Encore Cracking the Leadership Code
May 8, 2020
Hosted by Dr. Matthew Allen Woolsey
What does it really take to successfully lead in the 21st Century? Leading well is difficult. If it were easy, more people would be doing it. Bad leadership results in disengagement, turnover, unhappiness, anxiety, stress, and poor performance. Today’s workforce seeks a new type of leader, better equipped to navigate the speed and complexity of our digital workplace. Employees (59% of whom are Gen Y and Z) want to work in organizations with a clear sense of purpose, with leaders who connect with empathy, communicate with authenticity, and collaborate with transparency. This new type of leader is not born, but made. Becoming this strong leader comes down to the choices that we make and the habits we create. Building on a simple model of Connection, Communication, and Collaboration, this show will open your eyes to the obvious and not-so-obvious reasons why leading today is so difficult.
