Sugerman currently serves as a Board member for Coffee House Press, an independent, not-for-profit literary press based in Minneapolis. He serves on the Advisory Boards of experiencepoint, a creator of computer-based leadership development simulation systems, and Management Concepts, a leading provider of training services to the federal government. Jeffrey's non-work interests include playing upright bass in a jazz quartet and practicing yoga. Built upon a solid research-based foundation, the book is a remarkable collection of proven developmental strategies.
Clear and engaging, it is a must-read for those who aim to sharpen their leadership skills and improve their interpersonal effectiveness. Jeffrey Sugerman, Mark Scullard, and Emma Wilhelm challenge the widely accepted, but fundamentally flawed, assumption that you should lead only with your strengths. This highly personalized book is based on solid evidence, crammed with real-life examples, and full of practical suggestions that you can use immediately. You will be, as I was, richly rewarded when you read it and apply it.
So much of what many of us want to get done these days requires an understanding of what makes us more or less comfortable as we engage with our world and the key people in it, and this should be considered a prime resource. This is a power tool. As a more than twenty-year DiSC profile user and advocate, I was already familiar with and sympathetic to the basic model. But as I engaged with its simple but subtle concepts and suggestions, I was stunned by its ability to hit home for me in so many aspects of my own current leadership challenges and opportunities.

The 8 Dimensions of Leadership provides an in-depth look at leadership styles described through the DiSC model. The DiSC model helps you to understand your behavior and style preferences through four quadrants: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientiousness. The two q I read this book for a leadership course at work. These leaders can be indirect and avoid conflict. They may appear cynical and insensitive to others. The book itself is broken into three sections: Overall understanding of the eight dimensions of leadership, an in-depth understanding of your primary leadership preference and lessons that everyone can learn from each of the eight dimensions of leadership.
I found that you could read this book all the way through, taking note of the strengths and weakness of each dimension or focus on your leadership type only there is a short survey available online that helps you identify your leadership style.
While it was beneficial to focus more attention to my primary leadership type, I found it helpful to read about the other leadership styles as well. Although I am not a people manager, I interact with and lead different teams of people who had different styles and preferences than my own. Learning about the different dimensions of leadership helped provide insight into the strengths and opportunities of working with other personalities.
I thought the authors did a great job of delivering material in a simple and straightforward manner. Overall I would rate this book as a 10 out of 10 and would recommend it to others and not just those aspiring to leadership roles.

Apr 16, Lily E rated it liked it Shelves: non-fiction , psychology , arc. I sadly wasn't able to ready every page of this one, but like the publisher adverts, it's a book you get to when you need to brush up one of your skills or when you're searching for a new approach into a issue at work perhaps. Clear and concise it first explains the basis of the DiSC psychological model, and then procedes to get you through a brief explanation of the 8 leadership dimensions, guiding you with the help of web material and questionary, if needed to find your dominant attitude.
From I sadly wasn't able to ready every page of this one, but like the publisher adverts, it's a book you get to when you need to brush up one of your skills or when you're searching for a new approach into a issue at work perhaps. From there, it procedes in two branches, the first one adverting for your pitfalls, so you can avoid them, and the second one showing how to improve, based on the quealities of the other leadership models.

Jan 30, Tim Plett rated it really liked it Shelves: business , leadership. While I have other books on leadership and personality that I rate more highly, I found this one helpful. In particular I found it helpful in the analysis provided on the one area I need to work on, which is energy.
The ability to focus narrowly on areas of needed improvement is most helpful. The authors also lay the book out in such a way that you can read only the most needed chapters.
