The Book

The Work of Leaders: How Vision, Alignment, and Execution Will Change the Way You Lead
By Julie Straw, Mark Scullard, Susie Kukkonen, and Barry Davis

“The Work of Leaders is a bright gem of a book. In a crystal clear and to-the-point style, the authors make leadership instantly accessible with a memorable model, rock solid fundamentals, original research, compelling stories, and highly practical tips for putting the principles to immediate use. There are invaluable lessons on every page, and you’ll enjoy discovering each one. We highly recommend The Work of Leaders to anyone who aspires to make extraordinary things happen in organizations.”

—JIM KOUZES AND BARRY POSNER,
authors of the bestselling The Leadership Challenge

The culmination of six years of research and development, The Work of Leaders presents a simple structure that neatly captures the complexity of contemporary leadership. The goal of this book is to make this wealth of leadership insight accessible to anyone who wants better results as a leader.

About the Work of Leaders Book

Recognizing that leadership is one of the most studied areas of organizational development, as well as one of the most requested topics for training, Wiley set out to make sense of published theories and information about leadership. The goal of The Work of Leaders is to make this wealth of leadership insight accessible to anyone who wants better results as a leader.

The VAE Process
The work that leaders do—the work that really matters—is boiled down to three areas: crafting a vision, building alignment, and championing execution. Vision, Alignment, and Execution are “magic words.” They strike a chord that turns the goal of leadership into tangible steps.

With passion and insight, the authors draw from the best-known leadership authorities, while leveraging their unparalleled access to data from thousands of leaders and followers and their connections to hundreds of organizational development consultants. Interwoven with humor and drawing from real-world scenarios, The Work of Leaders distills leadership best practices into a simple, compelling process that helps leaders at all levels get immediate results.

The Model

Leaders have three fundamental responsibilities: They craft a vision, they build alignment, and they champion execution.

  • Crafting a Vision: imagining an improved future state that the group will make a reality through its work
  • Building Alignment: getting to the point where everyone in the group understands and is committed to the vision
  • Championing Execution: ensuring that the conditions are present for the imagined future to be turned into a reality

Of course, there’s a lot of skill that goes into each of these responsibilities. That is, in fact, what The Work of Leaders is all about. The model is broken down into three key things effective leaders do at each step, and describes specific behaviors for each.

Everything DiSC Supplement for Facilitators:
Have you ever struggled with coaching a person through their Everything DiSC Profile when their dot is close to the center of the circle? Or when you’re trying to explain to someone who had an Appraiser DiSC Classical pattern about why their Everything DiSC dot is only in the “i” quadrant?

The Everything DiSC Supplement for Facilitators:
Is a one-page report that provides you with more detailed data about a respondent’s

  • DiSC style and dot placement
  • scores for all eight DiSC scales D, Di/iD, i, iS/Si, S, SC/CS, C, CD/DC, giving you more information to help them understand their style
  • assessment items they rated highly that aren’t typical for someone with their style, to help uncover the nuances of their style.

You won’t need to use this report for everyone. Most likely, you’ll use it with people whose dots are closer to the center of the circle, or DiSC Classic users who had one of those trickier patterns mentioned above. (It’s not intended for you to give to respondents with their profile. Remember part of the beauty of DiSC is its simplicity. Adding this information to what they get in their profile definitely makes it more complicated!)

You’ll have access to information that will help you prepare to coach a respondent who finds that certain pieces of feedback in their Everything DiSC Profile fit better than others. The Everything DiSC Supplement for Facilitators helps you have a conversation with a respondent to explore aspects of their personality that may not be consistent with their primary or secondary DiSC style.
