Leadership at Yale

So where have I been? Because it’s been ages. Two words: America and Canada. I’ll come onto Canada later. Today we start with America.

In October I had the most amazing time in New Haven, about an hour from New York. I went to Yale University  to study Leadership. I met some amazing women from around the world; Ghana, Austria, France, California, Mexico, United Emirates… and the list go on. It was truly  humbling.

I learnt a lot. In fact my action plan has 63 entries.  There was however,  one binding lesson running through all the topics. Weather we were discussing  negotiation, decision making, giving feedback,  innovation or crisis management.

I learnt that good leadership has nothing to do with you and your own personal needs. It’s about being in service to your team  and, the objectives of the organisation. Nothing to do with you!  Not one bit. Being a leader means to serve others. Full stop.

Enjoy!
