LH DynamicsLeadership strategy for Accumulators


Focus on your primary profile

How much time do you spend every week as an Accumulator, collecting data and resources? How much less value do you deliver when you are working on areas that are not in your flow? Work with your team to redesign your time to increase the amount of time you spend in flow. Base your milestones on how much you are converting your creativity.

Use your secondary profiles

Your secondary profiles are like wings. If you need to slow down, because you are ‘over-trading’ and the team can’t keep up, shift your focus to spend more time in your secondary profiles, which are Trader and Lord. As a Trader, focus on transactions. As a Lord, focus on analysing details.

Use the 1–2–3 formula to build your team

As a general guide, the most powerful team for an Accumulator is to have a Mechanic (2 steps clockwise along the square) to create systems and a Supporter (another 3 steps clockwise along the square) to connect with the team. This 1–2–3 formula works for all profiles. If you are looking to join a team rather than create your own, Accumulators are very valuable in project management. Stay in your flow by using your strengths within the teams you join.

Tune in to your team members

Each profile has a different natural way to lead, learn, communicate and get into flow. Help others to know how to best work with you, and connect with your team members, partners and customers in the way that works best for them. To do this takes an understanding of each of the profiles.

Grow your trust and flow

Accumulators create value through analysis and timing. People trust you for your ability to sense timing based on details. As you master the art of resource and data collection and taking action, you naturally attract more responsibility and people trust you with even more resources.
