The Complexities of Personality

Researchers have exposed a profound truth: While stock prices, market share and material assets are important, softer factors determine true organizational strength. Employee engagement, job satisfaction and creativity play greater roles in performance, effectiveness and profitability.

Leadership personality and style are the most crucial factors in organizational strength, asserts psychologist and leadership consultant Ron Warren, PhD, in Personality at Work: The Drivers and Derailers of Leadership (McGraw-Hill Education, 2017). The spectrum is extremely complex, with experts debating its intricacies and nuances. Dr. Warren cites five behavioral traits that includes a pair of opposing behaviors:

  1. Openness to other ideas / cautious or distrusting of other ideas
  2. Conscientious about their impact / careless about their impact
  3. Extroverted, people-oriented / introverted, socially uncomfortable
  4. Agreeable, cooperative / argumentative, confrontational
  5. Confident, at peace / neurotic, nervous

Every leader is an amalgam of these behaviors, exhibited along a spectrum. Dr. Warren harnesses the power of these behaviors in four key personality dimensions that affect organizational success:

  • Social intelligence and teamwork (a positive trait)
  • Deference (negative)
  • Dominance (negative)
  • Grit/task mastery (positive)
