Leaders, Followers and Trusted Advisors
Wednesday, June 29, 2022
You may be interested in developing your leadership skills as a BA, but have you ever stooped to think about the quality of your followership skills?
We live in a world where the quality of leadership is considered to be absolutely critical to the success of projects and organisations. But followership skills are not mentioned, and the concept of being a follower has negative connotations. Many BAs do not want traditional leadership positions, but we do want to be heard, for our work have impact and to have appropriate influence on decisions. This role is often referred to as being a ‘trusted advisor’.
This session will explore current leadership theories, how to develop as a follower and what it really means to be a trusted advisor.
