Register for Replacing ‘Soft Skills’ with Power Skills: Developing the Entrepreneurial Leader

The Challenge

Businesses asked a lot of their leaders over the past few years – to be authentic and vulnerable, cultural models and coaches. Looking ahead at a future that continues to shift, now organisations need leaders that can adapt and be prepared for the ‘Future of Work’, whatever that may look like. How do we develop leaders with innovative and entrepreneurial mindsets? How do we support them to become more comfortable managing shifting goalposts and taking educated risks? Now is the time to invest in leaders and upskill them with the ability to be strategic in the face of uncertainty and to be able to make tough decisions when we don’t know the answers.

What will we explore?

  • What does ‘entrepreneurial’ leadership mean, and why will it become vital for organisations?
  • How do we support leaders in strengthening all their ‘power skills’ – empathy, authenticity, and innovation?
  • What routes of development can we create for leaders that don’t want to develop strengths in these areas, or have other skills? What other options are there?

What outcomes can I expect?

  • Explore what this new leadership style could bring to your business, and start defining your version of ‘entrepreneurial’
  • Develop frameworks to identify the managers and high potentials that can bring this capability into the leadership team
