Four Ways Your Leadership Needs to Evolve

Get Carried Away

Oct 19 2022 • 41 mins

When you break businesses down, most are a collection of different people with different brains, different backgrounds and different experiences. So how do you bring all of that wisdom together to make the most of it? Wendy Ryan, the CEO of the management and leadership coaching company Kadabra, walks us through how she helps leaders lead.


Being an entrepreneur who's taking risks means you are eventually going to fail at something. That doesn't mean you stop. Wendy explains how you keep going, growing and building yourself into that leader you want to be.


POINTS:

Why you should think about going into grad-school for more education, even if you're already successful in your field.


The business environment can be so much more inviting and productive when employees feel like they don't have to hide who they are. Hear why Wendy says this is more important today, especially after the pandemic.


Not everyone has the same needs or starts in the same place, even when they're working in the same position.


Being authentic as a leader sometimes means being vulnerable and realizing you don't have all the answers.


Whether we realize it or not, many of us bring our traumas and problems with us to work. When managers create a safe place for everyone to open up, it helps employees balance their personal problems, so they can give more of themselves to their work.
