Common leadership derailers and their traits

In every organisation there are a range of people, all with different leadership, management and coping styles. Some are more suited to derailing than others. Here are some of the common derailer groupings and traits that are associated with them.

The Renegade

The Renegade

When managing information, the ‘Renegade’ may create a vision that isn’t aligned with broader corporate objectives or other stakeholders’ goals, or fail to take into account other contextual factors. They are seen as headstrong but lacking in judgement and misguided.

The Bulldozer

The Bulldozer

When managing tasks, they may focus too much on action and results, running the risk of overlooking the human factor and showing a lack of interest in or awareness of the feelings of others.

The Micromanager

The Micromanager

When managing people, they may stay too involved in decisions or the actual implementation of ideas and tasks. They could appear anxious or tense, especially when they don’t have control.

The People Pleaser

The People Pleaser

May find it difficult to act independently, make unpopular decisions or go against the status quo, as they can be overly concerned about being disliked or criticised.

The Ego

The Ego

Preoccupied with their own career aspirations and desire to stand out, they may come across as self centered and competitive. Perceived by others as superficial or lacking humility.
