Episode 2: Leadership skills and mindsets

We keep saying that the world around us is changing, but in many ways, we continue to lead, engage and develop our people like we did in the 1980’s.

If we are going to lead our people to be more agile, productive, collaborative and innovative then we need to do things differently.

What we’ll cover:

  • What does your team need from you?
  • The new leadership skills and mindsets
  • You and your development as a leader

  • Own your development in ways that work best for you 


Take the Disruptive Leaders Diagnsotic

It will help you learn more about your style of leading and what you can do to improve so you can help your people thrive in a disrupted world.

This diagnostic will ask questions about how you operate as a people leader. When you’ve completed it, we will share some practical tips on how you can develop. And it will only take you a few minutes to complete!

Don’t forget to update your Programme workbook with your thoughts for the other reflection exercises in this Episode.

2. I make fair decisions based on the individual and the circumstances rather than treating everyone the same.

4. I get to know my team really well so that I know their talents and strengths.
