Inspiring Leadership means creating an environment where people are aligned to a positive vision of the future and willing to do what it takes to get there. Without trust, people will not follow you where you’re trying to lead.
There are quite a few people providing courses in what they describe as executive presence, although when reviewed, all too often this is being translated into media training, grooming and how to dominate the room. Knowing how to present clearly across mediums is vital and taking care with your personal appearance (which does not mean having to wear a suit or skirt) are elements of executive presence, dominating the room is not.
In terms of change leadership we’ve been watching our clients cope with some rapidly shifting sands over this past eight weeks. Supply chain disruptions, travel bans, factories with social distancing, temperature checks, and other new levels of safety and preparedness.
