LH DynamicsLeadership strategy for Lords


Focus on your primary profile

How much time do you spend every week as a Lord, focusing on analysis? 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 time to increase the amount of time you spend in flow. Based your milestones on how much you are using your analytical skills to contribute value to your team.

Use your secondary profiles

Your secondary profiles are like wings. If you need to slow down, because you are ‘over-analysing’ and the team can’t keep up, shift your time to spend more of it in your secondary profiles, which are Accumulator and Mechanic. As an Accumulator, focus on timing. As a Mechanic, focus on the system.

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

As a general guide, the most powerful team for a Lord is to have a Creator (2 steps clockwise along the square) to set the direction and a Deal Maker (another 3 steps clockwise along the square) to take care of people. This 1–2–3 formula works for all profiles. If you are looking to join a team rather than create your own, Lords are valuable in providing analysis and details. 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

Lords create value through their analysis and detailed actions. People trust you for your ability to analyse and measure. Lords naturally leverage their position by multiplying through systems. As people see you master analysis and detail-focused work, you will gain more responsibility and be allocated more resources.
