      Become a Revolutionary Leader

      It is impossible to lead employees effectively and empathetically if you are unaware of how you lead yourself. With 95 percent of workers considering changing their jobs post-pandemic (Monster Jobs Survey 2021), we could be facing an unprecedented Leadership Crisis. As a leader, how do you want to lead and what legacy do you want to leave?

      Join Charley Swords as she takes you through the critical characteristics now required of leaders in this post-pandemic world.

      In this presentation, you will learn:

      • The critical leadership characteristics.
      • The essential dimensions to trust.
      • Why mentoring is essential to leadership development

      ABOUT THE SPEAKER

      Charley Swords is passionate about empowering people and continues to inspire others by helping them to identify and believe in their own abilities and in their ultimate potential.

      She loves to help leaders and managers empower themselves and then ultimately their employees, which is key to building high-performing teams. The thinking that the old power practices that are believed to ‘come with the title or position’ is, in today’s world, ineffective and uninspiring for future leaders.

      Charley shares her thoughts in her book Dare To Be A Revolutionary Leader, a practical and comprehensive roadmap to leading and motivating employees with integrity and authenticity. It is filled with simple, effective and insightful exercises, providing a detailed framework to assess and develop your leadership skills.

      Charley has been working with leadership and management teams in various sectors, organizations, countries and cultures for over 30 years. She has studied and learned from many experts, mentors and acclaimed business gurus and authors and she knows that leadership continues to be one of the most observed and least understood phenomena on earth. She helps professionals to transform their mindsets and behaviors to lead more fully and effectively.

      Throughout her extensive career, she has worked with organizations in 27 countries from Boards of Directors and C-Suite Executives, as well as those currently in, or who aspire to step into leadership roles.
