“Too Nice to Lead” – Passive Barriers to Leadership

November 19, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Do you find yourself apologizing too much? Do you downplay your accomplishments? When assignments are handed out, do you find yourself taking on additional projects even though you’re already stretched pretty thin? You’re not alone. Leadership welcomes all types – but by being so “nice,” you may find yourself struggling to capture the attention you deserve.

You’re a leader now (or you want to be!). You need to recognize these passive behaviors, acknowledge them, and find a way to translate them into strong leadership skills. This session will address the most common passive traits and help you identify ways to turn them into strengths. You’ll become a better leader by rewriting the story behind who you are and why you’re “too nice to lead.”

Attendees will get suggestions and ideas to:

  • Identify Delegating without dictating
  • Objectively overcoming modesty
  • Building a business case for your needs
  • Turning apologies into gratitude
  • Developing a personal advisory board
