Topics: Management and Organization Management and Organization
Leadership is about more than making effective strategic decisions for business outcomes. It is also about creating a positive workplace in which leaders can adapt to change and manage conflicts effectively. Leaders can build skills that can develop their presence by adopting the mindset of an improv actor. This means learning and practicing how to show up and be ready – ready to lead, to influence, and to contribute whether things go the way they are expected or not. And to have leadership presence: something that builds the trust we need to work together through good times and bad.
