JHB – A Call to Courage – Who we are is how we lead
February 12, 2020 @ 17:30 - 19:00 SAST
Session Speaker: Aneshrie Yasar
This keynote is based on empirical research by Dr. Brené Brown. Dr. Brené Brown is waking up the world with her research and her New York Times #1 bestseller book Dare to Lead, on growing brave leaders and more courageous cultures. Her research shows that a daring leader is someone who cultivates a culture in which brave work, tough conversations, and whole hearts are the expectation. We all lead in our lives. Daring leaders are self-aware, hold themselves and others accountable, understand their values, lead with empathy and connection, take smart risks that lead to innovation, reset quickly after disappointments and setbacks, and give and receive feedback – especially when it’s tough. Leadership is all about relationships and to be in relationship (with anyone) is to be vulnerable. Every single day, leaders are called to navigate uncertainty, risk, and emotional exposure – the only choice is to do it consciously or unconsciously; to lean into the vulnerability or to push it away. The equation is simple: Invulnerability in leadership breeds disengagement in culture. Re-humanizing work requires courageous leadership. It requires leaders who are willing to take risks and embrace vulnerability.
