Insights into What Makes Leaders Great

Professionals often move into leadership roles as experts in their field, yet lack the knowledge and skill to behave as leaders. Being a skillful professional doesn’t necessarily translate into communicating powerfully, influencing or mobilizing others around a common purpose. Great leaders understand themselves well and how their behaviours impact others. They also recognize and acknowledge the differences of their team members, and know how to adapt to communicate more effectively, motivate and mobilize. Based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, this workshop will give participants a chance to explore how they lead and contribute to the team, and how to activate and adapt their behavioural preferences to get better results.

This session will be facilitated by Lianne Krakauer, a career and leadership coach with over 20 years of experience in professional services, education, business and the public sector. Lianne has a multi-disciplinary background in law, counselling psychology and coaching.

She has held leadership positions in the public and private sectors, and has worked with individuals at all levels including professionals, business owners, senior managers and executives.
