One-to-one is how leadership is won.
Connection drives results. But what if you don’t know where to start or what to do?
Being a leader comes with many responsibilities and challenges, many of which can be difficult navigating if you don’t yet have a team backing you.
There is a consensus among leaders that connection is an important component of workplace success, but they don’t necessarily know how to implement practices that would support connectivity.
The key is working first on authenticity, compassion, and alignment to support business strategies and your people. Collaboration and compassion go a long way in finding your authentic voice and creating meaningful connections, which helps align yourself with your team and your company.
In this episode of What’s Next! with Tiffani Bova, Dr. Michelle K. Johnston, author of The Seismic Shift in Leadership, discusses the business and leadership need for authenticity, empathy, and connection in the new working world, and how to find that connection.
