LearnChair Radio Leadership Podcast

Jun 28, 2016

LearnChair Radio host Bob Dragone talks with speaker, author and coach Cy Wakeman about the principles of Reality-Based Leadership. Cy explains how she came upon her unique approach to leadership development and how it allows an organization's leaders to cut through the everyday drama of the workplace to deliver better results.  In the discussion, Cy steps us through how Reality-Based Leadership is about becoming the revolutionary new type of leader needed today—one who can change the way people think about and perceive their circumstances. A Reality-Based Leader deals with the facts, clarifies roles, gives clear and direct feedback, instills accountability, and helps others focus their efforts on their contribution (and not on the drama!).  Cy gives examples of success in the workplace and how leaders she has worked with have increased productivity through her methods.  Cy's opinion that a leader requires empathy rather than sympathy is a notable addition to our list of characteristics for good leadership. j5x62cx2
