To be an effective leader you need to know your strengths—but that’s only part of the story. You also need a broad perspective on all the behaviors needed to guide leaders and teams today. This book provides both.
Using the third-generation DiSC® online working styles’ assessment—one of the most scientifically validated tools available—The 8 Dimensions of Leadership helps you identify your primary leadership dimension and those that may challenge you in your role. Whether you are a Pioneering, Energizing, Affirming, Inclusive, Humble, Deliberate, Resolute, or Commanding leader, the authors help you understand the psychological drivers, motivations, and “blind spots” characteristic of your style.
But no single style will take you all the way. A Humble leader may have a hard time making tough decisions. A Commanding leader may run roughshod over potential allies. The authors detail the lessons all leaders can learn from each style, enabling you to craft a multidimensional approach to becoming the leader you aspire to be.
What a gift to offer our fellow leaders who can not only understand their own leadership style strengths and potential blind spots but learn more about yours! Pairs well with the Everything DiSC Workplace, Work of Leaders, Management and Leadership 363 profiles as well!
