Resolute leaders (and Everything Disc)

by Kristeen Bullwinkle and the DiSCProfile.com team

 

The resolute leadership style is the focus of this month’s continuing examination of the 8 dimensions of leadership. No matter what our own style of leadership, we all have something to learn from the styles that come more easily to others.

 

Who is a resolute leader?

Resolute leaders are highly determined and persistent. They have the inner strength to give people courage during hard times. They tend to be natural skeptics and show a disdain for weakness and incompetence. You might hear them say “should” a lot; they like to see things done the “right” way, or maybe just their way.

 

If you’re a resolute leader you might see yourself as highly competent, determined, rational, independent, and up for a challenge. You set high standards for yourself and others. You spot inefficiencies. and aren’t afraid to speak up when you see a problem.

Deliberate leaders (and Everything DiSC)

by Kristeen Bullwinkle and the DiSCProfile.com team

 

The deliberate leadership style is the focus of this month’s continuing examination of the 8 dimensions of leadership. We hope this listing of additional readings can extend your training and conversations through assignments, book groups, or lunch discussions about leadership. No matter what our own style of leadership, we all have something to learn from the styles that come more easily to others.

 

Deliberate leader on the 8 dimensions of leadership circleWho is a deliberate leader?

 

Deliberate leaders like their privacy and you’re unlikely to see them show emotions or be vulnerable. You probably will notice their desire for objectivity, their reliability, and organizational skills. You probably appreciate the clarity of their communications and think they’re good at making decisions.

 

If you’re a deliberate leader you might strive for a stable environment with lots of data and proven systems. Risk-taking and making quick decisions are probably hard, although you’re willing to take on tough challenges. You like to be seen as an expert in your field.

My experience with Everything DiSC Certification

by Kristeen Bullwinkle

Sign outside the training room for Everything DiSC CertificationSince I regularly write about Everything DiSC products, I thought it was high time I went to a certification class. For two days I was immersed with all things DiSC. Other participants ranged from new to seasoned trainers and from people familiar with all the Everything DiSC products to at least one who had just taken her first DiSC assessment. Attendees who were new to DiSC asked questions that commonly come up during trainings and we all got to hear how our trainers answered them. From what I heard, everyone found something useful to take home from the classes and so did I.

 

The two days were packed with activities, new information, video clips from the various facilitation kits, and lots of sample profiles. But to my relief we also had frequent breaks and really good food. (I hate to admit that I will judge every training I go to, at least partially, on their food.) If you’re planning attending one of these trainings, be sure to bring a tote bag to the second day so you can easily haul away all the sample reports and interaction guides you receive.
