Defining Your Leadership Brand with Chrisa Zindros Boyce
Clarifying your dream, not listening to your ‘chicken’ and power shifting.
Most of us have a sense that if we’re really brilliant at our job, we’ll eventually get promoted to a leadership role, but something we often don’t realize is that doing and leading are two different things. And being great at doing, doesn’t mean that you’ll be great at leading. That’s because leadership is not an inherent skill — it's learned and trained. Chrisa Zindros Boyce is an expert on helping people figure out their leadership brand, and has some great insights on power shifting, and the importance of having a dream.
Chrisa has been a consultant, executive coach, and educator with the Handel Group since 2009. She works with serial entrepreneurs, perennial corporate executives, and established individual contributors around the world from a broad range of sectors including Finance, Legal Media, Entertainment, Fashion, Technology, and Government, to teach them how to define their leadership brand, strengthen their competitive edge and foster relationships that impact the bottom line.
Comfort is often a big reason for not changing. Chrisa explains how micro-changes and small nudges can be more effective in adding up to big changes, particularly when it comes to getting buy-in for innovative ideas. She also explains why climbing up the salary and responsibility ladder in an organization often decreases people’s ability to do their jobs and why having dreams for your career is so important (rather than getting stuck in goals). We dive into power shifting and discuss how we can make the mental shift to avoid listening to your ‘chicken’ and conceding defeat before you even begin through rescripting and reframing. Of course, all of this ties into how you can become a stronger leader and innovator — find out how with Chrisa.

- be a high-impact, high-value member that ignites change
