Leadership is often associated with directives, control and authority but really how effective is the tough leadership approach? The challenge of how to be a good leader seems to be a perennial problem.

An increasing challenge has emerged as those being lead become increasingly diverse, in terms of professional skills, demographics and culture, generational attitudes and workplace expectations. The question is then, with leadership responsibility and management obligations isn’t it necessary to be clear, firm and decisive? Or not? What about soft leadership? This is the topic for May and we welcome our artist-intellectual extraordinaire Lisa Philip-Harbutt to share her thoughts on this compelling approach to leadership. Soft diplomacy stops conflict escalation more effectively than hard lines. Soft skills like emotional intelligence help bring empathy and creative solutions into the workplace. By ensuring considered communication, appropriate social etiquette and respectful inclusion soft leaders invite people to engage, share, learn and explore workplace challenges not just fix it. We look forward to your soft leadership experiences and challenges in May and to learning how different leaders manage to cultivate their soft side for team successes, enhanced productivity, workplace well-being and improved organisational resilience.
