The Reflective Leader
The popular image of a great leader, especially in the United States, is someone who stands alone, leads from the front of the line, and is all-knowing. But most successful leaders are ordinary people, like you and me, that are human, first and foremost, and that can learn from their mistakes and become wise over time. Therefore, the most crucial characteristic of a leader is the ability to reflect – first, on one’s strengths and weaknesses, on human nature in general, to bring out the best in themselves and others, which builds team spirit. This practical and inspiring workshop explores an approach to leadership that is more effective in the long run through four key areas: (1) the art of reflection, (2) the discovery of purpose and the building of a shared vision, (3) the importance of integrity, and (4) mastering the art of focus.
- Maximize personal and organizational effectiveness
- Improve leadership effectiveness in a volatile world
- Tap a powerful sense of purpose to reframe in stressful situations
- Make better decisions as a result of understanding themselves and others better
