For more than twenty years, Kate has listened to stories of leaders’ successes, frustrations, challenges and aspirations. What’s intriguing is that most have learned their positive leadership habits from leaders who were losers, bad bosses or poor role models! The truth is, we often learn the most from what doesn’t work. Pain is a powerful teacher. If you’ve ever worked for a bad boss, you know what I mean. Yet, some of the most transformational, influential and effective leaders will tell you they became successful by watching or experiencing other peoples’ mistakes, uninformed or impulsive decisions.
In this powerful keynote presentation, Kate will tell stories of leaders who lost–and leaders who succeeded by learning valuable lessons that influenced their leadership style. Don’t be the leader who teaches lessons by doing what you should avoid. You will have the opportunity to test three yourself on three key lessons that could make you the best possible leader.
