Act, speak and think like a leader?

If not, what's in your way?


Successful leadership is about acting and thinking like a leader, activating your best self and unlocking potential in others. So to define purpose, build credibility and exercise influence, start by asking hard questions about who you are and what you stand for.


As a senior executive, you need to set the direction and influence others – at times without authority. How can you do that if your perceived ‘fatal flaws’ are getting in the way of you achieving your best as a leader? Just 20%* of employees say they have the chance to do their best work every day. Do you?
