Leading Yourself

First and foremost, leaders must be able to self-management and self-develop. The best way to do this is to learn from other leaders. Dean’s mantra is “Leaders are Readers.” Be sure to check out one or all of the books on Dean’s recommended reading list. Check back from time to time as our team at LHLN are readers and are adding new titles often.

Leading Others

Your ability to lead others comes down to influence and your ability to create relationships and partnerships with those you lead. One way we are wanting to help, is to encourage you to take our Diamond Leadership Model self-assessment. We caution you that we find leaders tend to over-estimate their skills in each of the areas assessed. Sometimes, having a trusted peer take the 360 assessment is a good way to find where you can improve – we all can do that!
