Leader’s come across many types of people. Some people will add value to your life while others will subtract from it. I believe it is important for leader’s to have an understanding of the different types of people they will encounter. John Maxwell has identified 5 types of people to be aware of:
“Refreshers- they inspire your dream and energize your talents.”
“Refiners- they sharpen your ideas and clarify your vision.”
“Reflectors- they mirror your energy, neither adding nor subtraction from it.”
“Reducers- they try to reduce your vision and efforts to their comfort zone.”
“Rejecters- they deny your talents, hinder your efforts, and impede your vision.”
It is important to have people who enhance the leader, team members, and organization. This is why it is important for leader’s to choose people with good characteristics. When finding people to join your team make sure they are the type of person you desire.
