What Leadership isn’t and why this is good news for Leaders
Monday 19 May 2014
12:30 - 13:00 BST

REGISTER NOW!

There is a raft of literature available on ‘Leadership’ – countless books, publications, journals and guides.  Is the same answer being rewritten?  Is there confusion around the topic?  Or is there no single answer available?

During this webinar, Dr Ben Hardy will explain why these questions are cause for celebration.  Since there is no single correct approach, those who are prepared to think and struggle have an advantage over those who are not.  Through the course of the half hour Ben will look at the current state of research into leadership, drawing out some themes which we may wish to think about in order to most effectively lead.  He’ll also touch on the topic of followership and what followers actually value in their leaders.

Join us for what promises to be an engaging start to our series of webinars on ‘Learning Leadership’ and to hear some of the few things that leadership isn’t.

This webinar is part of a 5-part series on 'Learning Leadership' and the following webinars are available throughout the week:

Tuesday 20 May - Leadership as Relationship with Dr Caroline Ramsey

Wednesday 21 May - Leadership - influencing the things that matter with Professor Rob Paton and Dr Owain Smolović-Jones

Thursday 22 May - Resilient Leadership: mess, set-backs and failure with Murray Eldridge MBA

Friday 23 May - Leadership with Political Astuteness with Professor Jean Hartley

This webinar is brought to you in partnership with Campaign for Learning and is part of Learning at Work Week.
