competitive and goal-oriented.
Leaders are demanding, hard-driving, and productive.
Keller believed that Brodsky had excellent analytical skills and that
he had done a superb job of redesigning the sales force organization and of developing a comprehensive set of information and control systems.

Example: Annoyed by Brodsky’s response, Keller drove three hours one Friday evening to confront the distributor. After a long and heated discussion, he returned to Kiev with a check for the full amount.
Brodsky's Needs

Example: The memorandum gave a detailed list of his accomplishments during his first year as commercial director and took issue with Keller’s criticisms of his management style. Brodsky also defended his delegatory management style, arguing that it was essential for the development of his subordinates.

Need for Power- Brodsky feels undermined by Keller's interventions and overlooked by managers

Example: He also notes that Zelenko was heavily involved in both sales and marketing and that several middle managers seemed far more comfortable dealing with Zelenko than with Brodsky. Brodsky explained that this resulted from his delegating tasks appropriately to Zelenko.
