Nearly 100 Leadership Models

There are many, many leadership models

In our search for leadership models, we found many, many leadership models. Every organisation seems to have developed a leadership model. Churches, educational institutions, government, the coast guard and consultancies, they all have their models.

We are looking for rounded leaders

Most of the leadership models are visualised in a circle. We seem to be looking for rounded and balanced leaders. Our leaders can do it all. They can manage themselves, their team and the organisation. They help to improve the world. They balance the short- and the long term. They listen and inspire. They are tough and soft, fast and slow, emotional and rational, strategic and operational. Most of the models we have seen come from the same mould. Spiky leadership seems to be non-existent. Only a couple of models mention “humor” as a desired trait (the 4H model does: “Leaders laugh at themselves”). We got a bit bored by reviewing all these models. If you have better examples: please let us know, we certainly want to grow the collection in the coming year.
