Doctor Mx Who - Building Out of This World Leadership Capability

Both effective leadership skills and management skills play a critical role in successful career and project management. Leaders motivate and inspire, whereas managers typically provide control and operational oversight. There are many aspects to being a good leader, and we'll talk about how to build and strengthen your leadership skills.  Anyone can be a leader by building leadership skills and taking acts of leadership.

In the context of “Doctor Who”, the classic long-running TV programme, this presentation talks about effective leadership, by moving above the typical focus on specific areas, and putting it all together to build the whole package of who you are, what you represent, and how you operate towards being an effective leader.

Adopting a unique style, this presentation has leadership content that is applicable to managers, project managers, or anyone seeking to increase their leadership capability and impact.  You don’t have to be a Dr Who fan to obtain value from this session, but you will enjoy it more if you are a Dr Who fan!

In making reference to Doctor Who, yet applying this topic to all of us, the profession-neutral title “Mx” replaces “Doctor”, resulting in the presentation title of “ Doctor Mx Who”.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Leadership skills

  • Managing teams
