I am so pleased to announce this new series Developing tomorrow’s leaders today, with Natalee Holmes. Natalee Holmes is the Director of Conscious Connections. She has worked in counselling, education and training for the bulk of her career. Her areas of expertise are all-around young people – from parenting coaching to youth and adolescent coaching, to continual coaching for a person’s life and career, including subject choice and career studies and training guidance. Her passion is helping prepare young people for the unpredictable future they face. Her flagship programme is called Future Leaders Development Programme and young people around the world are finding great self-awareness and discovering where they will make their biggest impact going forward. Together we will be exploring critical leadership skills and discussing various strategies for their development. Part One of this series focuses on the core skill of Self-awareness, and part two explores collaboration as we focus on the critical skills needed to work effectively within teams. In part 3, we turn our attention to the competencies required to transition from Managing self to managing others in a leadership position. In part 4, we start framing the conversations that need to happen today to plan well for the future ahead. Part 5 is more hands-on as we examine the skills necessary to achieve our visions through deliberate practices like goal setting. Finally, in part 6, we discuss how best to marry our goals with organisational objectives and how to achieve our vision through career development.
Today in part two of this series.
