Being ourselves or being leaders?

Having completed the last activity within the leadership module, I was wondering if we actually have shown our true leadership style. In other words, I mean that since we have a friendly relationship with most of our collegues, I'm not really sure if when we led that style was how we lead in fact. This also applies to me, as well.

I think when we are going to be managers and we will need to lead a team, maybe our style is not going to be that open-minded and democratic. Because it would be about our real job and real tasks. Now we knew that we are in a safe environment and maybe we didn't want to hurt other people feelings or aquire a certain reputation, like autocratic or bossy and hazard our social perception. As friends we have usually another attitude, but as leaders we have other traits, and people perceive us differently.

Thus, although I believe that we learned a lot of things about ourselves, our skills and abilities and definately we changed our perceptions about what leadership means, I think that we haven't explore ourselves as much as we could or would like.
