The Leadership Coaching Group


Nov 16, 2020

In this episode of The Leadership Coaching Group, Liz is talking with Dr. Nate Regier. Nate specializes in personality diversity, a former practicing psychologist and an expert in social, emotional intelligence, interpersonal communication, and leadership. Listen to what Nate has to say about personality diversity.

Nate shares what the title of his book, Seeing People Through, means, the different types of personalities, and what they really mean. Nate believes there are six predictable clusters of behavior that come from self-sabotaging patterns: overcontrolling, pushing beliefs, making silly mistakes, isolation, manipulation, and blaming.

Listen, as Nate discusses how, as a leader, you can approach a team member that you see exhibiting these types of behaviors and what tank filling is. Nate shares some ways to handle being promoted above your people skills and how to create a safe space for a leader in a negative environment. Nate also speaks about interaction safety, some hindrances to avoid, and one piece of advice for new leaders.
