PBD Dictatorship™

Leading Charismatically™

Personality Inc.

Personalities are complex. Imagine a complicated highway where 3 or 4 major interchanges intersect. What would it be like without signs and directions? Would you know where to go? When personalities merge, that’s exactly what we experience. People frequently struggle with understanding others’ behaviors, choices, motivators, and personal interactions. In managing relationships, we frequently interact with others as we would like to be interacted with ourselves.

We can measure and better understand personalities through assessments. DISC is one of the leading assessments to measure behaviors. Personalities go much deeper than just DISC or behaviors and are made up of behaviors, motivators that drive our behaviors, emotional intelligence, stress factors, leadership approaches and many other factors that all interrelate.  Personality Inc. shows attendees how to best interact with everyone in their lives how the other person wants to be interacted with.

      Participatory Benevolent Dictatorship

      Dr. Abelson’s leadership theory combines a number of the most effective, yet easy to implement, leadership approaches ever developed. He provides 10 winning techniques to be a very effective participatory leader. These leaders get buy-in, dedication, and respect from those they lead, not because they demand it, but because they earn it through. First, they show respect for staff through their willingness and desire for participation in decision making. Second, they demonstrate true concern and compassion for staff and their needs. Third, they are willing to make decision even when those decisions may be difficult.

      What Happens During The Training

      Leaders learn techniques on how to share control, how to reveal vulnerability and fallibility, and how to move their organization forward by making decisions even when others may disagree. Staff enjoy the participation, appreciate the benevolence, and enjoy taking action with the opportunity to modify that action when appropriate. When leaders use all three aspects of this approach, there is true respect for the leader and staff find it easier to follow.

          Leading Charismatically

          Charismatic leaders have been around since the Garden of Eden. These leaders understand and lead through focusing on those things that excite and ignite our emotions and feelings. The most effective of them master the situation by building passion within others to do exceptional things and sometimes even surpass our wildest expectations. They paint appealing pictures, help us create dreams and have us believe we can contribute to and actually achieve those dreams. They inspire and challenge us, and galvanize our purpose, our goals, our actions. The most skilled charismatic leaders have us achieve what we thought was impossible.
