Leadership: why understanding perspective will make you stronger

Leadership: why understanding perspective will make you stronger

“Let’s plan this task out before we start!”
“No, we need to just get started – we can work it out as we go along!”
This is a classic example of two different perspectives on how to approach a challenge. I’m sure we’re all familiar with scenarios like this at work.
Leaders need to be aware of different perspectives and understand that everyone on a team will approach something in a slightly different way.
Appreciating and nurturing different points of view will make your leadership much stronger. That’s why we encourage a creative and open approach to problem solving in our leadership training courses.

Have you connected with peers recently?

The Olympics: teamwork and leadership in action

Who else has been enjoying the Olympics?
I certainly have. And surprise, surprise especially the equestrian events. And while I recognise and respect that many people believe they should not be happening in a pandemic, I want to watch to honour the commitment of the sports men, women – and horses.
I also got thinking about what sport, especially the Olympics, teach us about teamwork and leadership. I’ve taken one quality from each discipline to highlight these: Dressage = commitment; Eventing = courage; Show jumping = communication

My lucky break: lessons on the power of positive thinking

For those of you who don’t know, I had an accident in April and broke my back. So, I’ve spent most of the past couple of months in rehab in hospital and at home.

– The power of positive thinking and resilience
