Anyone can choose to go into management. The way in which the individual manages, however, will differ based on the person’s innate giftedness (if they are living true to their preference). For examples:

  • A brain lead in the frontal left lobe: authoritative, directive, and all business
  • A brain lead in the left posterior lobes: traditional, conservative,, and risk avoiding
  • A brain lead in the right frontal lobe: holistic, risk-oriented, adventurous, and entrepreneurial
  • A brain lead in the right posterior lobes: personable, interactive, and face-to-face

Herrmann analyzed management styles by brain quadrant dominance and by gender. A management styles matrix is included in his book. (Herrmann, Ned. The Whole Brain Business Book. p 98-114. NY: McGraw-Hill, 1996.)
