Real-Time Leadership: Find your winning moves when the stakes are high
The best leaders, in the biggest moments, know how to read the situation, respond in the best way possible, and move forward. As their coaches, you can too.
The hardest part of leadership is mastering the inevitable high-risk, high-stakes challenges. As leadership coaches we want to empower ourselves and our leaders to make the most of every moment. When the greatest leadership opportunity of their life comes along – what is a framework we can use to help them think through what matters most to them ? Or, when they are confronted by their biggest threats, how can we help them overcome their stress default behaviors to be at their best during those crucial moments.
It starts with overcoming your leadership reflexes and reactions to find the optimal response to any situation, which you can learn to do.
Dr. Kauffman will share the innovative new framework — MOVE — which equips both leaders and coaches to be at their best. She will also weave this together with the Egon Zehnder survey of 1,000 CEOs with a combined annual revenue of nearly four trillion dollars.
