Servant Leadership that #GSD (Get’s Security Done!)
Are you tired of hearing that most Security Projects fail because of poor communication? The frustration you feel is probably because you instinctively understand the following:
- Projects don’t fail; they don’t have a heartbeat or a social security number. People fail…
- Communication is simply the vehicle we use to lead…
- Blaming failure on communication is the greatest obstacle to addressing the lack of leadership skills that lead to undesirable outcomes.
If we were to simplify the success criteria for a Security Leader, it would be “they enable their stakeholders to digitally transform and maintain high levels of consumer confidence through security and compliance.”
When organizations focus on improving communication, they generally add processes and guidelines that increase the workload on teams that are already struggling to deliver the desired results. But it’s easier to use communication as the scapegoat than it is to admit they “suck at leadership!”
The solution is to focus on developing the leadership skills of each of their team members regardless of their title … The basic foundation of an agile organization, an agile mindset and teamwork is that “everyone is a leader.” Increasing the Leadership Quotient (LQ) in an organization, and getting “lean” with process will lead to more successful projects and desired outcomes.
This presentation will provide the audience with 2 simple game-changing techniques to earn credibility and 6 leadership techniques that can be put into practice immediately. J. Scott, Founder @120VC and author of “The Irreverent Guide to Project Management, An Agile Approach to Enterprise Project Management,” and “It’s Never Just Business, It’s About People.” will show you that great leaders aren’t just born, they can be made!
