Leadership: It Starts with Me
We’ve often heard the adage “everyone can be a leader”, but what does this mean? More importantly, how is this relevant to your career and your life? The most practical answer is to think of leadership in terms of character, not position or title, A leader is someone at any level who has grasped the ability to take charge of their thoughts, and consequently their actions, in any situation. The pressures of everyday work and life can take a toll, both personally and professionally, inhibiting the opportunity to evolve as the best version of yourself. Miscommunication, workplace drama and internal misunderstandings between various team members can have a negative impact on the atmosphere and overall culture. These situations necessitate self-leadership; i.e. the skill and awareness to lead yourself first! Delivering her message with insight, wit, energy and humour. Michelle’s engaging, informative and dynamic keynote presentation offers practical, actionable strategies to help you take the lead, rise above the day-to-day challenges and strengthen relationships at all levels.
