Product description

Product Description

Leadership has long been recognised as a critical area for business.

Significant resources are devoted annually to identifying and developing emerging leaders. Yet the results are not promising. A high proportion of leaders are considered by their followers to be incompetent. Why? They are deemed to be untrustworthy, lacking the qualities one expects in great leaders.

What does that mean? Followers say their leaders aren't treating them as human beings; aren't recognising the unique capabilities; aren't helping them develop those capabilities and achieve the career they are seeking. Those same leaders aren't engaging and providing an environment for those individuals to do great work.

A key reason for this glaring deficiency is the Imposter Syndrome: a distorted and commonly inaccurate self-belief that leaves sufferers feeling they don't measure up. They are unable to see their successes or recognise the value they bring to the table. In those circumstances, their natural behaviour is to protect themselves and seek to control their environment to reduce their vulnerability and potential exposure as fakes and frauds. When this behaviour occurs in leaders - and 70% of successful people experience it - what results is often dysfunctional or even toxic leadership.

The cost to business is enormous. Innovation - the lifeblood of business - is stifled. High performing teams are cut of at the knees. Engagement is diminished. Self-Protection becomes the only game in town.

In such volatile and uncertain times, we need leaders who are resilient, agile and flexible. Those capabilities are virtually impossible where your leaders experience the Imposter Syndrome.

Learn more about it, why it's such a critical business issue - one that's now been proven by University of Salzburg - learn how to spot it and what to do about it for yourself or your leaders.
