Join us for the next session in our Boardroom ready series with Catherine McGregor, Author and Independent Advisor, who will be talking about Storytelling and Authentic Leadership

Duration: 1 hour

Event type: Webinar

Provided by: RPC

Many professional people have a challenging relationship with being a leader. For many women, given that leadership role models may be lacking, there’s an additional challenge.

The blueprints for finding a style of leadership that resonates with us and is authentic is often not there in our organisation. Authenticity in leadership is increasingly seen as desirable. It’s about being yourself. But what if your sense of self doesn’t include seeing yourself as a leader? How can you step into leadership but also keep connected with what makes you, you?

Storytelling is a fundamental means to connect with others. It’s also a way that leaders can show their authenticity and humanity. Storytelling will help leaders coalesce others around a purpose. But how can you build narratives around yourself and your leadership which are authentic but also allow you room to grow professionally?

In this session, author and management consultant Catherine McGregor will outline some ideas and practical techniques which can allow you to find your stories as a leader.
