Success is made by people – you’ve probably heard this before. It’s a simple but powerful truth.
Helping others unlock their potential is an essential part of leadership, perhaps the most valuable one. Great leaders can develop their people into top performers – which reflects back on their business success, making their leadership achievements visible to the world.
To reach this level of excellence, it’s useful to adopt a different perspective and look at leadership as a service to others. It also helps to look at different ways of helping others develop, and to learn a few coaching techniques (find a collection in my book “Impact.”)
In my keynote speeches, I talk about different aspects of leadership. I tell stories about great and not-so-great examples, about real-life cases I witnessed, about solutions that worked – or failed.
The feedback I usually get from people is that time passed in a flash, that people felt drawn in and identified. Audiences feel that I am passionate about what I do. I simply love helping people.
