Emerging Leaders Blog Series


* A Leadership Development Blog Series *

April 2014

Center for Work Life put on thinking caps to determine a method for reaching out and assisting leaders in the local Orlando community. The Emerging Leaders blog series is the result.  Presentation Trainer, Marion Chapsal, developed a model of 12 leadership styles based on the SPM (Spony Profiling Model), created by Dr. Gilles Spony at Cranfield School of Management. This blog series features inspirational female leaders from the Central Florida area, some of which will include Sandi Vidal Executive Director at Christian HELP and Andria Herr, President of Hylant.

The purpose of determining one’s fit in the model is to understand their strengths and learn from a mentor with the opposite leadership style. Not only has this series assisted notable female professionals who have participated, but these posts are also designed to help readers assess their own style. Each blog post reveals a leadership style, discusses that style’s characteristics and features a local leader who embodies the style.

The 12 leadership styles include the achiever, analyzer, driver, facilitator, humanist, innovator, maintainer, moderator, monitor, networker, persuader and pioneer.

View the chart below to see the leadership styles and discover which are opposites. If you’re curious to discover your own style, subscribe to our blog (bottom right on site) for Emerging Leaders Blog Series updates. These posts will delve further into details on the styles and examples. Or if you’re looking for in-depth leadership development help, give us a call at Center for Work Life.
