Description

Product Description

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.

Review

“For a fresh outlook on what it takes to be a great leader, read this book. The 8 Dimensions of Leadership is an insightful, practical guide—a leader could spend ten or twenty years learning some of the lessons you’ll take away. Don’t wait.”
—Keith Ferrazzi, bestselling author of Never Eat Alone

The 8 Dimensions of Leadership is a treasure trove of practical leadership advice. Built upon a solid research-based foundation, the book is a remarkable collection of proven developmental strategies. Clear and engaging, it is a must-read for those who aim to sharpen their leadership skills and improve their interpersonal effectiveness.”
—Steven Snyder, founder and Managing Director, Snyder Leadership Group, and former CEO, Net Perceptions Inc.

“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

“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. Jeffrey Sugerman, Mark Scullard, and Emma Wilhelm challenge the widely accepted, but fundamentally flawed, assumption that you should lead only with your strengths. They argue most persuasively that you must stretch yourself beyond your primary dimension in order to meet the demands of today’s multidimensional environment. This highly personalized book is based on solid evidence, crammed with real-life examples, and full of practical suggestions that you can use immediately. You will be, as I was, richly rewarded when you read it and apply it.”
—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 for anyone interested in greater effectiveness in the new era of leveraging relationships! So much of what many of us want to get done these days requires an understanding of what makes us more or less comfortable as we engage with our world and the key people in it, and this should be considered a prime resource. Don’t let the simplicity and easily intuitive quality of its contents fool you. This is a power tool. As a more than twenty-year DiSC profile user and advocate, I was already familiar with and sympathetic to the basic model. But as I engaged with its simple but subtle concepts and suggestions, I was stunned by its ability to hit home for me in so many aspects of my own current leadership challenges and opportunities. It delivered instant validation and inspired direction for me. Bravo!”
—David Allen, Chairman, David Allen Company, and author of Getting Things Done

It is useful book. Nevertheless, the writers draw largely from their experience, rather than research. That is fine, but they could make a clearer separation between research (supported by empirically valid sources) and their own experiences. Sometimes, I was looking for references, and they weren''t there. (I want scientific research to support mental models. If something works, I want to know why it works. I have a bias for research. Not everyone shares my passion for research. That''s fine and dandy.)

I used the eight dimensions to create profiles for eight different leadership styles. These eight styles of leadership cover most leaders, so you can develop strategies for each leadership style. This book dovetails with the insights by Dr Robert Rohm.

It is a great read. Perhaps the next edition will include more research material to support the writers'' on-the-ground wisdom.

Just finished reading this. It was good and I''m recommending to anyone who wants to be a better leader. It''s all about blind spots and improving who we are as leaders. I picked up some great tips and tactics to ensure I was seeing into my blind spots. Some are hard to take, as it should be. It''s a challenge to think about and do things that may be completely on the other side of the DiSC circle to ourselves. But it''s worth exploring the ideas and the book is written well. Read, not full of fluff and gets to the point for all us D''s who read this.

Personalized leadership advice
Reviewed in the United States on June 20, 2020
Very insightful, specific to each person, not just generic advice. I was pretty shocked how well I matched one of the profiles. Really easy to read and suck. Gets your reflecting on what qualities YOU bring vs. where you can improve.

Just when you thought you understood DiSC, here''s yet another perspective to get even more mileage out of it.
The authors have really hit the nail on the head with this one.
I do agree with multiple other reviewers - the paperback binding is poor quality, this is going to fall apart once its been read a few more times.

This is a great book that teaches the disc model and helps you understand all the different leadership models. I would recommend to anyone in a position of leadership that has the desire to grow their leadership style and be able to connect more with the people around them.

This book is fantastic. It builds on the DiSC assessment so you will have to have taken that in order for this to be applicable. I liked how it emphasized leadership and the different types. I used the assessment in my own department and it was incredibly insightful. Who doesn''t enjoy learning a little bit more about themselves professionally? Definitely recommend.
