Future Leadership: To Be a Voice, Not an Echo

May 11, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free – $25.00

CCEs: 1.0 Resource

“I am not what happened to me. I am who I choose to be.” These words became my mantra when the most terrible thing in my life occurred – a brutal war where countless people perished. During this war, my family lost two loved ones: a young 25-year-old nephew, who was killed by Russian soldiers, and the grandfather of my sons, who passed away due to a broken heart.

Despite the devastation, I managed to save my children’s lives and create a new reality for them in Germany, starting life from scratch in a new country. Through the pain and suffering, I underwent my own rebirth and became a source of support for others. As a coach, I took responsibility in my profession and became the fourth President of ICF Ukraine. Leading during wartime was challenging, and I had no prior experience to rely on.

In this webinar, I will share my leadership journey, from losing everything in one day due to war to becoming the leader of a global professional organization in just eight months. I will discuss how I not only preserved the organization during wartime but also developed it, supported colleagues, helped them grow, and implemented significant social projects for Ukrainian leaders. Join me to hear about my story of resilience, leadership, and hope in the face of adversity.

Learning objectives are:

  1. The organization is a mirror of the leader’s personality. What should be the leader of the future?
  2. The scale of the organization and projects is the scale of the leader’s mind: 5 tips for effective leadership in conditions of complete uncertainty.
  3. Leader identity map. How to combine the spiritual and social goals of a leader? Author’s model.

Outcomes for attendees are: 

  1. Participants will understand that the greatest challenges in life bring growth and development.
  2. Participants will be convinced that big catastrophes in a person’s life make a request not for transformation, but for transition. How is transformation different from transition?
  3. Participants will understand how to develop their potential to hear their true voice. How to sound with your own voice, and not be a repeater of other people’s thoughts and worldview?
