Transformative Leadership: Be the Change
One of the top reasons people leave their jobs is their boss. And one of the reasons people don’t want to follow their boss is because the boss misunderstands what leadership is. This session explores how inspiring leadership is not a position, but a mission. It’s not about holding authority but taking responsibility. Discover what you need to do to earn loyal followers, and reflect on your outlook as a leader and the role you and your staff play in achieving the things you are leading them to. Good leaders transform organizations by enabling their staff to be creative, efficient, and productive. Leaders help staff see possibilities and map opportunities to business goals that sustain their organization. Jonathan Halls will draw on his almost 30 years of experience as a professional communicator (in media and business) in 25 countries around the globe. You will leave with key steps to transform your organization.
