High Calibration Leadership – for visionaries with their feet on the ground

*How do we as individuals lead our teams to survive in these very challenging times?

*Is it really possible to get more done by doing less?

*How do we set free creativity and energy in ourselves and others when pressure and fear surround us?

*Why is it better for me and my business to ‘play to play' rather ‘play to win'?

* Why won't customers and colleagues put up with corporate BS anymore?

In this talk, Deirdre looks at the new paradigm for Leadership in 2012, focussing on four areas; INTEGRITY, INTENTION, INTUITION & BANISHING RESENTMENTS. As she says, 'I just wish I knew all of this when I made massive mistakes leading my own company.'
