The Six Domains of Leadership Model

The Six Domains of Leadership Model (SDLM) is a research-based model created by Duke University professors Sim Sitkin and Allan Lind. Their initial research focused on leadership as the effective exercise of influence based on behaviors identified in social psychology, sociology, and political science–with some supplements from the leadership literature.

What emerged was a distinctive leadership model, the SDLM. Each domain is characterized by its own subdomains and distinct effects that can form the basis for behavioral change and the development of new leadership skills.

From the model, a Six Domains of Leadership 360° Survey (SDLS) was designed to provide both an individual and organizational pathway toward the creation of a culture of leadership, a culture that results in a common bond in the workplace and can positively affect productivity and successful outcomes.
