Traits of Rare Leaders

Traits of Rare Leaders

There are rare things in life.

Rare events

Rare minerals and elements

Rare talents

Rare leaders

Rare DiSC profiles- (DiSC is an acronym Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance, or Cautiousness).

Are there commonalities between rare events, rare profiles and rare leaders? How would the DiSC profiles of rare leaders would fit with the finding of the rarity research? This is an attempt to provide answers to these questions.

Some view the rare earths聽(elements) as being so chemically similar to one another that collectively they can be considered as one element. To a certain degree that is correct鈥攁bout 25 percent of their uses are based on this close similarity鈥攂ut the other 75 percent of rare-earth usage is based on the unique properties of the individual elements.

Are rare leaders the same like rare elements? They may many common attributes among them, but mostly they have unique characters that move them out of the crowd. What are these unique characters?

What are the rare DiSC profiles and how close are they to great leaders? Rare profiles start mostly with D for dominance. Approximately, 10% of DiSC profiles start with D according to this source. Rarer is having DCs profiles. Dominance and being overly cautious and compliant are like fat and oil and so don鈥檛 mix easily. Rare leaders don鈥檛 belong to this rarity for they have qualities of different rarity. The most common profiles and exceeding 60% are those profiles that start with S for steadiness. These are the people who follow instructions and rules. Being so common excludes rare readers from profiles starting with S.聽

Rare leaders have deep core values that stand the test of time and aren鈥檛 affected or change easily like peripheral values. Great leaders have great traits or attributes that make them rare. One attribute does not fear making mistakes and taking responsibility for them.

Great leaders don鈥檛 fear setbacks because of their realization that life doesn鈥檛 go in a straight line.

Great leaders have unique skills and therefore are aware of the unique skills of their co-workers. Those leaders expect deviations and don鈥檛 deny their responsibility if deviance of path occurs. They don鈥檛 escape their responsibility and blame mistakes on others. They realize admitting mistakes don鈥檛 degrade them; to the opposite they gain them more respect and influence from their followers.

Great leaders are like the some rare fluorite mineral. The fluorite crystal's color is dictated by the way light interacts with the chemicals in it, and by how these are bonded in an orderly structure, or lattice. Leaders are transparent and shine with how they bond with the people inside them. They are crystal clear and shine because they care for the people who work for them.

Rare leaders are the rare specialty minerals in a group of general minerals. Gypsum is a common mineral. However; it has special type of mineral called Selenite with unique elongated crystals. Rare leaders are the same. They belong to their teams, but they shine with their uniqueness and form.

There is a special variety of limestone (calcite). This crystal variety has a unique property. Moving the calcite stone in and out of a person's field of vision causes them to see a distinctive double dot pattern. This property allowed for using this stone for navigation for they navigators found out that the distinctive double dot pattern lines up with the direction of the hidden sun. Rare leaders聽see the sun among different directions or pulling forces. They have intuition and knowledge and they guide their people in turbulent times.

Great leaders make sound decisions from the sand. Some unique arrangements of sand generate music upon applying pressure on them. So are great leaders and under pressure they have the ability to produce music under pressure.
Ali Anani, PhD

I incorporate an integrated DiSC proile. I leave it to you to deduct where rare leaders fall on it. I just want to add one more analogy. Most rare elements are trivalent. Rare leaders are trivalent. They are the leaders with high WPD Factor (Wonderment, Passion and Drive). It is the rare traits that make rare leaders.

Maybe my pride is jumping out of the box i try and keep it locked in. The .00001% is really a metaphor of preparedness. This edge is one i would train salespeople, and any personnel who had contact with our customer. Our outcomes were better than average but it was because we thought outside the box within the .00001% Marketing is about matching customers and providers. I always had a follow up question, Why would someone choose you? Market differentiation. This was the main .000001% question. Interestingly i saw the .00001% challenge and answers in your comment. You challenge yourself with in the first apportionment because you are aware of the associated fears with first contact. By merely looking from this perspective you have increased your odds of success exponentially. I am usually amazed when i confront folks with the question above they have no answer. This is when i install that .00001% factor. Just use a small amount of time and effort discovering and learning how to communicate yourself in your environment towards your purpose. Again i get the sense that i may be preaching to the choir. You seem to understand this concept naturally. Many do not.

After dealing with so many people over decades, I always go with my intuition and first impressions. {even though it is widely thought as not a good practice} I do the same answering multiple choice questions If I think about them or go back and change my first answer, I am usually wrong. A good teacher can often tell whem someone is honest, lying, lying by omission or evading. "The dog ate my homework" My response "I want to see the evidence of what you saved from the dog !" "My father's a lawyer and he's going to sue you." My response "That's fine all you will get is a big fat mortgage ! "

Yes first contact. But now as a psychologist the client's first appointment is very important. It's make or break a lot of the time due to the anxiety factor client's have about seeing a psychologist. A lot of people imagine a psychologist to be a combination of Freud & authoritarianism - judgement & pain. So many times a first appointment client will give a huge sigh of relief at the end and say the experience was nothing like they imagined ! I still think in this situation I think my success/ rapport is more than .000001%. But other factors are involved esp my previous experience with communication & my niche market is women esp women over 40yo. So it's very difficult to quantify. Yes great discussion Harvey Lloyd !

I believe we are looking at this a little to deeply when we consider we are concerned about profiles as it applies to communications. I believe we are all one or the other but have learned to adapt our conversation towards others. I would guess when we work from our own viewpoint of either it is somewhat excluding communications. When we work from the symbiotic relationship of each is needed its inclusive conversation. Great discussion here.

I would agree. In situations where you have days and weeks to develop a relationship the percentage moves higher, way higher. I was referring to the first contact and through relationship building. Attempting to under stand the other persons style is benefited by understanding the profiles and variable. Sounds like you would be a great teacher, and i would love to attend your classes.

"I always imagine that we all have a 50/50 chance of getting our point across to diverse groups. By giving a little thought to personalities and structure of communications we can increase our odds of success by .000001%." As a teacher I think for me it's more like 70/30. And that's with 5 or 6 classes of 30 students 5 days a week, 40 weeks a year. Admittedly learning is a continuum so by exam time the students have been able to grasp 70%. I had to consider "personalities and structure of communications " constantly. The style of communication I used influenced the outcome much more than .000001%. Probably as much as 30%. https://www.tsc.nsw.edu.au/tscnews/the-powerful-impact-of-good-teachers-on-student-achievement One of the main factors contributing to the success of students is the quality of the relationship and how the teacher builds this relationship. The same in psychology - Rapport counts for as much as 80% of client outcomes regardless of therapy mode. https://visible-learning.org/hattie-ranking-influences-effect-sizes-learning-achievement/

I really struggled with the myths. The author took the energy question and supported with evidence of social activities by both. We are all social creatures. The E/I question though doesn't exclude but rather discusses how we are social. But we can discuss any topic from any perspective. The whole E/I thing is either practical or academic. Mine is more experiential and practical. In the fundamental providing of food clothing and shelter we interact within social/professional environments. If you are a leader by choice or title then you have the added responsibilities of communicating in a way that you are understood. By understanding an E/I and the other letters that go with Jung's work we can learn through experience how best to communicate. I always imagine that we all have a 50/50 chance of getting our point across to diverse groups. By giving a little thought to personalities and structure of communications we can increase our odds of success by .000001%. I don't see the whole of personality profiling as much different than an auto mechanic diagnosing engine troubles through hearing and experience. Isolating the situation to an area and then performing detailed analysts. The author also discussed fears as one of the reviewed traits to show that the E/I is balanced. Again i would state its the how we do something not that we do or don't. Also i believe fear is more narrative specific. Meaning your environment has taught you what is safe and what is not. This doesn't really apply to the personality profile discussion under practical circumstances. In extremes i believe it applies directly and succinctly. But as i read some the comments opinions and thoughts folks were all over the place. How we apply things within a purpose is my understanding of practical.

We all do activities that demonstrate both traits. The real questions that focus us to a label is how we make decisions. Extroverts want to meet get everyone on the same page and move on. Introverts want to think through the variables of risk, people involved and what steps to take with the team to maximize engagement, then meet with the team. We all share in the endgame of purpose. The paths are different and we need both styles to help us balance thinking and action.

************************************************************************************************************************************** Some further IDEAS to ponder : ************************************************************************************************************************************** "Whether dominance is Consciously Introverted or Consciously Extroverted, each person has the ability to to behave in both ways The consciously dominant will be compensated by non-dominant behaviour" Self-Discovery the Jungian Way (RLE: Jung): The Watchword Technique By Michael Daniels "However, E/I is often seen as a kind of continuum, with people exhibiting a mix of introverted and extroverted tendencies 鈥 "ambiverts" fall somewhere in the middle of this continuum. Hans Eysenck's theory is the behaviors of introverts and extroverts are due to differences in cortical arousal (the speed and amount of the brain's activity). Compared with extroverts, introverts have naturally high cortical arousal, and may process more information per second." This article is a very good summary of the main points https://io9.gizmodo.com/the-science-behind-extroversion-and-introversion-1282059791?IR=T 5 Myths 1. Extroverts get energy from social interaction while introverts get energy from privately reflecting on their thoughts and feelings. 2. Introverts are plagued by public speaking anxiety 3. Extroverts are better leaders than introverts 4. Extroverts are better networkers than introverts 5.

"One question though is to what extent introverts may adapt to the external environment? " This is a very individual behaviour. There is a continuum not just Extroversion & Introversion. It depends on biology, neurology, family environment - learnt values, self esteem, determination, persistence, exposure, experience, practice, opportunity, risk taking and resilience. You can probably think of some more. SO on the Introversion scale, I am good at organisation, planning, routine, teaching, management & leadership. My childhood was very organised & I had a lot of responsibilities from a young age. Then I became a teacher which suited these traits & further reinforced them but wasn't really me. But on the Extroversion scale, I am good at public speaking, singing & acting, mixing with everyone & telling stories at parties, thinking up novel ideas for problem solving & events & communicating (I can talk to anyone even if we have no common language !) At 28, I backpacked around the world for 1 year. Down Under style ! At 40, I learnt to scuba dive & went on week long trips on the Great Barrier Reef. I also bought a 4WD and a sailboat, went camping, learnt to sail & joined a sailing club racing every Saturday. My female friends were incredulous. So @Ali Anani I am a bit of a mixture with dominant behaviour changing or adapting depending on responsibility, motivation and salary ! I hope that answers your question ?

Under normal circumstances we all adapt to our external environment. The question is how we adapt. I would need to restate your comment to answer the question. Internal energy is something we all have but where we focus the energy is what determines our styles. Introverts focus their energy in the subsystems of social activities, seeing the people, relationships and the story behind the story. Extroverts focus their energy on the next thing or activity while working in groups. The details of the group are not typically thought of by extroverts, they see the whole and its journey. Introverts expel energy within the activities while extroverts get energy from the activities. Introverts can have huge gas tanks to expel in social settings or very small ones. It all depends on the self awareness level. Extroverts can meditate and be introspective for periods, length of time is related to their gas tank size. Its not a good or bad thing, rather within our business lives when we encounter either style we just need to change our communications to make sure neither gets stuck. I do believe that both labels have become slurs from each side of the camp. When in reality the natural balance of humanity is sewn into the symbiotic relationship of both.

I guess I was thinking of an introvert as a quiet, shy & retiring stereotype - " a negative moniker" "When in reality the two labels describe your energy source." this is a great description & easy to understand. So I agree when looking at it psychologically - at personality traits I have a lot more introvert traits than extrovert ones. But at time I can be a very extroverted introvert ?

Introverts make the best teachers. We live in a extroverted world so naturally introvert seems to be a negative moniker. When in reality the two labels describe your energy source. Introverts derive energy from inner self and quit time and extroverts from interacting with others. I love participating in what extroverts claim to be the only way of life. It just drains me, it doesn't energize me. I am introvert and my wife is extrovert. We attend social functions and she comes home ready to start a new day, i need quiet non-verbal activities. If i could be general here. Extroverts want to engage folks at the entertainment level, Introverts generally want to engage at the personal level. So in my experience the best teachers have always been introverts, they prepare based on learning not just the general fun factor. Based on some of your comments and communication style i would think that you are an introvert. A person who contemplates their impact on students and wants to know the best approach, and finds it. Introverts rule the world, silently. When an extrovert gets in trouble they always call an introvert to find solutions:)

"of those who don't feel they can speak for themselves." This is my passion with DiSC, Meyers-Briggs and other personality summaries. In most cases folks cant speak for themselves because of fear or pride issues. Mine was both. Its best to keep your mouth closed and appear the fool than open it and remove all doubt. I was usually silent. But in my newly found business i realized that silence plaid into the squeaky wheel gets the oil. I was a wall flower. The journey of understanding my profile and that each of have one was the beginning of change in my silence (or explosive anger, silence has very thin walls of containment.) Now when i see folks who are great people but cant find their voice, i want to help. Naturally the journey i took is what i recommend and its merely a first step. The first recognition is usually that communications by all is fulfilling a need. It could be purpose driven or personally driven. We can communicate in any setting if we can identify the need that needs filling. If through communications you understand the other(s) are seeking Lose-Win we can show them win-win and many other variations. When i see or read people who have an aggressive style i laugh and have pity. I realize that they have chiseled an existence from stone and it requires a very deep and committed communications style to even exist. Sad. Also if they are being aggressive with me i am giving someone else a break. The fun part with aggressive speaking/writing folks is to challenge them in a way that aggression wont work. Fun.

rare elements are mostly trivalent. They have unique properties. Rare leaders are also trivalent and so they have unique properties. Trivalent in that their WPD Factor gives them the trivalency. Three fators that make them unique. Wonderment, passion and drive in different mixes that make great leaders. They need to wonder about new info, iddas and processes and not reject them. They don't stay in their comfort zone and follow new ideas with pride and passion with enough drive. They aren't fearful of them. Is this good enough Joanne Gardocki?

PART 2 Good, Great & Excellent teachers are passionate about their subject/s They are like fluorite "transparent and shine with how they bond with their students. Crystal clear and shining because they care for the students who they work for. I do think that a certain personality suits teaching - not just dominance and influence but quick thinking, flexible, ability to say "I don't know - why don't you Google it tonight and tell us next lesson", humourous, fairness, consistent rules, real engagement with each of the 30 students in a class with their outside activities as well. Good, Great & Excellent teachers are like Selenite with unique elongated crystals. They also work together with their faculty colleagues but they also shine with their uniqueness and form. Many of the teachers I know/have known are/were Excellent Leaders without even trying ! I think they are born not made. Honed, shaped and faceted over time too.

Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee "I feel what goes into the makeup of rare leaders is they don't dwell on their greatness but are more in awe of the growth of those they lead. They don't expect awards for their success but rather enjoy rewards reaped by those under their leadership." Many of my teacher friends who have taught for 20 or 30 years are just like this. Art teachers love it when their students win awards for painting and photography competitions Language teachers love it when their students win awards for essays and speaking competitions English teachers love it when their students win awards for short stories and poetry competitions "No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave."- Calvin Coolidge" This is also very true for teachers - they give so much for often nothing in return not even "Thankyou" or no tangible reward other than the success of their students. The pay rate definitely does not reflect a teacher's bag of magic crystals !

It is in small differences (to quote you 0.0001%) that may inflate with time and make the huge difference. Humans are complex and therefore subject to the the butterfly effects. DiSC will help our words be understood. It is a communication tool. You have a sharp mind my friend.

Keep in mind though that as leaders we have the overcome and adapt features. The second law of thermodynamics is everything is in a state of decay, unless a force is acted upon the point of interest. Leaders are that force and they know that momentum is what keeps decay away. Understanding DiSC is how we create that momentum through communications, therefore extending the cycle of decay and need. We act on decay with our mouth first, then resources. DiSC will help our words be understood. Weather we can't act on but only predict. We can reduce human losses or material losses but we cant exact momentum and change the course or severity. WIthin leadership we have that opportunity. Not always successful but the opportunity does exist. My theory has always been the playing field is equal. Everyone has the chance to participate. The advantage goes, not necessarily the win to those who better understand the environment and players on the field before entering the competition. I am alway seeking a POV that gives me the .00001% advantage.

You are a mind reader Harvey Lloyd. Yes, many leaders may become the source of risk. I love your stepwise approach to tell if the risk originates from the leader or not. More importantly is your focusing on the DiSC profile as a source of wisdom. This point has rarely been mentioned and it is a topic on its own.. So much to learn from your comments.

Thank you. You are correct. In fact, I find similarity between weather forecast and business forecast. Predictability is only approximate for short times, but it fails after a short while. i haven't firmed up my conclusions. I am still exploring. Luckily, we may predict tornadoes with some time span to reduce their risks, but we can't eliminate their damage. Volcanos are more wicked and we have to mitigate their risk early on just in case they erupt. Even reducing risks may call for different strategies. Thank you Harvey Lloyd for highlighting the risk factor.

From a outside looking in perspective at leadership we can use DiSC to predict a future from a very static perspective. If i look in the window today at leadership i can form a risk analysis based on my DiSC understanding. But next week i should see something totally different when looking back in the same window. This would indicate that DiSC profiles have gained new wisdom over the week and everything looks different from the window. Over the course of a few weeks and window watching we should watch as the profiles work in a trust and understanding environment and evolve. However if week after week we see the same style, no evolution of the team we can probably find the center of the issue within the leader who is serving their profile and not the purpose. There are many reasons folks serve their own profile. Don't know any better, job atmosphere from top down is fear based, their need for safety comes first and then yours. Probably many more. I do belive this is why the C-Suite coaching industry is growing. Looking forward to your next post, please tag me.

I don't believe that DiSC is prophetic in and of itself. But as leaders we always find ourselves trying to reduce the risk within our choices. Sometimes with limited information. Because we are the leader we must pull out our crystal ball and begin to align information past experience and team profiles to make up for what we don't know. Within this context yes the DiSC can be a part of that prophecy. DiSC gives us one clear prophetic review of someone as the apply to whatever purpose the team may have. There are only two points we can observe, a person is operating from their specific profile needs or they are seeking to identify all of the profile needs that fit the purpose. The latter will almost always succeed over the former. I call these out of control letters. They blind us to purpose and we work inside a limited sandbox. There are applications where this is warranted. Police, firemen, emergency personnel airline pilots, doctors etc. Most of these folks make pretty poor entrepreneurs and leaders accept in leading their profession. Inside an organization though the letters gone wild folks are mavericks. They can help get things done real fast but can also destroy corporate culture. SOmetimes we need a maverick in the organization, to shake up stogy processes and show us we have become complacent. But a short leash is almost mandatory. In considering your next post i would propose that DiSC is one tool in a leader's box of predicting risk factors in going forward.

"I did have a few questions, sir. Is this score constant or does it keep changing over a person's lifetime? Is there any way to improve or is it ok to have a very high DI score?" The word dominance is misleading in what it equates to in real life. Definitions can get us in trouble. Dominance would equate to fearless within the unknown, enjoys new risk, challenged by tough questions and wants the answers. I believe we some times equate the word dominance as over people. To me D's who practice win-win are selfless, fearless servants who are out front serving others. This is the mindset of s successful D. I believe our letters if we answer the questions from a perspective of leadership in a specific role will pretty much stay the same. What changes is how we use the letters. A truly successful D realizes that they first destabilize S's and seem lofty to C's. D's mature by listening to these two letters and tempering their communications to include these attributes. The I is a great companion letter as long as with influence we are good listeners. Feedback is needed for the DI to form their position and execute around the team. The situations change with new people and risks. So listening and finding a launch point becomes necessary during the change. In all successful endeavors a leader has taken their own profile and married to all the letters and skills of the players on their team. There are no bad combinations just bad use of any combination as exclusive.

As we share the same DiSC profiles, we mostly have some shared attributes Proma \ud83d\udc1d Nautiyal. While D signals power I signals your tendency for using facts and information to convince others. I tend to hate controls or regulations. The proof is I run a company and I eliminated controls such as attendance time. I love change and thrive on its challenges. I am more into generating ideas and less interested in seeing them implemented. For this reason and knowing that it is hard to change drastically I tend to bridge the gap. I employ one person at least who is a doer and cares for finishing jobs on time. I need to know my weaknesses, accept them and then find a suitable solution. You see I like facts and being aware of my deficiencies and accepting them I look for employees who are able to meet my flaws. Nobody is perfect. We get closer to perfection by knowing what we need.

Thank you for your kind comment, Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. I went ahead and took another DiSC profile test from another site, altogether. I waited 24 hours to ensure I don't have the same answers in my head as the last test's.

I feel like I know myself better now. It really helped me introspection. It feels even better to know that I share the same profile as you (very encouraging)! I did have a few questions, sir.

Unfortunately your survey is probably the same results today. I have found many leaders, in title, who communicate based on how good they feel their presentation performance was from their own perspective. I always ask the same question of these leaders, if you presented that you wanted all spaces outfitted with red trash cans, could you get it? I often give presentations, but i measure the quality by feedback. People disagree, ask questions sidebar conversations concerning the topic, i know i hit the head of understanding. I see this poor understanding of communications in a wide array of companies. Just because one speaks doesn't mean someone heard. Good points.

I cant remember where i read or heard, "Within a conversation there are two process happening, one person speaking another listening. To assume that what was said and what was heard were the same thing is the source of communication failure. In some deep studies of body language and how we associate understanding with certain reflections, its amazing how we know someone didnt hear what we said. When i am not paying the attention i should to my grandchildren or really a staff member, i am amazed at how their voice goes up, words get emphasized. In critical path communications my eyes, ears and all senses are based on what someone hears not what i am saying. I find with some staff i must include yellow as part of the conversation if i want blue in return. DiSC helps me determine this process. The study of behaviour, character and profiles really opened my eyes to the amazing world we live in.

A great synopsis of the comments and post. The irony is the evaluation of the opposite of your well stated comment. Can we really lead from i know it all position? A leader may know their market and what it takes to get there, but will require everyone on the team to arrive at the same conclusion. Also there is a little narcissism inside the leader that thinks they can arrive alone. Being a leader we may come upon a light that we need to shine on some dark areas of our growth and development. We can't bring the light to the team without showing them the way you found the light. Each member will come from a different tunnel where light may be needed. A good leader can use time, communications and opportunity to help each find the light he/she has found. Then we can move forward with all skills on deck and arrive at the same time.

I feel what goes into the makeup of rare leaders is they don't dwell on their greatness but are more in awe of the growth of those they lead. They don't expect awards for their success but rather enjoy rewards reaped by those under their leadership. "No person was ever honored for what he received.

I was fortunate in my early years to have folks who were willing to engage with me at a win-win level. Even though i wanted to press a win-loss agenda. They showed me how to engage on the field of battle with precision and execution all around win-win. No i don't always win, but i know when i enter with win-loss on my mind we will all lose according to the original goal. Knowing win-win is the only answer when we are forced onto the field is challenging. Sometimes i have very purposefully showed a win-loss profile. New i would loss and so would they, but felt the group or individual needed feel the bite of the loss to know that they didn't own the world. I could afford to lose in those cases. I am glad i was able to give some food for thought. If anything when we find ourselves before a battlefield not of our choosing, we can discuss the unfairness, enter to win at all cost or set forth a goal that at the end of the battle we can all live with the outcome. Each of these choices has consequences and varying degrees of success markers. But it is a choice. Choose wisely and stick to the plan. If it is a lesson to be taught and you are willing to loose, then be the junkyard dog all the way up to the fence. If the outcome is more what we are focused on then don't lose sight of it no matter how many distractions present themselves. Add the pieces to the puzzle and regroup and begin anew. Courage, perseverance and honor will be tested in all choices.

I don't disagree with your analogy of those we find ourselves in the arena with sometimes. SItuations may seem innocent enough in their beginning but sometimes twist into exposing true intentions of others. I have found myself in partnerships that advanced our goals but in the end my partners wanted something more. Sometimes we don't choose the battles we find ourselves within. But when we are drawn into the battle we need every edge to participate at our best. DiSC is a way to understand peoples personal requirements. Win-Win is not you getting what you want and they getting what they want. Win-Win is the process of showing others how to win so that you can too. Its a different perspective, but truly works when we engage with others through understanding (DiSC), and offering varying outcomes that favor you too in the end, (Win_Win) This is no easy task. The situations i found myself in i saw as morally repugnant and self centered as the folks exercised certain privileges they thought they had. But in the end they were the gatekeepers of where i needed to pass. The extreme answers on the opposing ends notwithstanding. Fighting for win win through understanding each side is the best solution to stay on the field of play. Once you reach impasse then money, title or position will determine the victor.

Given your points, if i may, the DiSC profiling process helps us understand the environment we find ourselves. Crooked folks are trying to do something we sense to be immoral. DiSC points out how they are doing it within their own personality. Most importantly what is satisfying within them. This is where we can engage, or not, its choice, but should we decide to, we can better communicate their out of control letter can be satisfied differently. I have endured such events as you have discussed and the hopeless helpless concerns don't set well with me. If its happening and i am to die within it, i will be on the battlefield of decision. DiSC offers me an opportunity to better understand the players and for those who in a destructive format (Crooked) i can use their letters to my advantage.

I do believe we can see a future within any leader that their dominant letter is out of control. D, out of control will subdue all in its path and go the extremes to do it. I, out of control will present materials ad nauseum without any thought to efficacy of presentation, S, out of control will look like D when at all cost they must bring stability back to their environment, at the exclusion of all other goals. C, out of control will argue facts and chase squirrels seeking to insure that whatever the goal is we are factual. In essence as we enter situations, meetings or goal change, we will see the dominant letter in the flash responses. Hypothetically, could you imagine coming home to your family and expressing you we are moving to Texas, USA. I believe that experiment would have exposed every dominant letter within the family. In dominant letters out of control the letter will be served first then the goal. From a leader's perspective you now have two issues. A team member who has been activated in their dominant letter and the lack of their input for your teams use until such time as they get satisfied. I do believe that when our dominant letters are over the top in control of our POV, it is a self fulfilling prophecy of failure in some fashion. When we see leaders that realize the diversity of personalities will be used in achievement, we don't know how, but we do know they will achieve some version of the goal.

I believe your chart and with some focus on humanity answers your question. I can state my goal and even extend into some of the achievement execution processes. But your graph dictates that i can't know the journey of the start to finish of any goal laid out. Other people and forces are involved. Without getting to political. Mr. Trump has some very good policy doctrine. Unfortunately he is not reading your great posts and concerning himself with communicating these ideals to the public. So his promises are pretty empty. I am not sure how many people he thinks will follow after calling them names. Leadership for me, is the compass that you look at and start the troops marching. Most importantly though as you march with the troops listening and learning about the journey. I don't believe the troops care about changing course when they are part of the decision to change. In other words you have communicated through your profile so they could hear and provide quality feedback. Like my family member though any letter can be in a position of leadership. But when you project your letter on everyone else you find you are constantly trying to make everyone your dominant letter. I have a dominant letter but i need the other three on deck and operational so i can see through every view to steer my company. One of the hardest lessons to learn was that my letter is not the right/only one:)

Glad to read your wonderful comment. I don't know how young you are dear Tausif Mundrawala, but certainly you possess leadership traits. I am the one to ask you now. What do you think you traits are that you managed to discover what is wrong where the older members of your family failed to spot it. Obviously you are on influence because you tend to prove things by results. Did you ever take the DiSC profile test? If yes, I wonder what is was. Surely, one of your skills is adaptation. You adapted to extroverts and introverts. This is a huge challenge and your adaptability of leading style apparently helped you a lot. You have a leadership story to tell my friend.

Part 1, The story A family member brought a new aluminum boat to fish out of and experienced a less than satisfying experience. Each time he came out to his boat there was standing water in all the corners where engineering had designed seats, accessories and other elements of the boat. He spoke to the dealer they were told by the manufacturer where to bore additional holes. Unfortunately one of the holes bored through a drain line that has access to the exterior of the boat. So he goes fishing and he is standing in water and wondering why his boat is sinking, he investigates and sees water bubbling from one of the newly bored holes. He is in a customer service quandary. How does he approach this fix that now needs a major fix? This entire story to try and tie DiSC into our daily lives. My family member is a high S and right now he is highly unstable.

Part 2, Our engagement We discussed the points of cause and effect and then began discussing the approach to communicate what he wanted out of the major repair. Interestingly he was projecting onto the dealership their need for stability and what he would be requesting. I don't know that the person he is speaking to is a S or not, but my family member in his solution was assuming he is. DiSC is important in considering to keep us from exposing our assumptions onto others, they will misinterpret our intentions. I was amazed at how my family members profile was applied to everyone else involved in the situation, even to the point he became argumentative with me in describing a POV that we insure he had a successful outcome. Interestingly he continued to give each person's argument to solution from his own profile. DiSC introduces us to the POV that everyone has a different position within the same goal. My recommendation, be able to express himself to the dealer and manufacturer in a way that they new what he wanted in a professional way. Get feedback of what they were willing to perform, and then identify what their purpose or concerns are with meeting the goal. This was difficult for him to perform as he had already formed conclusions based on his own profile, again assuming they are just like him. DiSC offers us that space between stimulus and response, when time permits, the opportunity to explore what each player in this scenario of customer service is looking for within their own goals. Then we can respond.

Your comments Harvey Lloyd brought this idea to my mind. Can we predict the future behaviors of leaders from there DiSC profiles? For example, can we tell if the leader saying something today he/she shall act accordingly in the future? many leaders turned egoist and they claim every achievement is theirs instead of making their followers feel it was theirs. Are there holes in DiSC profiles that make us make such predictions? I don't claim I have the answer, but I am pondering on this question.

I read your comment and answered with out really catching the last phrase, "finding their place". If we can use the phrase within a situational context rather than a sense of permanency. My, our place is different when the goals, roles and people change. We do need to find our place within the specific context. But as CityVP \ud83d\udc1d Manjit discussed on ap previous post. We dont want to get pigeon holed by our letters and make them a self fulfilling prophecy. The family dinner table is where the figurines are constantly moving as we grow to understand our families different environmental forces and our need to influence choices. The professional world may be a little more stable in the figurines moving but requires constant adjustment as market forces, new people and feedback present new challenges. Situations are dynamic and our need to be dynamic within them has never been greater. A pigeon holed profile will meet the dynamic situations in a very static way, usually causing friction. The greatest way to retain the dynamic POV is to understand the players, goals and the variables that will make up success in this situation. DiSC is one way to get the players on a chart and understand their communication styles, and , big and, reduce misinterpretation of communications.

Absolutely. But i would suggest that once we look at a situation and meet new people within the variables then we see the graphic differently. The graphic represents a way to not engage with the same way we did last time. But rather to reset the players, pieces and communications differently. For me, i sense we can choose our point of view (POV). Now others would have me believe our POV is ingrained via our narrative. DiSC offers us a starting place to understand and label things in our mind. This relabeling may or may not give you a different POV. But its a start.

I was a little confused at the context of your point so if i have missed it please let me know. I would suggest that Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee was pointing out that some people are born as natural leaders. What they do with it, from manic to great citizen of the humanities. is subjective to their environment/narrative. I was not one of these people. Any leadership ability i heave has been through trail and error and replacing my narrative with skills that help me see situations better. DiSC is one of those tools that once practiced your eyes start to open to the "matrix" of POV's you are encountering. Most importantly the ability within leadership to redirect the "Matrix" into a goal purpose whereby everyone can be successful is the end game. Sometimes you miss the effort or ques and sometimes you nail it. Under each of these conditions the journey is always circular and with each circle we gain new information. I believe great leaders understand this circular pattern and realize some journey's are short and sweet and others are a little more challenging.

Servant Leadership is a perspective that keeps our mind focused on the goal or main thing. "I" serve within settings and situations. DiSC is a tool that helps me serve. When different personalities express themselves, they are looking for something, not just within the goal. They are also looking to serve their dominate letter. DiSC offers us a chance to reframe our language so we might expose what Win-Win looks like to the individual or group. DiSC is not a tool of accuracy but rather a guiding map that will lead communications from where they are to where they need to be. I can serve in this navigation.

Wow....Harvey Lloyd, both your comments below have really helped me! In your view, is it possible for the DiSC graph to become an ever-flowing chart? Like the figurines you mention; can or do they move within the circle as they grow, until they find their place?

Ali 馃悵 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

#96
Absolutely agree with you Harvey Lloyd. If we were to plot the DiSC profiles on the graph we shall end up with a scattered plot. When a leader realizing this fact one of his/her great options is to listen and pausing before talking.

Ali 馃悵 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

#95
You know Harvey Lloyd that I am thrilled by the comments this buzz has enjoyed. DiSC help us at least figure where we stand. It is our natural selves. We can't change situations, but we can change our positions to adapt with the situation we find ourselves immersed into. DiSC profiles vary greatly, and we can't use the same leadership style when meeting different leading roles. A great leader understands the challenge and is ready to modify or adjust with patience. Like a captain on a ship the leader may find the ship in difficult situations, but still with the same crew. The leader's' ability to read his crew and change their roles and his style of leadership is what makes a leader. So many questions to think about.

The graphic should be viewed as a whole. Not just where you are or fit during an event. The graphic is really a good perspective when viewing that meeting you have to attend today. If we could take figurines and place each person on the graph and understand how folks are motivated then we can lead with great communication skills. By knowing how to reframe so each letter can hear your actual words as you intended is the goal of DiSC. I have always thought that DiSC or other profiling applications help us in being authentic by teaching us "hearing" communications and reduce our speaking. I know for myself i need folks to hear what i am saying. DiSC offers a little edge in insuring that folks hear. This doesn't mean agreeing. But rather means they heard and can speak to the facts and not from their filters.

Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee you have really drawn some great comments here and some challenging questions. I wanted to state after reading that there are those rare leaders who seem to be born and naturally lead. Like anything "how" they use this gift is very subjective. I really wanted to point out that we are all leaders at some level, Mom's, Dads, friends and professionals are require headship skills at some point. For me leadership is that junction where someone or a business goal is in turmoil and we wish to assist in a course correction. We may or may not have the answer or solution. Like anything else we can jump in with our subjective narrative (CityVP \ud83d\udc1d Manjit Comment) and engage the situation or we can assess the situation and determine the best course of action. DiSC is one of those tools. Knowing our own letters and then quickly assessing those letters engaged in the turmoil can help us merge into a leadership role. I wanted to also state that DiSC offers us more space between stimulus response. Certainly the issue itself can open or close this gap. But in leadership one of the assessments is the time variable, they use it well. Finally DiSC is a starting point, the headwaters of a journey of understanding. Within even the lightest of social settings communications is happening. People are empowered, challenged or changed by our communications. DiSC is really a method of learning how to reframe communications so folks hear what we actaully said.

Dear Lisa Vanderburg loves the magic of fractals. If we are not self-similar to leadership operating within, then we resort to conversations about life being out of balance - and it is too late to address imbalance, unless we trace back to root and start again anew - and this renewal or this renaissance is within us - how can it be any other place unless we surrender to those who want to lead us. That is what makes servant leadership so different, these type of leaders don't want to lead us, they serve to unleash the freedom that most likely we are the prison guards to. Command and control requires models, but true leadership requires humanity - and humanity is not a one-time deal, it must be cultivated and renewed over and over again - it has its own breath and the freshness of that breath is entirely the flow that emits from our daily renewal. That is why we create an idolatry to leadership and why instead of celebrating diversity, we end up labeling life and then make adjustments to these patterns. That is how leadership books are still sold yet true leadership is within us.

Dear Lisa Vanderburg the starting base is how we are lead within and the first fruit of that is sown in our own home, but for sure it takes collaboration to see the first wellspring of leadership to be our own home. As the circle of our leadership extends outwards into the workplace, the educational centers, the commercial centers, the civic life, the infrastructure of our existence, that is why Milos Djukic loves the magic of fractals. If we are not self-similar to leadership operating within, then we resort to conversations about life being out of balance - and it is too late to address imbalance, unless we trace back to root and start again anew - and this renewal or this renaissance is within us - how can it be any other place unless we surrender to those who want to lead us.

That is why we create an idolatry to leadership and why instead of celebrating diversity, we end up labeling life and then make adjustments to these patterns. That is how leadership books are sold, that is how we make money from leadership - and where power manifests itself as a profitable motive, such people do not like the table turner. They did not over 2000 years ago, and how power continues to manifest itself, not much as changed. Yet that change is within us.

Within DiSC there is your dominate score and your adaptive score. Dominate meaning this is your bent in how to proceed forward in situations. Your adaptive score is what you have learned within the other profiles that companions with your dominate score and you have adapted. The tests are somewhat unwieldy in their nature. In taking any personality test you need to almost commit to a situation. Such as family, professional, or you can be more specific such as high risk decision making. Each situation will offer some variance in your outcome.

I always feel empathy + enforcing discipline & compliance is key when it comes to being an effective leader.

The thoughts stretch to get a good workout bringing out all the rare gem like ideas that should be shared and executed. Rare leaders need to have elasticity. During the stretching and compressing stage of their leadership path, they need remember they are rare and need to be elastic. They should not lose their uniqueness and what made them rare in the first place. If they don't return back to their normal self after being stretched/compressed they lose their individuality and cannot be a rare good leader. A rare leader is one who is elastic and filled with the WPD factor. I am fortunate to interact with these gems on beBee and learn from them :)

Your perspective of integrating elements in nature with human nature and organizing your concepts through the use of charts that convey qualities in style, are thought provoking to say the least. The humble contribution I can make to this discussion taking place with your readers, would be to remark that the factor that makes this work so challenging is the "human" factor. You write, "Are rare leaders the same like rare elements? They may many common attributes among them, but mostly they have unique characters that move them out of the crowd." You highlight here (yes I will introduce a paradox) how what may be considered "common" can also be experienced as "rare" depends on what a person does with that element or attribute.

The rare leader is holisitc, understands context is evidence based but can make accurate decisions based on limited information. The rare leader first learns what other leaders learn but then unlearns what other leaders learn and maintain as a formulaic view.

The power of great influence comes not only from the intellect but also the recognition and stabilization of the emotional system...Not only are we responsible for our actions, we are also responsible for our thoughts...People create unnecessary suffering when they by-pass their emotions as having any influence on the outcome of their circumstances...By the power of our intentions do we create...so before making any decisions it is best to check in with our 'senses' about them and be very clear in our thoughts....Intention=Thought=Creation...and we will reap what we sow;-)

- I fully concur with your comment. There are unique traits for rare leaders, but there are some common traits among them. It takes brevity to acknowledge responsibility. If a leader fails to accept this then all his other leadership qualities are lost as well. I recall a leader described by his team as genius in creating great ideas. But all the team members agree he only told twisted stories. Not a single member of the team stayed with that leader. Likewise leaders who fail to accept responsibility. I am almost certain that you had your experience with a leader who did the same for I read "hidden pain" in your comment. To be a leader is to be passionate about people. To make results the sole factor in how to treat people is a call for disintegration. You are spot on my friend.
