Effective Leaders don’t just happen by accident. This Knowledge Project podcast talks about some of the characteristics of effective leaders. It struck a chord with me on the day I heard it. Jennifer Garvey-Berger outlines what it takes.
Initially, she outlines 4 stages in adult development. Each has its pros and cons. She goes on to talk in more depth about how to get it right (and wrong) as a leader.
I loved these quotes:
Great leaders have a presence that makes other people bigger.
The way (s)he speaks up people makes people grow… they have more space to grow… stand straighter, they smile
Think in systems… there’s no root cause of a hurricane
Here’s a fabulous primer from Brene Brown on some key leadership concepts.
