Audacious Leadership: How to Lead with Conviction, Courage and Care
Australian leaders spend millions of dollars and hours every year developing their own capability and that of their teams, yet as a nation are undecided about what really works. Part of the reason is that more people resist standing up and out than those willing to lead with the positive audacity of conviction, courage and care. It is critical for leaders to create their own enduring leadership style, position and purpose, one that will ensure there is no ambiguity about their behaviour, actions or communication. This Audacious Leadership practical presentation will enable participants to work on developing their own leadership style, position and purpose.
