On leadership success and significance

We recently completed Connect, our (eighth) annual six-month leadership experience for 90 people including senior leaders from engineering, media, financial services, housing, energy and retail. These are leaders on their way up, average age early to mid forties, bright, ambitious, keen to learn.

Being Best in Class, not just OK in Class

Imagine that 24 senior leaders, your peers, were coming to where you work to understand what you do and how you do it. What would you tell them? How would you bring the essence of your organisation to life? What would you share (and not share!) to ensure they left feeling inspired to improve?

Ever have days when you can’t be arsed? Hear what Greg Dyke, Jude Kelly and Martin Narey have to say….

At On Your Marks in 2013, one of our members was brave enough to ask what we all want to know… it’s easy to stand up and talk about leadership but surely there are days when even our first class speakers lack a little motivation of their own?

Jude Kelly, Artistic Director of Southbank Centre – Top Tips on Leadership

Jude Kelly was amongst a fantastic line-up of speakers that joined us at our ‘On Your Marks’ event, part of our Wavelength Connect 2012 programme. Here she shares her punchy and provocative tips on how to be a good leader.  Drawing on her wealth of experience as Artistic Director of the Southbank Centre one thing she encourages leaders is to embrace dilema – art is full of dilema and nuance – don’t run from it.
