episode 142 – don’t be a flip phone leader: how you can innovate leadership

Maureen Metcalf joins unsuitable this week to talk about how business owners can innovate their leadership style and how it can translate to success.

In the last episode, we talked about innovative leadership and why it’s absolutely necessary to become an innovative leader at the risk of becoming obsolete. We’re thrilled to have Maureen Metcalf, CEO of Metcalf & Associates, back once again to tell us how we can actually become an innovative leader – despite being pulled in a million other different directions.

If you want to assess your own leadership capabilities and kick start innovation in your organization, the best place to start is Metcalf & Associates’ Innovative Leadership Assessment. When you’re done, make sure you’re up-to-date on The Leadership 2050 Competency Model. That’ll give you a good idea of where you are now and what you need to focus on to start truly innovating.

If you want to be a better leader or inspire better leadership within your organization, you will be interested in these other topics discussed in this episode:

  • How leaders can inspire their people (and why this is so important).
  • Why leaders should prioritize becoming an innovative leader, despite having so many other things to invest in.
  • Why bad leadership is a lagging indicator.
