Authentic Leadership

Being authentic is the foundation for successful leadership. However, most leaders lack the necessary self-awareness to be who they really are on a consistent basis. As a consequence, leaders might think they are being the best version of themselves, but in reality there is a gap between how they see themselves and how others experience them. This gap is a risk because the primary way to truly engage and inspire others is through building strong emotional connection based on authenticity.

Lead with Purpose

This talk inspires leaders to lift up from their complex, fast paced and uncertain world to help define their ultimate purpose.  Most leaders operate on autopilot with a tendency to repeat habits which can undermine the very outcomes they are trying to achieve.  It’s only when they discover their big why that they can become purpose-led and able to formulate a roadmap to guide them in the direction they want to travel.

Resilient Leadership

The new world of work demands cheaper, better, faster. There is too much to do and not enough time. Resource is scarce and it appears we don’t have the capacity to deliver. In this reality leaders need to develop new muscles to have the necessary resilience to bounce back and flourish. Leaders need to become corporate athletes where they build new muscle memory physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually to succeed.

Sustainable Leadership

The responsibility of a leader today is to deliver growth in a sustainable way. This means leaders need to focus on 4 key areas: community, workplace, economy and the environment. Most leaders tend to operate within a limited sphere of influence. The talk challenges leaders to stretch their thinking, knowledge and behaviour to have the right capability to drive sustainable growth in their organisation. It will ignite passion for becoming better leaders to create a better world.

Connected Leadership

Leadership is relationship. Great relationships create great results. The problem is that the majority of leaders place task before investing in building strong connections with others. New research in neuroscience shows that we are wired to connect. We have neural mirrors that respond to the signals we send. Trust can be measured. Alignment can be evidenced. Leaders need to develop strong connections and networks to be successful.

Agile Leadership

We live in disruptive times. AI. Automation. The Gig Economy. To succeed as a leader in this volatile climate it is essential to develop your learning agility which will enable you to navigate this challenging landscape. Agile leadership encourages leaders to seek out new experiences to learn from, thrive on complex problems and perform better because they incorporate new skills into their repertoire.

Ben has played an important role in shaping many of the great leaders we have in the business today. On a personal note he has supported my leadership journey as CEO and I fully recommend his approach for leaders wanting to maximise their potential.

What is your purpose? This is probably the single most important question you can ask and your answer will shape your future. However, it’s not straightforward. We are led to believe that our purpose is connected with how much we achieve, the accumulation
