How To Be A Good Leader

If our careers develop well, sooner or later we will be thrust into leadership roles. When this happens, it is easy to feel intimidated, and then to adopt a style that is not our own, mimicking second or third-hand ideas of what it means to be authoritative and strong.

Leadership amplifies our weaknesses and insecurities as well as our strengths. An authentic leadership style is crucial to inspiring commitment and getting results. In this session, we reflect on what makes a good leader. We see how our personal histories have shaped our assumptions. We consider our strengths and blind spots in order to understand our effect on others. We address key leadership challenges, from creating a compelling vision to empowering others.

By attending the class, you will:

  • Discover what motivates you to lead, and how to use that to drive you forward
  • Take a realistic look at some of the trials of leadership, and how to tackle them
  • Develop a more compassionate approach to yourself, in order to improve your relationships with others
  • Learn to communicate your purpose clearly to clients and colleagues
  • Build a more productive workforce by demonstrating trust in employees
