with Donna Ladkin and Chellie Spiller
What can the Maori traditions of New Zealand teach you about leadership?
Recorded at the 2018 International Leadership Conference in West Palm Beach, this episode explores embodied leadership and way-showing. With influences from Maori culture, guests Donna Ladkin and Chellie Spiller reveal way-showing and embodied leadership as ideal practices for leaders to use when navigating uncharted territory where the path forward is unclear.
Ethics help guide you as a leader, too. They’re critical to build trust and inspire followership.
Together, ethics, way-showing, and embodied leadership provide hope that you have the ability to amplify your impact. They’re a great alternative to “tired” frameworks of leadership.
