Breakfast Forum – Webinar

Wednesday 3rd June, 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 business world has been turned upside down by the Coronavirus crisis, creating new levels of pressure and challenge for people in their work

In the current operating environment, more than ever, it’s vital that leaders are able to set direction, create alignment and engender a sense of commitment among employees, so they can still give of their best – even under these unprecedented circumstances.

We are seeing many heart-warming acts of leadership in response to the crisis, often from unexpected quarters.  And 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.  What we’re seeing instead is that leadership in these uncertain 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 has for years been 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 is especially relevant now 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 at work – which we’ll discover is a key ingredient in building a sustainable response and recovery from the effects of the pandemic.
