The Secure Leader

Insights and Strategies

Approximately 70% of people quit their jobs because of poor managers. Kylie Bell finds that our leadership style may be impacted by our earliest relationships, and way our "attachment styles" evolved as we were growing up. Attachment theory was first developed by John Bowlby and Mary Ainsworth. There are four primary attachment styles: Anxious, Avoidant, Disorganized and Secure. Kylie provides Eve Ash with an example of an anxious general manager of a consulting firm who did not trust his branch managers who therefore stopped making decisions. An avoidant CEO was fearful of giving feedback and his teams were lacking direction and in conflict. Kylie advocates secure behaviours as a means of improving safety and security, developing confidence and building relationships, resulting in less conflict and turnover.
