Good leadership ensures that people are put in the right positions according to not only experience and education, but also personality. Strong leaders know that in addition to these important aspects, personality plays a critical role in success. Managers and leaders are able to perceive those attributes and traits that will work together.
The best guarantee for a successful project is building a team that collaborates well as it will boost the overall productivity and effectiveness!
Strong Leaders Blend Traits and Teamwork
In a world with sudden change and constant growth in technology, leaders can no longer rely on single individuals to beat out the competition. You need solid teams consisting of individuals with specific traits and personalities that work seamlessly.
Thankfully, personality traits can be placed into four main categories known as DiSC®.
- Dominance (D)
- Influence (I)
- Steadiness (S)
- Conscientious (C)
Leaders will discover that there are advantages to learning, teaching and implementing DiSC ® when forming effective teams:
- Enable team members to shine within their personal talents
- Place each person into the proper role with confidence
- Create seamless transitions at each phase of a project
- Effective and positive communication
- Higher morale among all members
- Higher approval rating for leaders
How do most leaders assign projects? Most form teams based on experience without regard to personality and how it will affect a team or morale. Drama, conflict, and simple miscommunication can slow progress or impede any success at all.
Great ideas don’t just work because they’re great; they work because of a strong leader with a plan. By tapping into the power of personality, leaders can fluidly move ideas through each stage of the innovation process and bring ideas to life!
