Leadership & Communication Insights

Dear ,

Welcome to the new edition of the Insights.

The feature article in this newsletter is about the qualities of high performance teams. I propose a simple model: TTA - Think, Talk, Act. Read the article below to find out why, for instance, you need to avoid the combination "Think & Act but no Talk" at all cost. 

Have you already started to think about your year end or new year activities with your organisation? I have developed a new program on Change Leadership that could be perfectly suited for this occasion.

During this keynote or workshop we explore strategies to help you and and your organisation to deal with change in a highly engaging way. Maybe something for your upcoming event? You can read about this as well as about a brand-new open program on "The Art of Self-Leadership" below.

Some of you will have also noticed that I have increased the number of posts that I publish (every 5-10 days now on my blog and on LinkedIn). To keep you updated I have also included the most-viewed article "The Shark and the Coconut: Lessons for Leaders" as well as "How to be successful in a remote role" in below's overview.

Wishing you a great rest of the week!

Kind regards,

Lars Sudmann

This is a simple model that has been in my toolbox for some years. Read the article to see what are the pitfalls in this model and how to achieve best performance in all three areas.

Then this new program is for you. It combines the best lessons from my company self-leadership programs as well as the key strategies from my entrepreneur coaching that I have conducted in the past.
