Great leadership - it's who you are, not what you do - LinkedIn LIVE

By David Lawrence |

Great leaders - born or made?

There is no doubt great leaders rise to the top in times of crisis - but how are they defined and what makes them different? Are they born or can you learn to be a great leader?

Check out our video of the LinkedIn LIVE event where we talked with author and renowned industry expert Tim Spiker about the traits of great leaders and look at ways to become one.


The areas Tim covered included:

  • Exploring the meaning of being 'inwardly sound and others focused'
  • How trust builds engagement which in turn builds performance
  • Why 77% of a leader's effectiveness is misunderstood
  • How values are becoming more important for leading teams
