In all areas of business, you need to ensure you’re leading your team, customers, clients and business partners, as effectively as you can. Whilst some aspects of leadership remain constant – other elements move with our situation, and the challenges we face. The need for community and a tribal view of the world has been with us through human history. The concept of “tribes” has become one which is achieving a lot of recent attention as individuals look to come together in groups with shared values and interests. And a core element of a tribe is a family. Recent research has demonstrated that what we’ve learnt over millennia – that the art of good parenting has a much wider application in a world which is becoming more and more tribal. The generations now entering – and leading – our sales teams are looking for more authentic leadership. They want to share the values of the tribe – and be led by leaders who actively demonstrate these values.
In this session be prepared to be challenged about what lessons we can learn from the home front which we can apply immediately to our organisations, big and small. Dr Yvonne Sum is an acknowledged expert in two spheres – family dynamics and parenting, and organisational leadership. Yvonne will share a 7 part model which will help any manager be a better leader
Yvonne will expand on the following framework, and demonstrate the power that lies within us all to be good leaders:
* Leadership starts and ends with role models
* Respect is essential
* We all need rules & routine
* We need to be personally responsible – and actively respond
* Personal reflection and review is the key to growth and performance improvement
* If things need to change – they need to change
And the bonus that you’ll take from Yvonne’s presentation is that it could even do something more important than increasing your business outcomes – it could even help you become a better parent.
