The Future of Leadership with Connson Locke

Jun 16, 2021, 02:00 PM

Connson Locke is an incredible professional lecturer in management at the London School of Economics, where she teaches on leadership Organisational Behaviour and negotiation. She is also the author of Make Your Voice Heard, with a particular emphasis on how you can boost your presence and your personal impact in the workplace, especially working remotely. We spend quite a bit of time delving into her experience over 30 years, working as an educator and a consultant in the Asia Pacific, North America, Australia and Europe. And so we honed in on a lot of the cross cultural communicational issues and barriers, how we understand and navigate power structures across different cultures. We also look at what it takes to manage upwards more effectively with compassion and empathy, and we delve a little bit deeper into what are some of the knowledge bombs that she's sharing with her students to prepare them for the world of work, and how you can use some of these to really help facilitate growth on your teams and across your company.


“If you listen to really amazing speakers like Martin Luther King Jr, and just listen to what he does with his voice, there's so much more we can do with our voice, and we just don’t” - Connson
