Leadership – the power is in the story:
Brendan is a big believer in authentic leadership – and the power of telling your story.
Leadership can’t be taught but it can be learned (partly through) reflection upon, and
the absorption of, the leadership that we see in others.
If you are professing to lead any group of people, people have to know your own story. You have to reveal yourself, and
you reveal it in all kinds of ways. But, if you don’t believe in yourself, what you’re doing, and why you’re doing it, no one
else is ever going to.
• The power of authentic leadership
• Learning leadership through reflection
• How to lead through telling your story
