Image Component needs to be configured.

Have you ever met someone who seems to have a natural gift for leading people?

They appear blessed with an innate understanding of how people work, how to engage them and get the best out of them. It can often seem like they have superpowers.

The truth is, effective, modern leadership isn’t supernatural. Leaders aren’t born; they are shaped through a set of skills - available to everyone - that can be learned, practised and honed over time. The key is being intentional about the leader you want to be.

Whether you’re a start-up, NFP or a multi-national organisation, the impact of a modern approach to leadership that focuses on human connection is priceless – allowing you to better connect with others, collaborate more effectively and inspire those around you.

Join us as we speak with Pete Shepherd, leadership coach, Founder of Human Periscope and former Head Coach of Seth Godin’s altMBA, who has worked with executive leaders from Fortune 500 companies and brands as diverse as Google, Slack, Woolworths, Westpac, the Royal Australian Navy and UNICEF.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • The 3 superpowers in question
  • Why these skills are critical now and in the future
  • The role recognition plays in becoming a modern leader
  • Practical, simple and effective ways to develop these skills
