Can you imagine building a house without a foundation? Yet, how often do we try to fix something on the outside when the problem really lies on the inside – in the foundation of how we think. In this presentation, Cheryl reveals how doing the tough but critical inside work of leadership is the most powerful way to build your leadership legacy. She takes the description of leadership way beyond the positional definition and demonstrates the importance of developing the ability to connect with and influence others. Before we can excel at effectively connecting and influencing others, we have to learn how to lead ourselves. This can be the most challenging role a leader ever faces. With the framework she developed by studying all the great models of leadership, and through her own unique and varied experiences with good and bad leadership, Cheryl will provide inspiration along with practical advice on how to overcome today's leadership challenges. This content can be presented with great energy and humor, or facilitated in an interactive format that will enhance group learning and development. Either way, it will change how you think about your leadership role.
