What Is Your Leadership Style?
We encourage you to take a few minutes out of your day to think about the way you are leading your organization. Wouldn’t it be great to have the insights of other great leaders at your fingertips? Below are two quick video highlights from keynote presentations at the May Leadercast conference. They highlight key skills that can be used right away and will change the way you think about leadership.
Making the Hard Decision to Stop What Isn’t Working
Why is it so difficult to let things go? There often comes a point when, as a leader, you realize that something you are attached to is “sick” and is not going to get well. Whether the season has passed, or the investment made in a person or project isn’t paying dividends, Dr. Henry Cloud discusses how leaders face the difficult choice of a necessary ending.
Dr. Henry Cloud is an acclaimed leadership expert and best-selling author. He draws on his experience in business, leadership consulting, and his practice as a clinical psychologist, to impart practical and effective advice for improving leadership skills and workplace performance.
Calm is Contagious
As leaders, your people are going to mimic your behavior. They may even amplify your behavior. Navy SEAL Commander Rorke Denver suggests that "calm is contagious" and stresses the importance of keeping your head when the going gets tough.
Rorke Denver is a Former Navy SEAL Commander & Best-Selling Author, he has run every phase of training for the U.S. Navy SEALs and led special-forces missions in the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and other international hot spots. He starred in the hit film Act of Valor, which is based on a true story.
