Executive Leadership

I often use positive “C” words in leadership development when coaching executive leaders. For example, in Millennials Matter: Proven Strategies for Building Your Next-Gen Leader, I have 3 sections:
    • Character,
    • Confidence, and
    • Collaboration.
For this SISU Courage series, I’m using the same structure. Yet, “C” words aren’t always positive!

Chat GPT has been a part of almost every leadership development conversation I've had in the last couple of weeks.  How is AI impacting our culture, our education, our very identity? I've been discussing this for a while. See this article in Leadership Now: How to Be an Engaging Leader in a World of Robotics, AI, and Digitization. I thought this viewpoint interesting to the ongoing discussion. What are your thoughts? What are you seeing?

Some economic experts claim we live in the Era of Exponential Progress. Likewise, most executive leaders report that their leadership strategy challenges are growing exponentially also.

 They want their vision to be a hope-filled future. Yet, something seems to stand in the way. What is it? Is it Fear?  If yes, then I believe that this Era of Exponential Growth calls for a special brand of courage – Sisu Courage–! But, what is SISU??

Those who follow my leadership development strategies know that I often talk about accountability and personal responsibility. When writing articles, I want to include the concept every single time. When keynoting, it’s always a key point. Some even refer to me as the “Accountability Queen.” 😊 What fuels my commitment to accountability and personal responsibility as a core leadership performance principle?
