In this week’s show, Lee talks to Katie Anderson, a leadership coach, independent consultant, author of ‘Learning To Lead: Leading To Learn’, and a passionate advocate of helping to develop individuals’ confidence and capabilities in improving themselves and their organisations.
Katie discusses the incredible journey that led to the insights she now uses to empower others, the value of recognising your purpose from moment to moment, and why balance might be the ingredient you’re missing when it comes to developing and leading teams.
We should always remain open to opportunities, and to the "golden seed” moments that can bring about an awakening, and a whole new perspective.
Perspective, experience and wisdom allow us the vocabulary we need in order to both recognise and communicate our purpose.
We must always try to develop people with the right intentions. It is not a box ticking exercise. We must help others to rise so that they can contribute their unique gifts and insights to the wellbeing of the business.
We cannot convince people to change, but we can offer experiences that change their thinking, and their perceptions in such a way that they seek change of their own volition.
‘It’s enriched my own perspective about leadership’
‘If there’s a big disconnect between your purpose and the moment, there’s a different problem you need to address’
’The process and the people are two sides of a balance that needs to be working in sync’
‘Identify the process they need in order to help support the people'
