Lead as the Best Version of Yourself, Webinar for Cyber Security Leaders Who Want to Build a Winning Team

5 Shifts that will bring out the best in you and your team

Are you tired of trying to fit yourself into a single leadership ideal? Here's the real deal -- there is no single leadership ideal. You are free to be yourself and to lead with authenticity. This increases your credibility, your energy, and your performance.

This webinar is for Cyber Security leaders who want to build winning teams that bring out the very best performance in themselves and their employees. 

Building a winning team reduces the risk of a breach and improves your response time and resilience if a compromise occurs. It greatly improves the likelihood that you will be seen as a partner rather than a scapegoat.

We will discuss 5 key shifts you can make right now that will help you:

  • Avoid bad leadership imitations and copycats - lead with authenticity and sincerity that builds trust with your boss, your peers, and your employees.
  • Lead with confidence and energy; stop burning out yourself and others. Confidence and energy improve your responsiveness and resilience.
  • Avoid toxic roles for yourself and your employees; slash the probability of insider attacks or unengaged employees.
  • Hire more intentionally and effectively so that you put the right talent in the right roles and avoid toxic employees that increase the insider threat.
  • Be a better mentor so that you can help your employees bring the best versions of themselves to work each day - this will dramatically improve employee engagement and retention.
  • Help others excel by putting them in the right position with the right support - this will improve your prevent strategies, incident response and resilience.
  • Communicate more effectively with your board and boss so that you get the resources, guidance, and support you need to excel -- you become a partner in success rather than a scapegoat.

Different people lead differently - build on that diversity

“SLA’s leader archetypes gave us a framework to discuss the ways that people lead differently and how we celebrate that diversity as we build commitment to a common culture. This is already benefiting our retention, engagement and morale.”
