Pretty obvious, but to lead well you need to “Show up”
This starts from the basics of actually being physically present, being visible as a leader, connecting and being available for your team and partners. It also means “Showing up emotionally” - being aware of your own emotions and your impact and understanding others emotions and their responses and needs. As always don’t assume – ask!
It also means “Showing up authentically” in the uniqueness of you, your strengths and superpowers as well as your vulnerability (again a superpower), so you can be your whole self at work and as a leader. Being authentic so your behaviours are aligned with your values and beliefs and what is important to you – your purpose. It may mean speaking up or having a difficult conversation….
