Any quality leadership program as well as being founded in self-awareness, maps to a quality leadership model and there are lots of leadership models out there. There is a new book coming out every single week on leadership, it is a topic, it’s a theme, it’s a concept which is in strong demand, it’s researched to the nth degree.
In addressing the leadership challenge, the fundamental question was what type of inclusions do you put in a quality leadership development program?
Vince Lombardi was once quoted as saying: “Only by knowing yourself, can you be an effective leader.” It really does come down to leadership programs being founded in what we’d call self-awareness. That is, the level of knowledge an athlete has about their strengths, their limitations, their motivations, the type of environment that they respond well to and the type of coaching that they respond well too.
At Athlete Assessments, we’re experts in the people side of sport. We know sport and live high-performance every day. Our reputation and proven success at the elite level speaks for itself. The results that our National, Olympic, Professional and Collegiate team clients achieve directly reflects their focus on getting the people side right.
Recently we started counting how many sports we have been involved in and were surprised to get to 41. In sport everyone keeps score, so here’s our scoreboard so far. We are proud of our contribution to sport and are constantly inspired by what our clients achieve. In elite sport, every team has quality equipment, strong conditioning programs and competitive strategies. The only true advantage is gained by investing in your people. Equipment doesn’t win championships. People do. If you are interested in more information on the Athlete Assessments Scoreboard, you can find it here.
We’re going to chat a little bit about the basics of DISC. As you know Athlete Assessments uses DISC as the core of all of the work that we do. I just wanted to give you a few quick tips on what DISC is really all about.
First and foremost, DISC is a behavioral model. That means it measures the observable behaviours of what people actually do. It’s talking about how we act – it’s not who we are, it’s not our personality – it’s just about our behavior.
