Event Details

Are you a born leader or a reluctant manager? Many of us have been in the position where we have been “accidental leaders”. Some people are promoted to a management position without formal training, or end up taking on leadership responsibilities without the credit. The “Accidental Leader” series explores leadership in the 21st century, where leaders can be born, made…or just appear!

Leadership is no longer the exclusive domain of senior management. We are all called to be leaders. In this session we will consider the difference between leadership and management, how effective leadership can make a difference in the work environment and introduce a powerful framework for leading others. This event is a great opportunity for developing leaders, and understanding how you can become an effective leader and make a real difference. 

The session will incorporate a mix of business theory with interactive audience engagement. There will be time at the beginning and at the end of each session for networking with fellow peers. 

Session Facilitators: Thomas Chalmers and Russell Borland, Partners of Leading Figures.
