The Work of Leaders: How Vision, Alignment, and Execution Will Change the Way You Lead

Authors Julie Straw, Barry Davis, Mark Scullard and Susie Kukkonen distill leadership development best practices into a simple, compelling process that helps leaders at all levels to obtain immediate results.

In the view of the authors, leaders have three fundamental responsibilities: They craft a vision, they build alignment, and they champion execution.

  • Crafting a Vision: imagining an improved future state that the group will make a reality through its work
  • Building Alignment: getting to the point where everyone in the group understands and is committed to the vision
  • Championing Execution: ensuring that the conditions are present for the imagined future to be turned into a reality

The true value of this V-A-E model is that it lays out a manageable, realistic framework to guide the process. The goal is to provide straightforward explanations of where you might choose to target your personal development efforts.

The book is designed to be used independently, or in conjunction with Inscape's Everything DiSC Work of Leaders profiles and reports. Core chapters of the book introduce keys and behaviors that leaders use to further each step of the model and provide specific strategies for those who are looking to increase their ability to explore during the vision process. It also makes these ideas concrete by relating illustrative examples or anecdotes about people and organizations who have used these drivers to improve their effectiveness to realize each step in meaningful ways.
