The Leo Employee - Personality and Characteristics


One of the most spectacular signs of the Zodiac, a Leo seeks warmth and attention in professional as much as in personal relationships. People with this sign are born between July 23rd  and  August 22nd. Here are a few useful insights on what it may be like to have a Leo working for you.

Craves to be the center of attention

Being under the spotlight comes naturally to a Leo. This zodiac sign is ruled by the sun which stands at the center of the solar system while all the planets revolve around it. Similarly a Leo employee will expect to be center the attention in practically every situation at the workplace, whether it is an important overseas project or the yearly fete. And woe betides the boss who forgets this cardinal fact. So if you have just inked a lucrative deal with the help of a Leo employee, be sure that to give credit where it is due and for added measure let your recognition of his/her efforts come in a public space before other co-workers instead of behind closed doors in your cabin. On the other hand if you are the kind of boss who naturally assumes that every successful outcome produced by your subordinates’ efforts is yours by right, perhaps having a Leo work for you is not the wisest thing to do. This is because a Leo will growl and roar until you agree to let him/her have the credit which he/she deserves. And even if you believe your feline employee is way down the rungs to be a bother, you will find him/her sulking and pouting till you eventually give in and let them bask in the limelight. So whether your Leo worker roars from center stage or bides his/her time in the wings, remember they are a proud tribe. They are completely aware of their superiority and thus well within their rights that their qualities and successes be recognized and appreciated.

A streak of the vain

Closely related to their love of the spotlight, is the Leo tendency to be vain. You can get much more out of your Leo employee if you show appreciation for their professional prowess by means of a grand-sounding title rather than an increase in the paycheck. Sure Leos love to possess fine things and show off their luxuries, because of which they cannot hope to be persuaded to work for peanuts. But just let a co-worker put up a plaque with an extravagant title and your Leo employee will pull a long face at his/her own pay hike. What a Leo is essentially looking for is to be openly acknowledged the best of the lot – the veritable King of the Jungle whose zodiac symbol he/she bears. And even if he/she cannot as yet aspire to the position of the boss with you still around, you can be sure that with their natural charisma, it is only a matter of time before they rise to the top.

Solid sense of responsibility

Despite all their hunger for attention and vanity, what makes it worthwhile to have a Leo in your workforce is their strong sense of responsibility. You can count on a Leo to take charge of any kind of project, no matter how difficult the circumstances or how intractable the client. It is another matter that instead of doing the hackwork him/herself, a Leo will enlist the best minds on the job so that it exceeds your highest expectations in the end. In fact so great is a Leo’s need to take charge that he/she feels quite useless and even unwanted when not assuming some kind of obligation. If there's nothing else available to build his/her sense of importance, you can find a Leo plumping up his/her  own self it by handing out free advice to co-workers, friends, family and sometimes strangers too. Thus the best way to get work out of a Leo is to invite him/her to take responsibility of an assignment, a refurbishing plan or even where to have this year’s Christmas party – this is not only keep your leonine employee happy and out of everybody’s way but in fact enable you to make full use of their resourcefulness.

A natural leader

Once you add to a Leo’s unshakeable sense of responsibility, a fearless personality then you have the perfect person to cope with emergencies and come up with immediate solutions to an impending disaster. It is this combination of a courageous and responsible nature that makes a Leo a natural leader of men and women – someone to look up to and fall back upon when all seems lost and the enemy – read customer or debtor – breathing fire down your neck. Leadership comes naturally to a Leo who seems to have an innate knack of organizing people, delegating jobs and getting the work done by everyone around them. Mind you, the Leo does not have the giddy energy of an Aries or the Gemini’s knack for being present everywhere at the same time and may be even be given to spells of laziness at times; yet trust Leo with a job and you can rest assured that it will get done. As the boss, you might even be taken aback to find that your Leo employee has quite a circle of admirers at the workplace or at least some very pliant co-workers. This is because a Leo appears to attract followers as naturally as the King of the Jungle whose symbol this zodiac bears.

Even Leos who have just started out their careers will show some evidence of their leadership skills despite the fact that they may have yet to climb several rungs on their professional ladder. At the same time, their inherent sense of leading a pack may not sit well with their actual subordinate status which is why young Leos have some of the biggest problem in taking orders from superiors. However once your Leo employee decides that you are worth giving his/her allegiance to, he/she will serve you with complete devotion. This is because loyalty ranks among the highest qualities for a Leo and just as he/she expects unwavering fidelity from his/her subordinates, a Leo is equally willing to accord the same privilege to you as his/her employer.

So finally whether a Leo is quiet or flamboyant, one is almost always ready to overlook their arrogance, their frequently insufferable ego and occasional spells of laziness because of their natural charisma as well as the large and warm heart that lies within.
