    Uncovering Powerful Leadership Capabilities From Within - Nigel Stevens - Organic Growth Marketing

    We can uncover from within, new and better leadership capabilities, to support not just ourselves, but also our clients, through these uncharted waters.

    Nigel Stevens, the founder, CEO and & Growth Lead of Organic Growth Marketing, a fully remote, SEO, digital marketing and content agency, revealed some powerful qualities that we can adopt as leaders and encourage among our teams - once we have worked out the logistics of how to work in this new environment. 

    What we like especially about Nigel’s approach to leadership in remote working is that he does not necessarily apply ‘learned leadership techniques’, but approaches it through his own evolving thoughts, understandings and experiences.

    Listen in for a discussion about ‘accountability’, ‘positive reinforcement’, 'self-reflection’ and more!

    And finally - make sure not to miss Nigel’s key piece of closing advice to us all, about how to deal with the uncertainty and focus in on what we can control.

    Nigel can be contacted through LinkedIn or his website, which is www.marketingog.com.
