Welcome to Leading Through Challenge
The Leading through challenge show explores how we can improve our ability to lead when navigating adversity. When things are going well, leadership can seem easy. Things happen the way they are supposed to, great work gets done in a timely manner, and everyone has a positive attitude. However, being a leader isn’t supposed to be easy, and thankfully we are supplied with a consistent stream of challenges. We’re currently in the midst of one of the biggest challenges that we’ve faced for a while. There is a lot of uncertainty, there is a lot of fear, and there is a lot of opportunity to lead Leaders are champions of challenge and need to provide guidance and support to make tough times easier for others. If you fear challenges, that fear will be passed on to the people who follow you. Our role is to lead our people through navigating a challenge and to enable them to come out the other side stronger. In the show we chat with experts in leadership, trainers, coaches, mentors, and practitioners. Each of the guest brings a different viewpoint on leadership and practical tips on how we can lead better through challenge.
