What is ‘Your Story about Leadership?
What is Your Story about Leadership is a one-on-one online conversation with Peter de Kuster. It is one of 12 virtual conversations around our core themes: Entrepreneurship, Passion, Self Promotion, Money, Time, Self, Innovation and Creativity. Further information on how to connect with Peter will be send when you mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Throughout the ages, much has been written about the traits of great leaders. It’s easy to feel intimidated. Or, to adopt a style that is not our own. Leadership amplifies our weaknesses and insecurities, as well as our strengths. Today, an authentic leadership style is crucial to inspire commitment and get results.
In this one hour conversation, we will:
- Discuss the overall nature of leadership and how it has changed through history.
- Take a realistic look at some of the trials of leadership and how to tackle them.
- Develop a more compassionate approach to ourselves to improve our relationships with others.
- Learn to communicate clear purpose to clients and colleagues.
- Build a more productive workforce by demonstrating trust in employees or team members.
What characterises mastery of this skill?
Employees with good leadership skills possess good understanding about their own strengths and weaknesses. They are able to build a team that compensates for their blind spots and they seek out regular feedback, taking time to adapt their behaviour. At the same time, good leaders demonstrate trust in their team and are self-compassionate.
What characterises a lack of this skill?
Employees who are new to management or lack leadership skills may act impulsively, unpredictably or unreliably. They might be too nice or lenient and struggle with team members questioning their authority, or they might be prone to micromanage. Those who struggle to lead can also become irritable and pass on their feelings of pressure to others.
The format of this conversation is highly interactive and involves a combination of teaching, and reflection. Peter de Kuster aims to create a confidential space where you are welcome to contribute freely and comfortably.
