LH DynamicsLeadership strategy for Dealmakers


Focus on your primary profile

How much time do you spend every week as a Star, connecting and promoting? How much less value do you deliver when you are working in areas that are not in your flow? Work with your team to redesign your work 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-promoting’ and the team can’t keep up, shift your time to spend more of it in your secondary profiles, which are Creator and Supporter. As a Creator, focus on fine-tuning your brand. As a Supporter, focus on connecting with your team.

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

As a general guide, the most powerful team for a Star is to have a Deal Maker (2 steps clockwise along the square) to negotiate deals and a Lord (another 3 steps clockwise along the square) to take care of the details. This 1–2–3 formula works for all profiles. If you are looking to join a team rather than create your own, Stars are the most powerful at getting out front and promoting. 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

Stars create value through their intuitive thinking and extrovert nature. People trust you for your ability to innovate in response to feedback you receive. As people see you naturally taking initiative, you will be given more responsibility and have more resources allocated to you.
