Breakfast with Tracey Swanepoel

Escaping the Leadership Riptide: 4 Ways to Lead Differently. 

We invite you to join us for a breakfast talk by Tracey Swanepoel.
According to Gallup, 87% of employees worldwide are disengaged… which means that they see work as a necessary evil, a life sentence, something to “one day be free from”.  Sadly, for many of us, work is little more than a four-letter word.
This widespread and growing disillusionment with the world of work is a crisis that manifests practically as poor safety, lack of productivity, cost overruns, absenteeism unrealistic wage demands. These are all  issues plaguing boardrooms.

Aren’t leaders meant to create workplaces in which passion, ingenuity and imagination run riot? Where engagement levels hit all-time highs? To do this, leaders at all levels need to lead differently. Need to actually DO things differently. As Mintzberg said “Leadership, like swimming can’t be learned by reading about it.”
In this inspirational and practical session, we will discuss 4 ways in which
leaders need to lead differently:
  • Selling the dream
  • Listening
  • Visual storytelling
  • Focusing on strengths
