Leadership Journeys Start from Within

Add to calendar

Becoming an amazing leader means achieving high-performing results. However, this journey of growth and learning has plenty of ups and downs, twists and turns, and results and surprises. After years of leadership coaching and practice, Tricia Broderick has noticed several key patterns that have prevented people from taking the next step toward growing their leadership skills. Some of the common questions are, "What if we risk failure?" "Why won't my team step up?" and “Am I still adding value?" Tricia says that to achieve high-performing teams, leaders must challenge these patterns through learning, reflection, and discovery. She also asserts that this challenge starts from within each one of us. Too often we focus on what the team is or is not doing, when instead we should start with what we are doing to influence the team dynamic. In this keynote, Tricia will explore a leader's role in creating an ecosystem for self-organizing teams. Walk away with techniques to minimize the internal struggles, including the sometimes overwhelming expectations of leaders, responding to unfair goals or deadlines, and effectively dealing with self-doubt. Most importantly, leave with an appreciation of how rewarding inside-out leadership growth is and the impact it can have on your teams and organization.
