The Fish Rots From The Head Down
Caroline delivers a compelling keynote which outlines the key differences between leadership and management. No matter what the goals are in your business. Whether it's improving your sales, inspiring transformation, improving your culture, or promoting innovation. Someone has to lead. Leadership has nothing to do with your title or your position in the business. It’s about how you inspire others and what you do to change things for the better. Caroline believes the definition of a leader is someone who has followers. A tribe of people who respect and admire them. Leaders are those who empower others, inspire others to achieve their goals. True leaders create more leaders. All individuals have the potential to lead and in this keynote, Caroline will show you how.
Why Introverts Make The Best Leaders
Imagine a successful leader! We are presuming a reserved unassuming introvert was not what you imagined. All because studies have proven that the majority of executives in leadership positions display extroverted personality traits. Yet, that does not mean that extroverts are better leaders than introverts. Introvert leaders are more likely to listen to what their teams have to say. Pro-actively setting their team up for success. They have an ability to empower others. As a self-confessed introvert, Caroline is passionate about sharing the unique skills that have served her well as an accomplished introvert leader. You don't need to be an extrovert to be a great leader.
