1 December 2022 | 9:00am – 4:00pm | Wellington CBD 
 
Workshop Overview 
Throughout our childhood and working lives, we have absorbed so many images and messages about what a ‘good leader’ looks like, and how a ‘good leader’ acts and behaves. In so many cases, this stereotypical ‘good leader’ is quite different to how we see ourselves. If we believe that the stereotype is ‘right’, and if we receive feedback about our performance as leaders, that the stereotype is ‘right’ and we are ‘wrong’, it is very easy to lose ourselves. My research found that so many leaders, especially women, were either (a) trying to modify themselves to be what they had been ingrained to believe was ‘right’ or (b) they would be themselves, but feel they were not measuring up. 
  
This workshop helps participants to understand the value of diverse leadership approaches to an organisation. There is no ‘right’ leader. The workshop also focuses on the importance, and value, of being authentic. You, your staff, and your organisation will benefit when you are truly authentic and can bring your full self to work. There is no better version of you, than you! 
 
Key learning objectives 
  • Understand the misconceptions of what constitutes a ‘good’ leader 
  • Understand the value of diverse leadership approaches:  
  • To value your authentic self as a leader 
  • To bring your full self to work
