How to Take the Lead

14-12-2023 • 35 mins

Do you have a personal leadership strategy?

Often we can focus on organisational strategies and lose our own purpose and intent along the way.

In this episode Carrie-Ann and Lee explore what it means to have a personal leadership strategy, why you need one and how you go about getting one. We discuss how:

  • your personal strategy differs from an organisational one
  • we've approached and developed our own strategies during our careers
  • your strategy can help you in your career development and job search
  • it can help you to build diverse teams
  • to align your strategy with the bigger picture
  • to get clarity about the type of leader you are and how you position yourself
  • to develop your personal leadership strategy
  • measurement and evaluation is an important part of your strategy
  • your leadership strategy sits alongside self-leadership and communication as the core cogs to be impactful
  • to create time to be intentional in your leadership approach

We also shared our one How To to help you get clarity in your leadership strategy.
