Oh Captain My Captain

The road towards New Work is riddled with pitfalls. Most of them stem from human behaviour. We are supposed to manage systems and not people and still as humans we need new ways of thinking and acting. We all learn that modern leaders are expected to show a growth mindset, humility, and vulnerability. 

In Jaana’s experience, successful implementation of transformation fails mostly because of a lack of leadership-communication, including showing vulnerability and humility. In her workshop, Jaana shares her insights on successful leadership communication for transformation and change and we discuss, how leaders and change-makers can sharpen their communication skills:

• creating psychological safety by using strategic stories
• walking the line between intimacy and boundaries in sharing personal stories
• the power of nothing: When to speak and when to be silent
