George Washington refused to become king, and made sure no US President would ever be addressed as “Your Majesty.” He was deeply beloved by all the men under his command.   Personalized Reading Recommendation People with your humble leadership character will resonate with Humble Inquiry, a book for leaders who prioritize building relationships over snapping orders.  The more powerful you are, the more important it becomes to practice “the gentle art of asking instead of telling.” Get it here for 40% off.

Thomas Jefferson

Your presidential leadership style is Thomas Jefferson! The people around you are inspired by your fiery eloquence and unquenchable idealism. But even though your life may impress others, you still wish you could do more, and chafe against the limitations of reality. For example, Jefferson denounced slavery in the first draft of the Declaration, but his colleagues removed the passage, disappointing him deeply. However, his desire to push boundaries perservered. As president, he authorized the purchase of the vast unknown Lousiana territory and sent Lewis and Clark on their cross country journey of exploration.   Personalized Reading Recommendation Jeffersonian leaders will connect So Far From Home, a book by Margaret Wheatley for change agents who face overwhelming odds. The book will bolster your spirit, no matter how badly the world disappoints you. Get it here for 40% off.
