'The Self-Aware Leader' is a rich topic of challenging questions that asks leaders to identify their leadership style.

What behaviors do they exhibit that strengthen their relationships with their direct reports and which don't? How does the way they communicate help or hinder work output? How does their style boost or hamper morale? The self-aware leader can answer these questions because they've taken the time to reflect on how their actions influence those around them. They have received the coaching and mentoring needed to continue to grow, and they are not afraid to hold themselves accountable for the outcomes. They don't resist feedback on their performance.

In fact, they seek it out. They get coaching. They are introspective. They learn their strengths and shortfalls so that they can maximize the former and minimize the latter. Then they learn what the preferences are of the people they lead. When they figure out where they differ from each other, they learn to adapt to them.

They find ways to not let what's different become what's averse. Moreover, they learn what they share in common with those they work with so that they can make the right connections and bring about greater understanding. This topic has proven useful to participants because it highlights the value each style brings to any given organization, and it helps those who are unaware to recognize how some of their behaviors sabotage their efforts.

With Everything DiSC as the main concept to teach these differences and commonalities, participants will learn the diversity of styles that exist on any given team. For those who have never studied this model, they will find it fascinating and enlightening. Together with well-crafted stories and scenarios that are relatable, participants will be able to see themselves in these situations and descriptions. The more they can relate, the more likely they are to react to the information in a positive way. The goal is to have those participants rethink how they show up in relationships.

For those who are not likely to take responsibility for their actions, this topic helps them to see the information provided not as a threat or an accusation, but as important and helpful input that will lead them to resolving personality differences. When people don't understand each other, they are more likely to misunderstand each other. These misunderstandings cause conflict because they are steeped in assumptions and biases. Helping them to realize that neither side is essentially wrong but just different promotes better discussions about differences and how to find what each side shares in common.

The leader who is self-aware is able to express their preferences and help those who report to them to understand those preferences-for example, how they communicate, handle conflict, and make decisions.

With greater knowledge about the motivators and stressors of each style, the best ways to connect with each, ways to direct and delegate to each style, and how to engage employees based on their individual preferences, leaders can treat each person how they want to be treated.

Why you should Attend:

The information shared in this session will help reduce conflict and tensions that can arise when leaders miss the mark in meeting the needs of those they lead. Leaders who lack self-awareness often fall short in connecting with the diverse personalities that make up their team. They tend to treat everyone the same-the way the leader wants to be treated. But to fully connect with their coworkers and direct reports, a good leader knows that they must treat people the way each individual wants to be treated.

Making the necessary adjustments to keep employees engaged and thriving at work are often overlooked by leaders. Their blind spots don’t allow them to see the miscues, shortfalls, and blunders they may be committing that compromise the relationship every leader needs to build with each team member.

Leaders on all levels should attend this session to broaden their scope of knowledge regarding how to effectively lead the potentially dozen different style types in any given workplace. Because of the varying perceptions of each style, it is easy for leaders to be misunderstood and for them to misunderstand the actions of their direct reports. These misunderstandings lead to false assumptions regarding a person’s intentions and actions. Learning the various styles and associated common behaviors could reduce conflicts that erupt from a rush to judgment. Greater understanding of self and others will help leaders create a more motivating environment. Without introspection and reflection, leaders run the risk of alienating great employees and negatively impacting morale in the workplace
