Applications: How the Model and Inventories can be used
By using the Inventories in various combinations, individuals can examine the fit between:
- Their own leadership profiles and the leadership expectations and reward structure of their organization;
- Their view of themselves and other people's perceptions of them;
- Their own leadership profile and those of their colleagues;
- The leadership demands of any given task, project, or situation and the leadership capabilities that they and others bring to the table.
The Connective Leadership/Achieving Styles Model and Inventories can be used to improve:
- An individual’s Connective Leadership capacity
- Individual and organizational fit and effectiveness
- Intra-organizational communication
- Organizational culture and merging cultures
- Diversity in an interdependent world
- Executive coaching
- “Hot Groups”
- Interpersonal and inter-group conflicts
By aggregating the profiles of the individuals in any group, the Inventory can provide a Connective Leadership Group Profile. Composite polar graphs can also be developed to display the profile of an entire group or any subgroup (e.g., male, female, senior or mid-level managers, etc.) within it.

The Achieving Styles associated with Connective Leadership are the underlying, pragmatic behavioral strategies individuals use to achieve personal and organizational goals. Developing access to the full repertoire of Achieving Styles, as well as diagnosing the appropriate combination of styles for specific circumstances, can spell the difference between success and failure.
