That’s UnCommon Leadership®

And we can help you get there.

Years ago, I was asked a question by my daughter that changed everything.

“When you get dressed, do you put on sock, sock, shoe, shoe or sock, shoe, sock, shoe?”

I had never considered it. Have you? (And now that I have, I know that I’m a sock, sock, shoe, shoe kind of guy.)

Her simple question had larger implications. Like most people, that wasn’t the only scenario that I found myself taking action on repeat without giving it much thought.

Do you know why you do what you do? How many things have you done today on automagic mode? Do you know how you lead? Or, better question, how you hope to inspire others as a leader?

If you are only using one type of leadership style, how is that working for you?

Leadership is personal and personalized. At least UnCommon Leadership® is.

Ed Chaffin synthesizes his multiple decades of experience into a roadmap for leaders who are ready to transform themselves – as well as others in the process.

UnCommon Leadership® for the New Reality: 3 Principles that Drive Greater Awareness, Engagement, and Psychological Safety uncovers what it means and what it takes to be a leader like none other … a leader that walks their talk, has high integrity, brings their people together for the greater good, and practices a form of personal and personalized leadership that focuses on the people they are blessed to work with and lead first and foremost.

In recent years, Covid and other social and economic shifts have brought us into what I call a New Reality in the workplace. People’s expectations have changed. Employees are more in charge and more likely to dictate the terms of their work.

One thing any business or organization wants to avoid is employees or participants who are disengaged. They’re physically present, but their minds are elsewhere, and who knows where their hearts are.

People can experience the same event or interact with the same person and come away with completely different versions of that event or person. Our beliefs about ourselves and others largely define what type of leader inspires and motivates us.
