Although Lisa Copeland specializes in sales, her tips are just as helpful for business leaders. When speaking to audiences, Lisa encourages attendees to be fierce. They should be fearless and relentless while engaging with the right people and executing their plan flawlessly. Following Lisa’s advice will make you a better leader with a fierce go-getter attitude, which can serve to help you in the competitive business world.
Be a transformational leader.
Motivational keynote speaker Matt Mayberry teaches audiences that in order to stand out from the rest and actually make a difference, you must be a transformational leader. Transformational leadership is all about the impact you leave on others, not simply having authority over the rest of your team and calling the shots. More than just a promotion or new title you received, leadership is about how you help people reach their potential and discover that they too can be strong leaders.
Transformational leaders create change and motivate those around them. This type of leader will inspire others and give them the tools they need to become leaders themselves. Moreover, successful leaders lead by example, motivating others to maximize their own success as well as the success of the organization.
Dr. Todd Dewett, also known as the “professor of authenticity” takes a similar approach as Matt Mayberry when it comes to leadership. Todd advises leaders everywhere to be authentic, meaning they should maintain an open and honest relationship with their team. This will allow them to see you as a manager or mentor rather than as an intimidating boss. Being able to relate to employees will allow you to build trust with them. One thing to avoid, however, is getting too personal with employees. This can backfire you in more ways than one. Be authentic — show your team the real you.
