LH DynamicsLeadership strategy for Traders


Insight | LH Dynamics | Luxury Hospitality

Focus on your primary profile

How much time do you spend every week as a Trader, relying on your senses and providing service? 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-trading’ and the team can’t keep up, shift your time to spend more of it in your secondary profiles, which are Deal Maker and Accumulator. As a Deal Maker, focus on making the right connections. As an Accumulator, focus on enhancing the details.

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

As a general guide, the most powerful team for a Trader is to have a Lord (2 steps clockwise along the square) to maximise returns and a Star (another 3 steps clockwise along the square) to take care of marketing. This 1–2–3 formula works for all profiles. If you are looking to join a team rather than create your own, Traders are very valuable in service and sensing the right pace and timing. 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

Traders create value through their sensory acuity and timing. People trust you for your ability to sense the right time to listen and to act. As people see you master taking action, you will be given more responsibility and have more resources allocated to you.
