Breakfast Forum, Bournemouth: 8:30-10:30am

Thursday 30th April, 2020

We are delighted to confirm Roger Coles as our next guest speaker. His experience and expertise lie in ‘Keeping It Human’.

Authentic Leadership

The pace and direction of change in today’s business world is creating new levels of pressure and challenge for people at work

In an increasingly complex and unpredictable operating environment, it’s vital that leaders are still able to set direction, create alignment and engender a sense of commitment among employees so they can give of their best.

But the age-old stereotype of the charismatic and heroic leader, who has all the answers and an unrelenting capacity to achieve results – come what may – is thankfully being debunked.  Leadership in these modern times calls for a more connected, more human approach – one where a leader is prepared to be their authentic self.

In a business world that is constantly demanding ‘more from less’ how do we manage our emotional intelligence and behave authentically to lead in a way that is caring and effective?  Keeping it Human is all about achieving better business results through better interactions between your people – every day. 

In this talk…

We will explore what it really means to be an authentic leader, why it works and how we can all nurture our own authenticity. 

We’ll also pay attention to the link between authentic leadership and the creation of psychological safety – which is rapidly becoming recognised as a key ingredient for the most healthy, sustainable and productive workplaces.
