- Approach leadership as a partnership

Ken Blanchard believes the world is in desperate need of a new leadership model - and that model is servant leadership where leaders partner with their people to set and attain goals.
He asks one question of leaders, “Are you here to serve or to be served?” How you answer this question reflects a fundamental difference in the way you approach leadership. If you believe leadership is all about you, where you want to go and what you want to achieve, then your leadership, by default will be more self-focused and self-centered.
On the other hand, if your leadership revolves around meeting the needs of the organisation and the people working for it, you will make different choices that will reveal a more “others-focused” approach. Ken Blanchard will explain how to partner with your staff to inspire great performance that leads to personal and organisational success.
