Your Bosses Leadership Style | 9 Life Path
I received a request from a reader, asking about how to understand the style and traits of bosses by looking at the Life Path number.
(A shout-out to Chantel! Thanks for asking this question!)
Since I’ve not addressed this before, I thought I’d offer my take on it.
Not to complicate matters, yet I would also say, if you can find out the Expression (or Destiny) number of the person in question, that would be an even more complete way to understand leadership style.
(If, for some bizarre reason, you know both the Life Path and the Expression-Destiny number of your boss, read for both numbers to get a more expansive picture of your bosses leadership style).
Because the Expression-Destiny number indicates how you will go about doing what you do. It’s often a great gauge as to what kind of work or career you would be good at or will gravitate toward.
Knowing this aspect will give you an even clearer idea about leadership style than knowing just the Life Path. Although it’s fair to say that it might be much more challenging to discover the Expression-Destiny number of your boss or potential boss, given that it’s calculated from your full birth certificate name, not from your birth date.
With that said, let’s go!
9 Life Path: The Charismatic & Creative Altruist
Ah, the 9 Life Path boss is always (underneath it all) very concerned about the state of the world. The 9 boss can be a beautiful weirdo (I say that lovingly) and the sooner you understand that about them, the better off you’ll be. In their game, the 9 boss leads with heart and with service. They have a high level of compassion, intuition, and are multi-talented. The 9 is innately creative and have a “fake it ‘til you make it” vibe that is undeniable and charisma that can’t be underestimated. Those with a 9 Life Path are old souls who have internal resources that surprise even them.
Style: The 9 boss can come across as having multiple personalities (metaphorically speaking). One day, the 9 boss is an over-giver. The next, the self-absorbed task-master. Another day, a belligerent wrecking-ball and the next, deeply humbled and seemingly in touch with the wants and needs of others. The 9 boss often has difficulty distinguishing between healthy support and enabling. Emotions run deep and strong, yet the 9 Life Path can have roadblocks to expressing emotions with clarity and consistency. The “go-to” becomes to lecture others and then walk away, so to speak. The 9 boss is learning the power of empathy and of listening to others.
What they want and need from YOU (whether they know it or not!):
- They need people who can step out of the way and allow them to be a veritable tsunami.
- They need team members who not only tell them what they need, but do it before they even know they need it. This goes for bookkeeping, filing, keeping their calendar — that sort of thing.
- They need people around them who can handle and manage their intensity, high energy levels, and odd idiosyncrasies.
- Incredibly quirky and creative
- Multi-talented and creative problem solver
- Can be self-sacrificing
- Can become defeated and self-focused
- Disappointment can become a road block to moving forward with optimism
Biggest Nemesis: Becoming a rebel without a cause or bogged down in the disappointment based on personal and professional losses. The 9 Life Path boss often wants to change people (and change the world), yet they struggle to actually like people overall!
Think of: Jim Carrey or Adele
Ideal: The 9 Life Path boss is incredibly generous — with a humanitarian focus. Creative, energetic, and unpredictable, the 9 boss can be an enigma and yet has a huge heart and is driven to serve the greater good.
