Too much talent is being wasted in organisations where biases exist not only against minority groups but also against certain leadership styles. Because of our traditional view of a ‘strong’ leader, talented quieter professionals, both men and women, are overlooked due to their style and impression before they are given the opportunity to demonstrate their competence and substance.
Ultimately the book is an invitation for all of us to expand our view of good leadership to enhance the quality of leadership as well as increase the likelihood of making more progress on diversity in leadership.
Join us at the book launch to hear from Megumi and her Quietly Powerful Leader interviewees about how our quiet nature is our leadership strength and how we need more Quietly Powerful leaders now, more than ever.
When you register, you can also pre-purchase to book to ensure you receive a signed copy of the book at the book launch.
Megumi Miki is an author, speaker and consultant in leadership and culture, with a background in strategy, economics and finance. With a client list including Computershare, DHHS, EY, JBWere, NAB, Roche and smaller for-profit and not-for-profit organisations, Megumi helps leaders unlock their potential by being smart together, not on their own.
In the uncertain, changing, global and interconnected world, Megumi believes that the ‘alpha’ or ‘hero’ leadership style alone is outdated and inadequate. Her work on developing Quietly Powerful leaders aims to expand the definition of what good leadership looks like while empowering quieter professionals and those outside majority groups to fulfil their potential.
