As a Leader - Are You Playing at the Top of Your Game?
July 31, 2017
Hosted by Bernard E. Robinson
If leadership is a performing art, and it is, then leader’s need not only know what leadership is, but know how to be really good at it. As a leader is it challenging to be at the top of your game every day because there are challenges that leaders cannot predict or know are coming and that can compromise the leader’s effectiveness and even catapult into a spiral that leads them to operate at a level below their best. Your host, Bernard E. Robinson, will lead a discussion that examines the role and challenges associated with the management of ego and competence. Join him in discussing ways of managing your performance as a leader wishing to play at the top of their game. As Bernard suggests, if you’re going to be in the game and be leader of it, you might as well play at the top of yours. Examine what is the Circle of Competence and the process of defining your own? Tune in to find out the steps involved in being unconsciously competent leader.
