Eight Essential Questions

Making Inclusive Decisions

Discover Your Leadership Style

Different times and circumstances call for different kinds of leaders.  Knowing your Leadership Style allows you to access your power. Based in Personality Type (MBTI), Markey’s model supports you in creating a career, team or business where you can shine.  

  • Step into your Superpowers and discover the freedom that follows.
  • Make friends with your Bozopowers and learn how to lean into the strengths of your team.
  • Tap into the energy and resources that are unique to your Personality Type. 

Markey’s endless curiosity about what makes a good leader resulted in developing an dynamic Leadership Styles model that helps people recognize and powerfully claim the kind of leader they are instead of mimicking the mannerisms and language of others. In her book, Leadership Styles, Making Informed Decisions (2017), she presents a dynamic model that encourages a diversity in leadership roles that transcend conventional ideals.

Leadership Coaching

All Types of Leaders benefit from coaching. In a series of individualized and private sessions, you can explore how to lead from your Leadership Style while continuing to grow and develop. 

  • Discover the natural opportunities and challenges of your Leadership Style.
  • Learn to flex your Leadership Style.
  • Recognize your natural blind spots and build resources.

Whether you are a Solopreneur, a CEO, or a Team Leader, individual Leadership Coaching will help you get support for your tactical and strategic challenges in real time so you can do more of what works.

  • Learn to recognize and lean into the strengths of different Leadership Styles and build resilient teams.
  • Embrace the opportunities that arise from including a variety of Leadership Styles in decision-making

Teams and individuals make thousands of decisions every day. Creating inclusive decisions in any organizations is a challenge and the faster we move the harder that becomes. 

Using the Eight Essential Questions model provides leaders and team members with a method for inclusion, by looking at challenges, projects, and planning from multiple perspectives. Each question represents the core needs of each of the Leadership Styles. Incorporating these questions into your routine and strategic conversations will enable your organization to consider the perspectives of the people around the table and those who may not be present yet.

 

  • Make more informed and inclusive decisions
  • Develop leaders from within teams
  • Become more facile in considering multiple perspectives

Personality Type is Fundamental

Personality Type (aka MBTI) is a powerful lens that enables you to understand the strengths of your team. Knowing the individual types and group dynamics of your team allows everyone to be more effective, engaged, and energized in their roles.

We offer a comprehensive approach to unlocking the potential of your team. Using a combination of Temperament, Interaction Styles, Team Leadership Styles, and Project Leadership Styles, your team members will be able to tap into their own resources and those of their co-workers more effectively.

Temperament & Interaction Styles act as a complementary system and are best used together.

  • Temperament Styles – Why we do what we do and how it the influences culture norms of an organization.
  • Interaction Styles – How we do what we do and how it contributes to potential area of conflict.

Dynamic Team Leadership & Project Leadership Styles act as a complementary system and are best used together.

  • Leadership (& Followship) Styles – How we make decisions and how this impacts group dynamics.
  • Project Leadership Styles – How we interact with time and deadlines and how this impacts group planning, projects, and goals.

What you can expect as a result of learning Your Personality Type:

  • Personality Type (aka MBTI) is a useful lens that provides key insight into expectations that team members bring to groups and roles.
  • Personality Type provides common language for building bridges and creating more dynamic teams.
  • When team member will learn their natural Personality Type (1 of 16), you can identify areas for improvement, blind spots where deeper understanding, humor, and a slower pace would be required.

There are many people certified to administer and train with the MBTI assessment, but the number of MBTI Master Trainers who are deeply steeped in Type and its effective application to our daily work and personal lives--the list of these people is very short, and Markey Read is up at the top of this list. A rarity in the OD field, Markey is a thought-leader who is able to go as deeply into her subject as her learners need without losing sight of application and practicality. As a long-time trainer and consultant, myself, I'm clear that there are not many trainers/consultants I would send "in my place," but any one of my clients would be lucky to work with Markey Read.

It has been my pleasure to work with Markey on and off for the past 20 years. She is a dynamic trainer and coach who inspires change and draws out the best in everyone. A strategic thinker, Markey naturally focuses on the big picture, future possibilities and new paths forward, always with a strong focus on the client’s core values. Customized, practical plans for growth and development are delivered seemingly without effort, because she is diligent with her up front preparation. Her sessions are always organized, well structured, interactive … and just plain fun! When you see her in action, you recognize that not only is she very good at what she does, but she truly enjoys it as well. Markey’s engaging, creative style and her personal enthusiasm inspire even the most reserved participants. I give Markey my strongest recommendation without hesitation. If you work with her, you will find out why.
