WORKSHOP: How to be a more visible leader in your organisation and beyond
(Speaking with Sarah Anderson)
In purpose-driven organisations it’s critical to have leaders who can walk the talk: those who lead with their values and inspire others with a clear vision. To be visible to others, however, you must also be “visible to yourself”.
In this session, leadership and communications experts Julia May and Sarah Anderson will take you through a four-step process comprising:
- Why the most direct path to better, more authentic leadership is through knowing yourself first.
- A mindset audit to help you clarify your purpose and values as a leader, your strengths and the areas you need to lean into.
- A peer coaching session with other leaders to articulate your vision for leadership.
- An elevator pitch exercise to express your vision as a leader and take back and use with your team.
Julia and Sarah will share insights from their work with leaders from around the world and their personal experiences as visible leaders of a global movement – Homeward Bound: a leadership phenomenon that has gone global.
Julia brings rich experience in strategy, business, leadership, coaching and communications, in Australia and abroad.
She co-founded Visibility Co in the belief that inside every person and organisation is a deeper purpose, a bigger vision and the ability to reframe the future. She approaches clients as a trusted adviser, always encouraging them to play big and plan well.
