POSITIVE LEADERSHIP: PUTTING THE PEOPLE BACK INTO PEOPLE MANAGEMENT
Unpredictability is very much still with us. In order to adapt successfully, organisations need to have adaptable employees. Perceived organisational support is a prerequisite for employee adaptability. Employees need to feel safe to experiment, take risks and explore the unknown. Contrary to what some may say, positive leadership does not lead to reckless optimism but rather it creates an environment that reinforce agility and adaptability.
In this talk, Organisational Behaviourist, Siphiwe Moyo shows leaders how to:
LEADING IN TIMES OF CRISIS
And, as the pace of change rapidly increases, many have already reached their capacity to absorb and respond to their environment. In non-turbulent times, a balance of push and pull strategies is often enough for a leader to get results through others but in times of crisis a little more is required. In times of crisis, leaders need to communicate more not less. Leading in turbulent times can tear leaders apart.
Hard times can become even lonelier for leaders, since they must project a positive but realistic spirit. Siphiwe shows leaders research based strategies on how to get that balance between being candid and still projecting a positive spirit right.
LEADING SELF: GETTING RESULTS THROUGH YOUR OWN PERSONAL EFFORT
The toughest person you will ever have to lead is you. Leadership Attribution Error has the potential to be a problem in the workplace. Too much emphasis on the role of leader means that followers may abdicate responsibility for their motivation levels, beliefs, values, behaviours and ultimately performance.
Though he highlights factors that may affect employee performance, in this keynote, Siphiwe teaches audiences how to lead themselves.
In this keynote Siphiwe argues that leading other people is not very complicated. There are three ways to get results through other people:
1. You can inspire them through a compelling vision
2. You can induce them incentives
3. And if all else fails, you can just threaten them.
