Am I doing anything right? It’s a question, most professionals – especially leaders – have asked themselves at least once in their career (for some of us on a regular basis). Obviously, the answer is yes but that doesn’t mean the weight and pressures don’t occasionally start to tip the scale in the wrong direction mentally. As leaders, we spend most of our time focused on the challenges of others, of teams, and of the organization. Yet, when do we take care of ourselves as leaders and the problems we face personally? In this session, expect raw honesty of acknowledging the common patterns of challenges such as 'but I am the expert', 'am I adding value", etc. For each common challenge, you'll walk away with tools and concepts to help you be the best leader you can be.
