Flexible Leadership

Flexible Leadership


Padraig Inc.


Padraig is one of Canada's leading firms for helping good leaders become great leaders and strong leadership teams to become extraordinary.

Flexible leadership means moving from a one size fits all (“this is my leadership style”) approach to providing direction, motivation, and development in a way that aligns with each individual. The happiest, most successful, most confident managers and leaders notice the needs of their employees and flex their leadership style accordingly.


  • Identify your foundational leadership style and explore the priorities that drive you during your workday.
  • Describe how behavior styles (your own and others) affect management responsibilities like decision making and problem solving.
  • Appraise your strengths and challenges when directing and delegating to others and adapt your behavior to manage people more effectively.
  • Discover what is needed to motivate others and plan how to provide it.
  • Pinpoint how to provide resources, environments, and opportunities that support long-term professional growth and prioritise what is needed for each employee.
  • Maximise your influence and effective communication with your own leader.
