How do you define leadership?
The list of “what makes a good leader” is a long one. It’s as if we’ve taken every positive human quality and made it into a requirement for effective leadership.
But leadership isn’t actually all about individual leaders and their capabilities. Leadership happens in the interactions and exchanges among people with shared work.
We define leadership as a social process that enables individuals to work together to achieve results that they could never achieve working as individuals.
For effective leadership to happen, the interactions and exchanges among people have to create:
These 3 outcomes — direction, alignment, and commitment (our DAC framework) — make it possible for individuals to work together willingly and effectively to realize organizational achievements.

“CCL’s Leadership Development Program helped me build up my vision and competency about leadership. Based on the models shared: DAC (Direction, Alignment, and Commitment), SBI (Situation, Behavior, and Impact) and other practices, I am able to find the most effective way to communicate with my staff and my manager. The LDP training also helped me gain a better understanding on my organization’s health and the long-term development of employees.”

“Future Generali Life partnered with CCL for Leadership Development of our C-Suite in a unique and flagship program to discover ways of being simpler, smarter, faster. The tone was set through a detailed pre-work and assessment which set the context and expectations effectively towards Direction-Alignment-Commitment (DAC). The pre work captured finer aspects of the challenges faced by the leadership team well. The leadership team felt a sense of enthusiasm, made personal commitments, and had a higher level of understanding that interdependencies go a long way in establishing alignment within the teams.”
