Leadership is about inspiring and enabling others to do their absolute best together to realize a meaningful and rewarding shared purpose. While people do follow an engaging leader for a time, they devote themselves over time to the cause of a BRAVE leader who inspires and enables them in the pursuit of that cause. Those leaders pay attention to their teams' environment, values, attitudes, relationships and behaviors helping the team think through and act on five questions:
What impact? – Behaviors
How to connect? – Relationships
How to win? – Attitudes
What matters and why? – Values
Where to play? – Environment
In this talk George Bradt explores how leaders help their followers answer those questions through what they say, what they do, and who they are. It draws on insights gleaned from George’s own experience as a senior line manager and consultant and from what George has learned from those he has interviewed and studied for his weekly New Leader’s Playbook columns on Forbes.com. The various columns have featured leaders of business, government, community, military, creativity, media, the arts, entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, and everyday heroes and, in turn, provide the examples for George’s new book First-Time Leader.
The talk is illustrated with these leaders’ stories and provides concrete ideas attendees can apply to strengthen their own BRAVE leadership in order to inspire and enable others.
