Insights from Leadership Fellows,
Number 13, December 2017

This is the thirteenth in our series of Insights from Leadership Fellows, that draws out six insights from this Conversation on the challenge of becoming more trustworthy as a leader. We also include a series of coaching tips linked to each insight that we hope will be helpful for Leadership Fellows who identify with that particular insight.

Perhaps the most important reflection to emerge was that our trustworthiness as a leader, in the eyes of others, depends to a large degree on how much we are ready and willing to trust ourselves as leaders.

Number 12, November 2017

The twelfth in our series of Insights from Leadership Fellows, this one is on the theme of improving our performance as leaders. It starts by setting out 10 insights that emerged through the Conversation, and suggests that the motivations driving many high performing leaders – such as their fear of failure – bring with them not only obvious benefits but also potential challenges and downsides.

The document includes a four-stage process for leadership teams to assess your own performance, based on the questions that we asked ourselves during this Conversation.

Defining your brand as a leaderInsights from Leadership Fellows,
Number 11, October 2017

This is the eleventh in our series of Insights from Leadership Fellows, on the theme of defining your brand as a leader. It sets out a series of 10 questions to support leaders in defining your own brand as a leader.

The document argues that the most effective brand for a leader enables you to model your key strengths in a way that brings out the best in others.

When a leader achieves this it should support you in challenging your capacity for self-doubt. This undermines our leadership brand more than anything else.

The document argues that engagement and connection are at the heart of the empowerment process.  Leaders committed to empowering members of their team are urged to show the discipline necessary to avoid “meddling and tinkering”, if they really want to create the space for them to step up with confidence.
