Moderate leaders liked more

Parent Interventions

Extroverts are often seen as natural leaders in organizations. But researchers at Arizona State University found that informal leaders were better liked and more sought after for advice when they hit a middle ‘sweet spot’ on levels of assertiveness and warmth, two facets of extroversion. The study found that team members reacted less favourably to leaders who were high on assertiveness or warmth.

Overly extroverted leaders came across as too pushy or too annoying; a moderate amount of assertiveness and warmth may be optimal.

Fellow employees can put up with more extroversion if they think you're doing it for others.If you're pro-socially motivated, people see more benefits to your assertiveness. They know you're not doing it just to promote yourself, but have a genuine interest in the team. That means a lot. Train your wards to develop qualities such as honesty, compassion, humilityand ability to define a purpose so that they are better equipped to become informal leaders.
