This week, Lee talks to Katie Anderson, a leadership coach, independent consultant and author of "Learning To Lead: Leading To Learn".
Katie discusses the concept of connection and how the writing of the book influenced her own viewpoints on this, as well as coaching and the foundational keystones upon which all good leaders must build their outlook.
Connection with humans and the world around us is the foundational place upon which leaders and change agents must build.
We build connection by being authentic, and endeavouring to remove any kind of hierarchy that we may imagine exists.
When we coach or act as leaders, we should not try to have the answer to every question. It is our responsibility to guide others towards solutions, not provide them on tap.
We cannot control events, but we can control our reaction to these events. Leaders and coaches are the ones who must act as the calming voice when challenges arise.
'It's hard to listen to your own voice, but it's important, too'
'That's the foundation of leadership and continuous improvement'
'Connection is the key to everything'
'There can be an unnatural balance in hierarchy'
