WATCH: Higher level leadership with Ken Blanchard
We’ve all seen the negative consequences of poor leadership. We ourselves have probably been victims of bad leadership at one point or another. This is because for a lot of leaders in different organizations, it’s a toss-up between delivering results and managing people.
Leaders cannot sustain performance over the long term with this either/or approach. The conditions of the day, especially with the recent disruptions, require a both/and approach to management that places equal emphasis on results and the needs of people. That’s the success formula today’s top companies are using to thrive despite the disruptions, attract the best and brightest, and stay on top.
Leaders can unleash their power and the potential of everyone around them. For Dr. Ken Blanchard, bestselling author and leadership expert who has helped thousands of organizations become more people-oriented, customer-centered, performance-driven, and socially responsible, “When you lead at a higher level, people work together in a way that excites customers and gets results. Leadership is something you do with people—not to people,” Blanchard continues. “We hope to inspire leaders to go beyond short-term thinking and zero in on the right target. We want to teach leaders to empower people to unleash their incredible potential.”
In a one-on-one conversation with top-ranked corporate trainer Boris Joaquin, Blanchard provides the current and rising generation of leaders with a road map for great leadership. Listen in as Boris asks Dr. Blanchard the overarching theme of all his work, writings, speaking and consultancy for the last 40 years. Discover the kind of leadership he thinks the world badly needs today, and how leaders can work towards the greater good.
Counted among the most influential and compassionate leadership and management experts in the world today, Dr. Blanchard is respected for his lifetime of groundbreaking research and thought leadership, especially in the day-to-day management of people and companies. He co-authored more than 65 books including the iconic bestseller The One Minute Manager, together with other groundbreaking works such as Raving Fans and Leading at a Higher Level, to name a few. He has sold over 23 million copies of these books in 47 languages. In 2005 Blanchard was inducted into Amazon’s Hall of Fame as one of the top 25 bestselling authors of all time.
As a renowned author, speaker, and consultant, Ken has also influenced leaders in companies and organizations worldwide to consider and adopt the principles and practice of servant leadership.
Dr. Blanchard is the co-founder of Lead Like Jesus, a worldwide servant leadership ministry. He is also the co-founder and Chief Spiritual Officer of The Ken Blanchard Companies, an international management training and consulting firm that he and his wife, Margie Blanchard, began in 1979 in San Diego, California.
