Strategies for the LGBTQ+ Leader to be the King or Queen of Their Jungle
As a member of the LGBTQ+ Community, did you know that you naturally have some amazing leadership skills inside you, based upon your experience, that you may not be capitalizing on? Now, it’s not to say that our straight brothers and sisters don’t have the potential to be rock star leaders, but—through many of our shared experiences being LGBTQ+ folks—we’ve had the opportunity to truly develop such skills as leveraging empathy, shaping our culture, being courageous, and being authentic. These skills are some of the most sought-after leadership competencies in the workplace today … and they’re already inside you, dear LGBTQ+ professional!
Based upon over twenty-five years’ experience in the leadership development, change management, and diversity and inclusion consulting space, Dr. Steve Yacovelli identifies the six leadership traits—being authentic, leading with courage, having empathy, effective communication, building relationships, and influencing organizational culture—that can greatly increase any LGBTQ+ Leader’s effectiveness, and ways in which you as an LGBTQ+ Leader can increase your own leadership potential through cultivating these six leadership competencies.
Whether you’re a seasoned senior executive or a just-starting-out shiny new leader, Pride Leadership is your stop to hone your natural LGBTQ+ leadership awesomeness, gather a few kernels of wisdom to immediately apply in your workplace, and amp up your leadership-self to be just that much better-er. In short: you’ll be a more effective, impactful, and inclusive leader after reading this book. Oh, and you’ll have a good time learning along the way, too!
