This one leads by aggression, overt control, and superiority over others. They depend on others staying afraid and insecure. This leader is deeply insecure and fears a fate worse than death: Being a "common nobody".
They work hard to keep their fear hidden since they see it as a weakness. This one is energetically similar to a slave owner and does not want the ‘slaves’ to discover their own inner power since that would topple the false authority of this “leader”.
This one leads, paradoxically, by staying energetically enslaved to others. They are often seen as humble, moral, or heroic. They can be a welcomed alternative to the dominating style of type #1 yet actually live in fear too; of others' opinions.
They predominantly look to their conditionings and outside of themselves for answers and direction. They narrow and limit their creativity and expression to what is deemed acceptable and pleasing to the collective, the culture, their followers, or their belief system. They unconsciously keep others small to keep the co-dependency in place and have a jealous or competitive dark side that they work very hard to keep hidden, not just from others but most of all from themselves.
They may talk of empowerment because deep down they yearn for it but haven’t yet learned how to fully recognize it or live it.
The 3rd Leader is deeply individual so any description will fall short. This one is not interested in energetic slavery except to free themselves of it and invite others to do so too. He or She is committed to their own uniqueness, integrity, and purpose and is not afraid to stand up for it. They can create confusion for the collective mind that knows only the duality of the first 2 types.
When we are in the 3rd type of leadership we are compassionate and enjoy seeing others think for themselves and discover their own abilities, voice, power, and vision. We may be loved by some yet hated or feared by others but not swayed by projections (positive or negative).
This is where we desire most of all to stay true to ourselves and our inner vision. We work hard to be able to withstand the pressure to fit in. Here we know of our imperfections and are always learning but we do not allow that as an excuse to hold back. We might be perceived as egoic yet in reality we are humbled as we shine ourselves fully for something bigger than our man-made limited ego-self (and others' ego-self).
In this leadership, we are a leader whether we are alone or have others around us because we strive ultimately to be the leader and creator of ourselves and our own life. We retain this sense of leadership even if others want to strip us of our success, position, or reputation because although we may work towards and embrace receiving due credit or support, we are not fearfully dependent on it.
These 3 leader types are not really people but energies within us related to our creative potential. We may currently embody one type predominantly yet likely aspects of all. Different life situations bring up specific aspects of ourselves so we can grow stronger in our awareness and discernment.
The 3rd Leader comes to the forefront increasingly as we acknowledge, heal, and step out of the unconsciousness causing the two more common “leader” types. When the beliefs keeping them in place dissolve they lose hold over us (inside us and outside).
In a way, the first 2 types give birth to the 3rd leader.
Out of the 3rd Leader emerges THE VISIONARY.
