TEDx Talk: A Question of Leadership

TEDx Talk: A Question of Leadership

At TEDx KingStreetEast, I talk about how to lead change without creating resistance, how to create ownership among followers, and how to sidestep the negative emotions we think are unavoidable during change.

    well spoken Peter. liked it very much. yes, agree that leadership is about inclusion and genuine concern to enable progress of people we work with. it is so amazing to hear perspectives from people rather than merely imposing our own as a leader. half-right thing helps very much in inducing ownership element among the team. novertheless, a goal-oriented navigation of such discussions is of importance as well.

    thanks!

    Well done, Peter. I concur wholeheartedly with your thoughts around developing ownership in others and using questions for myriad benefit/insight. While I have always known the source of the change curve, I loved the way you peeled away the previously unquestioned (for me, at least) parallels between death/dying and other change processes and clearly spelled out the loss of one’s sense of control at the root. Maintaining others’ sense of control/influence is key, indeed. Nail on the head, my friend. Great to “see” you, too…

    Great talk Peter, I really loved it. I gave me a new perspective on how to get people to to what needs to be done (not necessarily what you want them to do). And indeed, humility is very important to everyone, especially for a leader.

    Elegant triangle model to share with the leaders I work with. Also going to try using it to lead myself on projects that I resist doing; and, to give more freedom to the characters in my written work to create themselves and the plot. Many thanks.

    Thanks for sharing your experience, Peter. I had the opportunity to learn these same lessons. Giving up control on people gives control on outcomes. Wrote on these lines in this post.
