Next Meetup

The Psychology of Leadership
Cillín Hearns, Founder and Director of Results Coaching, will deliver an insightful and often over looked aspect of leadership development. For many people, this is the glass ceiling that prevents them from making the leap from follower to leader. It has been said that, “We rise to the level of our own incompetence.” The challenge with most of us is that we are not aware of the gaps in our competency or how, for that matter, we can move past them. For this reason, we remain stuck in our careers and don’t know how to advance. The higher up the career ladder we go the more pronounced our leadership skills become but what are leadership skills and how can we attain them? The purpose of this presentation is to provide the basis of understanding to those who wish to become leaders of themselves and/or of others. We will explore the importance of leadership skills for career advancement and why there is a different approach needed to learning these skills as opposed to, say, risk analysis. This workshop will create an awareness of what leadership really is and provide an in-depth look at the key competencies needed to become a true leader regardless of title.
