The Trouble with Leadership

Along your journey, you might have noticed that the leadership style that you have adopted is not getting the results you want.

You may have found that hard logic and results are features of your adopted leadership style.  Likely, this style doesn't feel empathetic or kind to the people around you.

Or perhaps you have found that you still have issues with your team, no matter what you do or how nice and patient you are.  You are not getting the traction you need to deliver results.

In my experience, this kind of discovery starts around the middle of your career.  You begin to question your leadership life with its endless list of tasks, people and problems to deal with.

More specifically, you might be struggling with things like:

  • getting your team to do what you want
  • working out the answer to a business problem 

Is your leadership style working?

I would go as far as to ask you, is your approach working? Are you getting the results that you really want?

And, if you, like both my clients and my key people, are asking yourself this question, I wonder if I can help you?

Are you brave enough to try something different?  To look at leadership in a new way?  To try some simple changes that could have a profound impact on you and your team?

Because I think that I might just have something that could help you if you are ready to make a small jump.

Heartfelt Leadership

Heartfelt Leadership is about choosing a more balanced approach to leadership.  Because, Heartfelt Leadership is about two things: fixing work, people and team problems, and then understanding the deeper reasons why you have the issues in the first place.

Heartfelt Leadership will teach you how to lead others and lead them the way they want to be led.

Heartfelt Leadership will also help you to get clear about what you want in your life.  It will help you manage and embrace in times of chaos.

Adopting heartfelt leadership will set you and your team up for high levels of accountablility and teach you the importance of difficult conversations.

You will learn the language of heartfelt leaders and focus on the brevity of life to make sure that you legacy lives on.

Kerry's talk was honest and humorous!  All about life's ups and downs, very relatable and inspiring.  I absolutely enjoyed it!

Heartfelt Leadership Blog

Have you naturally drifted into leadership rather than it being a goal you aimed for?  Perhaps you are a leader because you are good at your job?  Or maybe you have a knack for convincing other people to follow you?  Either way, many of us become leaders without a whole lot of conscious choice.  It just happens.

In my Heartfelt Leadership Blog I unpack my Heartfelt Leadership Principles in a practical way so that you can make small changes, that make a big difference.  Every Day.
