Kay’s business background and experience of 40+ years has afforded her the opportunity to focus on leadership challenges. Working at various professional levels in large and small companies, encompassing those that were publicly traded or privately held, for profit and
not-for-profit, in the private and public sector, and in manufacturing and service arenas, have provided Kay with a wealth of hands-on experience. Just a few of her areas of expertise, in addition to Leadership Development, are human resources, training and workshops, strategic planning & facilitation, leading/consulting on culture and change, succession planning and individualized career development.
Our primary focus in working together will be without a doubt LEADERSHIP. Leadership at ALL levels of any organization, whether big, little or somewhere in between. In the coming months we will be announcing other new additions to what GCI will have in its toolbox!
One term you will be hearing from us a lot will be Atypical Leadership. We will explain what we mean by that and what it means for all of you, our readers, in future issues. For this month, courtesy of Kay, let’s hit the highlights of an article she read that hits the mark on what we will be exploring in 2013.
All successful LEADERS share five practices.
- They challenge the process.
- They inspire a shared vision
- Leaders enable others to act
- Leaders model the way
- Leaders Encourage the heart
In 2013 the GCI newsletter will be going through eachone of these 5 points….and much more. One of the key elements of the newsletter this year will be challenging YOU to think outside the box. We’ll be sharing real-world stories exemplifying the elements of leadership we will be talking about and talking to. And most important of all, WHERE are our future leaders going to come from? One key thing to keep in mind going forward will be that we both believe strongly you don’t have to have the title “manager”, “director”, “exec” by your name to be a leader. Leaders show themselves in a variety of ways and situations.
