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 be an effective leader.   This leadership book provides both.

Using the Everything DiSC assessment - one of the most scientifically validated tools available - the 8 Dimensions of Leadership identifies eight individual leadership styles and why they\'re important.

Contact us for the FREE short assessment to get your DiSC Leadership Map.  After completing the DiSC assessment, your one page DiSC Map will reveal your primary leadership dimension - Pioneering, Energizing, Affirming, Inclusive, Humble, Deliberate, Resolute or Commanding.   You\'ll understand the psychological drivers, motivators, and "blind spots" charactristic of your primary leadership dimension.   Your DiSC Map will also identify two dimensions that you may need to work on.

No one leadership style will take you all the way.  For instance, a Humble leader may have a hard time making tough decisions, and 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.

Reviews

"It is always refreshing to read a research-based book on leadership that presents convincing evidence that the best leaders are not \'single celled\' or \'one-trick ponies.\'  The book guides all leaders to discovering new behaviors that enable them to go beyond their autopilot approaches and the ultimate ruts that so many leaders dig for themselves."

-Jack Zenger, CEO, Zenger Folkman, and coauthor of the bestselling The Extraordinary Leader and The Extraordinary Coach
