“Knowing our enemies, knowing ourselves, we have always won the battles.” However, many leaders often stumble over their legs like the hair that blocks seeing the mountains especially when we have not learned enough to know ourselves. People have their leadership styles, they may be in a different way. Also, there are advantages and disadvantages in applying each leadership style. Therefore, successful leadership depends on having the right leadership style for different situations or contexts. In this article, it is an intention for learning that brings readers to find out in their styles that fit into their characters and turn their leadership styles in the different situations of life. This article represents that a person may have mixed leadership characteristics with personalities and decide to choose or adapt according to the situation. Leaders can raise their high potential to lead and follow more effectively. The article also presents a leadership model based on the concept of a British management behaviorist named William James Reddin.
