Leadership & Communication Seminar this Sunday (Rome)

Sunday, May 20th from 8am-4pm. Effective Leadership & Business Communication

Our Dynamic professor from DePaul University starts with discussing different ways of communicating and looks at the four types of leadership styles people have (it shows you are a mix of the 4 but looks at your top 2) and how you can leverage your strengths and work with others that are the opposite style of yourself. It's a lot about emotional intelligence as well (EI) and how to lead in a way that includes others to help you be more effective.

The assessments classify four aspects of behavior by testing a person's preferences in word associations (compare with Myers-Briggs Type Indicator).

DISC is an acronym for:
Dominance – relating to control, power and assertiveness
Influence – relating to social situations and communication
Steadiness (submission in Marston's time) – relating to patience, persistence, and thoughtfulness
Caution (compliance in Marston's time) – relating to structure and organization

Dominance: People who score high in the intensity of the "D" styles factor are very active in dealing with problems and challenges, while low "D" scores are people who want to do more research before committing to a decision. High "D" people are described as demanding, forceful, egocentric, strong willed, driving, determined, ambitious, aggressive, and pioneering. Low D scores describe those who are conservative, low keyed, cooperative, calculating, undemanding, cautious, mild, agreeable, modest and peaceful.

Influence: People with high "I" scores influence others through talking and activity and tend to be emotional. They are described as convincing, magnetic, political, enthusiastic, persuasive, warm, demonstrative, trusting, and optimistic. Those with low "I" scores influence more by data and facts, and not with feelings. They are described as reflective, factual, calculating, skeptical, logical, suspicious, matter of fact, pessimistic, and critical.

Steadiness: People with high "S" styles scores want a steady pace, security, and do not like sudden change. High "S" individuals are calm, relaxed, patient, possessive, predictable, deliberate, stable, consistent, and tend to be unemotional and poker faced. Low "S" intensity scores are those who like change and variety. People with low "S" scores are described as restless, demonstrative, impatient, eager, or even impulsive.

Compliance:[3] People with high "C" styles adhere to rules, regulations, and structure. They like to do quality work and do it right the first time. High "C" people are careful, cautious, exacting, neat, systematic, diplomatic, accurate, and tactful. Those with low "C" scores challenge the rules and want independence and are described as self-willed, stubborn, opinionated, unsystematic, arbitrary, and unconcerned with details.
