What does leadership look like in 2021?
One particular Education Month webinar we’re excited about is What leadership looks like in 2021. A crisis, such as COVID-19, highlights more than ever the importance of great leadership. Throughout 2020, the world witnessed varying leadership styles resulting in a range of outcomes for countries as a whole and for small businesses managing the impact of the pandemic on their family and colleagues.
With this being so topical we wanted to share with our community some key insights from leaders across Xero that apply no matter the size of your team or the objectives you’re trying to achieve.
Leveraging past lessons to lead into the future
The session focuses on key leadership learnings from the past 18 months and how we can use those lessons as we look to 2022 and beyond. You’ll hear from people across each of our offices around the world as well as from our global leadership team including Steve Vamos, CEO, Rachael Powell, CCO, and Anna Curzon, CPO.
“Leadership is about change and supporting change for the better. When you look at it, it’s not technology that’s driving change, it’s people who are. The organisation itself doesn’t change unless the people change. Leadership is really about deeply considering and caring about the impact on people and how they can come on that change journey, contribute to it, and be supported through it” says Steve.
We’ll also share our biggest challenges and lessons learned from the disruptions of the global pandemic, our beliefs on what great leadership looks like and what makes us optimistic about the future.
If you are just starting off on your leadership journey, have been leading a team or business for a while or are somewhere in between, I have no doubt you’ll gain value from this session.
We look forward to connecting with you during our upcoming webinar.
#Humans of Xero
In another session, you can join the Xero leaders from the US and Canada as they discuss a human approach to business.
Leaders will define what culture means to them, discuss Xero’s culture and how our culture contributes to the overall success at Xero.
In addition, our leaders will also discuss why they believe the Xero values contribute to Xero’s success as an organization. This is a very informative session by our leaders as they discuss values and culture and how they resonate with them.
