In these tough times, the negative consequences of poor leadership are much more evident. Many managers admittedly struggle to deliver results close to pre-pandemic levels while managing employees facing their own challenges.
It is in orgs leaders’ hands to balance results and the needs of their people. Picking just one of the two will not be sustainable. In a market that demands innovative and agile solutions, success lies in finding the right formula for your company. This sweet spot in leadership would also, in turn, attract quality talent beneficial for your company in the long term.
“Leadership is something you do with people, not to people,” said bestselling author and leadership expert Dr. Ken Blanchard.
For him, authentic leadership lies in the ability to unleash the potential of everyone and not just in delivering results. “We hope to inspire leaders to go beyond short-term thinking and zero in on the right target. We want to teach leaders to empower people to unleash their incredible potential,” he added.
On Wednesday, August 4, 6 pm, Blanchard will join corporate trainer for management and leadership Boris Joaquin. Together, they will provide insights into the current and rising generation of leaders.
They will also look back on what aspects of leadership will never wane, based on Blanchard’s over 40 years of experience in management and consultancy. Lastly, they will also ponder the question of what kind of leadership the world badly needs today.
Dr. Ken Blanchard is respected for his lifetime of groundbreaking research and thought leadership. He co-authored more than 65 books, including the iconic bestseller The One Minute Manager. He has sold over 23 million copies of these books in 47 languages. In 2005, Blanchard was inducted into Amazon’s Hall of Fame as one of the top 25 bestselling authors of all time. – Rappler.com
