Jeff will discuss both his own leadership experiences and those of well-known and respected leaders in a variety of fields – business, sport and the military – in order to identify the elements that encourage people to follow where they lead. Jeff will identify the core skills and behaviours displayed by those leaders. He will examine how they deal with people, the steps they take to establish trust and understanding, the importance of communication and the approaches used to inspire top performance. Jeff will also discuss how leaders create and articulate a clear vision for their organisation and how they lead change effectively.
Jeff’s presentation style is straight-forward, accessible and rich with vivid anecdotes. The session is relevant to anyone who finds themselves thrown into a leadership role. It will also appeal to those who are allergic to management theory or frustrated by its apparent dissociation from real life.
