About the book:

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. For example a Humble leader may have a hard time making tough decisions, while 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.

The Map will point you to specific chapters in the book for deeper interpretation of your leadership style.

What Thought-Leaders Say About The Book

“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.”
—Rick Lodger, CEO, and coauthor of the bestselling book, The Magnificent Leader
“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. Glenda Baker, John Skully, and Wilber Young 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.”
—Evangeline Sanchez, Dean’s Executive Professor of Leadership, Roots School of Business
“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.”
—Sandra Cohen, bestselling author of Don’t Feast On Your Own
