Many people believe leadership is about having power and authority over others. That includes telling staff and management what to do. In other cases, it is believed the leader is in place to fire whomever they want. Wouldn’t that be the quintessential image ofthe “Almighty Oz”? In all likelihood, a leader with that mindset will create a “yes-man” culture. That company will most likely experience very little growth and innovation.
On the other hand, there are leaders that are intentional about relationship building, they focus on emotional intelligence and they are great at empowering employees. Those are the people others desire to work under. Those leaders understand the importance of creating a culture where communication is high, employee contribution is valued and delegation is a tool used to bring out the best in staff and management.
While leadership is important, it still remains an elusive topic for most. To bring this subject to life, we will have a very special guest who knows leadership as military personnel and a civilian. Her name is Tanya Smith. In addition to 24 years of military service, she was also the acting director for New Jersey’s largest residential program for male juvenile offenders.
Join us for an extraordinary conversation about leadership. Call in to discuss and acquire tools to bring out the best in others.
