You'LL Learn

  • We live in a VUCA world (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) where change is a constant and where leadership is essential for success
  • For successful change much depends on who is at the helm at the time of change and the culture that the leader creates and tries to push through the organization
  • Focus on the internal customers and the internal relationships and make sure they are the best they can be to maintain influence in a changing environment
  • In the face of change it is important to take the time to stop and consider the things that are in place that are working that do not need to be changed
  • Personal branding is about how you visually present yourself each day and how you differentiate yourself from other people
  • Build networks and grow your circle of influence inside and outside of your organisation
  • Involving the team in the decision-making process will build engagement and commitment
  • In business sitting on your hands not doing anything because you are not sure that it is going to be right is no way to move forward. You need to pull that trigger, take a decision, move in a forward direction and if it doesn’t work, work out why it hasn’t worked and make it better next time
  • Sharon’s advice – be the person who can help solve a problem and really consider yourself a leader right through your career. Take every opportunity. If you are asked to do something that’s not necessarily in your job spec, which so often in hospitality in hotels, opportunities come up, things change, someone is not available. Take every opportunity. Be a ‘yes’ person. Be the person that they know they can go to who will help, who will try to do whatever it is that needs to be done
  • Her leadership question – it is around people who want to make a difference. “What have you done today that’s made a difference to the business?” It is about taking accountability and wanting to do a good job
