The Power of Authenticity: Unmasking the Leader Within | Mette Johansson
In this talk, Mette Johansson argues that it is not necessary to put on a mask and be someone that you are not. On the contrary, all genders should embrace their true character and values, whether typically associated with men (which include strategy, ambition, firmness or assertiveness) or women (which include empowerment, compassion, collaboration and fairness). Those who Lead Authentically are not only happier and more balanced; they also inspire their teams to perform.
“I don’t know” – Why this can unlock your leadership superpower | Karen Leong
The world has and is going through unprecedented change, and the situation has only been exacerbated by the Corona pandemic. In this highly fluid and uncertain reality, leaders face greater challenges and stress as they try to steer their organisations when they themselves are battling uncertainty. Today, more than ever there is a pressing need for leaders to be able to demonstrate greater resilience and clarity. They need to be able to provide (themselves and their teams) the confidence and clarity that together we can, together we will.
Authentic leadership | Dolf van den Brink
Dolf will share his view on Authentic leadership. For sure an inspirational and interesting story not to be missed, given his rich experience at Heineken.
