What makes a true leader and how can Small Business owners evolve to take that step up?

| Tuesday March 17

Small Biz Matters – a half hour program each week where you can work ON your business rather than IN it.
with Alexi Boyd, broadcaster, advocate and small business owner.
Date: 17 March 2020

The concept of Leadership is a bit topical … but for all the wrong reasons in the current climate. But focussing ourselves back on small business owners being life-long learners, let’s learn about how to develop leadership skills.

So what does it mean to be a real leader in your small business?  Is it possible to learn these practical skills quickly or does it take years of real-life experience in order to lead from the front?

Who better to ask for advice than the CEO of the Leadership Institute, Dana Lightbody. The institute’s aim is to create a singular point of contact for all leaders, regardless of industry. It can be lonely at the top but regardless of what industry you are in; leadership is universal.

Welcome to the show Dana.

Topics we’ll be covering:

  • How do you define true leadership?
  • Tell the listeners about your career journey and why you’re passionate about supporting women in leadership positions?
  • In terms of leadership do you think a gender gap exists in reality or is it more of a hangover from the 1990s?
  • What do you think it takes in the current climate to become a true leader?
    • practical strategies to improve your leadership skill set for both small businesses and corporate
    • Is the evolution a slow one or does it take an opportunity to present itself which you grab onto and run with it?

(Dana to include stats when talking through these points.

  • Talk about the upcoming Empowered Woman event on 26 March 2020.
