Leadership

Get out of your fish bowl.

October 10, 2011

Do you know what all great leaders have in common? They are willing to get out of their fish bowls. What I mean by that is great leaders adapt their behavior. They are aware of how they are perceived by others, and they learn to adapt their behavior in a variety of ways. Why is that so important?

Think of adapting your behavior like learning a new language. If you’re visiting another country, you’ll have a much better time if you learn the language of the country. Learning a new language is one way of adapting. And if you want to be a better leader for your law firm, you need to understand the language of the people who work with you. Yes, you and everyone on your team speaks a different language – a different behavioral language. You’re all swimming in different fish bowls. So, how do you get out of your fish bowl? The DISC behavioral assessment is one way.
