Leading People Who Don’t Want to Follow?

Posted on 2018-07-12

5 tips to help leaders to lead unwilling followers Is a leader still a leader if there are no followers? This isn’t a riddle as much as a reality for some leaders who don’t have people willing to follow them. Is it them or me? This is the question leaders ask themselves that can bring about change and solutions. While the answer is not always clear, and both may be true in some cases (inexperienced leadership and unwilling participants) the responsibility is on the leader to get everyone on-board and excited about moving forward together in the same direction.

Matching career to your DISC personality

Posted on 2018-07-02

What do you want to be when you grow up? I think back to my childhood and the expectations of adults to answer this question. Not only from family members, but then the hard-skills assessments thrown at me in middle school, then high-school, and even again in college as I was struggling to figure out where I truly belonged.

Business leaders today have a lot on their plate, maybe more now than any other time in history. As both blessing and burden, today there’s a plethora of resources (theoretical and practical) at a leader’s disposal to help him or her manage, engage, and build teams.

Know yourself to grow yourself

Posted on 2018-06-21

I received a fortune recently that reads, “Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see.” This proverb perfectly describes how our observable, human behavior is a direct reflection of the nuances that make up our internal beings – how we think, our core values, what motivates us, etc. These internal makings are not always visible to us and unless the unknown is made known, we can be blind to what is holding us back from reaching our true potential. It is our human nature to be on a constant quest for self-discovery and happiness, and sometimes we need to utilize tools to help us realize where to start.

More “?” and Less “!” As a coach, your clients often look to you for solutions to their problems. Maybe your client’s business is struggling to grow, or maybe they are growing too fast and need help re-organizing.

A Positive Approach to Personality

Posted on 2018-05-29

  As someone who has embodied many aspects of the high S and C personality dimensions, I feel qualified to say that our more extroverted high I-style counterparts may have a slight advantage over S and C styles when it comes to staying positive. What we can learn from these DISC personality styles is considerable.
