Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Don’t Be a One-Dimensional Leader!
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 book provides both.
Using the third-generation DiSC® online personality assessment—one of the most scientifically validated tools available—The 8 Dimensions of Leadership helps you identify your primary leadership dimension. 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.
“Presents convincing evidence that the best leaders are not ‘single celled’ or ‘one-trick ponies.’ Leaders will discover new behaviors that enable them to go beyond their autopilot approaches and the ultimate ruts that so many dig for themselves.”
—Jack Zenger, CEO, Zenger Folkman, and coauthor of the bestselling The Extraordinary Leader and The Extraordinary Coach
“The quest for leadership is first an inner quest to discover who you are, and one of the best places to begin that quest is with The 8 Dimensions of Leadership.”
—Jim Kouzes, Dean’s Executive Professor of Leadership, Leavey School of Business, and coauthor of the bestselling The Leadership Challenge and The Truth about Leadership
“An enormously valuable book—I was stunned by its ability to hit home for me in so many aspects of my own current leadership challenges and opportunities.”
—David Allen, Chairman, David Allen Company, and author of Getting Things Done
