There are considered to be schools of thought when it comes to leaders: thinkers and doers, according to Mindjet and Jess3. “Thought leaders can shift both corporate perspectives and institutional capabilities to bring about game-changing outcomes for their organizations. Do leaders are detail-oriented planners. They have the ability to meticulously and relentlessly push a project to completion. Do leaders can instinctively identify risks and devise mitigation plans. They set firm goals and can be intensely focused on getting to the next objective, wrote Jascha Kaykas-Wolff of Mindjet.
There are usually a few doers and a few thinkers in each group which makes a pretty good combination. “When an inventive thought leader is paired with an efficient do leader, the result is far greater than the sum of its parts,” said Wolff. The prime example of a team like this would be the teams of Steve Jobs/Steve Wozniak and Bill Gates/Steve Ballmer. Look at the infographic below Mindjet to determine what kind of leader you are.
