The DiSC Work of Leaders Model and Other Leadership Models

Leadership In FocusThe Speed Of Business Is Increasing 

The speed of business seems to get faster and faster. 
Because of this, it is all too easy to focus on the here and now and to forget the systematic issues within a business that actually are at the heart of long term success.    Leadership development is one of the areas that often could do with a lot more attention.  The impact of having great leaders is a critical element to any company’s success and spans across an entire organization, including employee well-being, improved engagement, employee satisfaction, retention and productivity.

We know that effective leadership is critically important.  We understand that it impacts the way companies are run, and how productive and profitable they are.  However, we also know that confidence in leadership is at an all-time low and continues to drop.  Not only is this visible in employee surveys, but also in the turnaround of managers in the workplace.  On average, a senior manager only stays in their position for 7.6 years, down from 9.5 years in 1995.

Some experts are now suggesting that this is due to the fact that although we know that we need to develop our leaders and managers, we don’t know how to do this.  Leadership development is a multi-million dollar industry, but one that focuses on the wrong issues.  In fact, some would go so far as to say that these businesses are not about improving management, but rather simply about improving their own bank balance.  Let’s take a look at the biggest mistakes made in the industry.

It doesn’t matter if you are presently struggling with leadership skills, anyone can develop the ability and become an excellent leader.

Leading By Example Is the Key

A great leader is actually someone who can lead by example.  It’s important that you commit yourself to a purpose before you can get others to follow you.  The first thing that should happen is you have to know the subject matter or required skills very well.  With your specific knowledge of the job, you can help to assist and motivate your fellow team members to get optimum results.  Don’t be somebody who simply hands off responsibility to others without any involvement or guidance.  You will not have to know every last detail but you should have enough understanding to guide your team to a successful conclusion.
