    9:00 – 12:30 Workshop A: From authenticity to action. From action to results: The business case for authentic leadership

    Much has been written about ‘Authentic Leadership’. Most of the rhetoric states that authentic leaders display high self-awareness; they lead with their hearts, are genuine, mission driven, and results focused while holding self-transcendent and universal values.

    No wonder everyone wants to be, and be seen as, an authentic leader! Yet, how do you derive better results and an ROI from authenticity when compared to other leadership styles?

    This workshop will:
    Learn how to turn your authenticity and strengths into practical behaviours that boost employee engagement, drive innovation, extraordinary performance, and business results. This workshop will cover:
    – The business case for authentic leadership
    – Authenticity and sincerity
    – Debunking the myth of the ‘well-rounded’ leader
    – Strength based leadership
    – Building your personal brand and leadership trademark
    – Measuring what matters
    – Moving beyond leader development to leadership
    – Development and leaderful practice
    Sebastian Salicru, Founder & Owner, Professional Consulting & Training Services (PTS)

    Being an authentic leader is one thing; but knowing how to develop leaders within your organisation is that next step. In this workshop you will learn the necessary techniques to foster future leaders within your team and company. An effective leadership coaching toolbox is essential for continuous improvements, innovation, and sustainable growth. Through this interactive Masterclass, Padraig O’Sullivan will equip participants with the skills and understanding to build effective, authentic, and high-performance leadership teams and encourage your employees to take the next step in their leadership journey.
    This workshop will help participants to:

    9.00am – 12.30am

    Workshop A: From Authenticity to Action and Results (The Business Case) – A Masterclass Workshop

    A lot has been written, and been said, about ‘Authentic Leadership’. Most of it says that authentic leaders display a high level of self-awareness; lead with their hearts; are genuine, mission driven, and results focused; engage in relational authenticity and authentic behaviour/action; hold self-transcendent and universal values (e.g. social justice, equality and broadmindedness), as well as benevolent values (e.g. honesty, loyalty and responsibility); display positive emotions toward their followers (e.g. goodwill, gratitude, appreciation and concern for others); and – of course – they inspire others (how could they not!).

     

    No wonder why just about everyone wants to be, and be seen, as one! The key question is: how exactly can authentic leadership deliver better results when compared to other forms or styles of leadership?
