As you may know, the Everything DiSC Work of Leaders Profile and classroom training was developed for leaders of all leadership styles, industries and experience levels in order to help us all reach our full leadership potential. Thousands of organizations have already incorporated the leadership training into their organizational development plans with overwhelmingly positive results.

The Work of Leaders book is all about accessibility! It was important to get the Work of Leaders ideology and success out to the masses. The creators of DiSC and Everything DiSC® compiled six extensive years’ worth of research and spoke with thousands of successful leaders to develop this easy-to-use, effective leadership book: The Work of Leaders: How Vision, Alignment, and Execution Will Change the Way You Lead. 

I think this quote sums it up best:
Learning to be a leader is like learning to be a great athlete, musician or artist. It’s a capability that develops over time, through trial and error, hard work and practice. Leadership is learned by doing, not simply by taking notes in a classroom
- Stanford Graduate School of Business
Leadership is about constantly growing and developing yourself and your staff. It’s a journey that never really ends, with small and large successes (and failures) along the way.

The Work of Leaders was written with just that in mind. The book is ideal for leaders of any stage or experience level looking for immediate results through coaching and best practices. Even the most experienced leaders will be able to learn more about being flexible in their leadership style as they continue to learn about best practices and adapt them to everyday life.

How does it work?

The Work of Leaders is based on three equally important responsibilities in leadership:

1. Crafting a Vision (V): Imagining an improved future state that the group will make a reality through its work

2. Building Alignment (A): Getting to the point where everyone in the group understands and is committed to the direction

3. Championing Execution (E): Ensuring that the conditions are present for the imagined future to be turned into reality

All three of these responsibilities (commonly referred to VAE) reflect leadership best practices that all successful leaders have adapted to their leadership methods.

Readers will not only learn about leadership best practices but exactly how to reach their goals with details on how exactly to craft a vision, build alignment and champion execution. The writers did an excellent job of combining passion with helpful insight and real-world case scenarios and techniques. It’s definitely a must-read for those of you leadership nerds like me!

I’d love to get the word out about this new book and how powerful it can be paired with the Work of Leaders profile assessment.
