ARE YOU AN EROS OR A LOGOS LEADER?

Many business leaders have a predominantly Eros personality. They’re creative, enthusiastic and good at big-picture thinking and making connections. They love to tell stories and create inspiring visions. As charismatic leaders, they are often admired by their teams. Many entrepreneurs are Eros types, often complementing their flair with a quieter sidekick – a Logos personality, who focuses on the numbers, detailed planning and execution. When there’s mutual understanding, trust and respect, this can be a winning combination.

Such Eros leaders are essential to long-term company success but the differences between them and their Logos colleagues can lead to tensions.

Eros leaders need to find ways to connect better with their predominantly Logos bosses and peers. That means developing a range of broader business and leadership skills to complement their increasingly complex and fast-changing technical skills.

So, which type are you? Which words best describe you?
