Feeling like there's more to leadership than just your job title? Ready to discover how to build genuine influence and guide your team to success?

In this thought-provoking episode of "Manager to Manager," Kamaria sits down with Ned Parks, a distinguished leadership coach with an extensive background in guiding teams through transformational change, both in military and civilian contexts.

Ned unveils the intricacies of leading without leaning on the crutch of positional power, presenting three pivotal strategies for new and seasoned leaders alike:

  1. Embracing Vulnerability: How showing your human side can build stronger, trust-based relationships within your team.
  2. The Art of Clear Expectations: Why setting and communicating clear guidelines is foundational to team alignment and success.
  3. Valuing Every Voice: Learning to listen and incorporate the diverse perspectives and skills of your team, including the unique strengths veterans bring to the civilian workforce.

Ned emphasizes the shift from a directive to a consultative leadership style, encouraging leaders to engage deeply with their team members to unearth and utilize their insights for collective growth and improvement.

The conversation also delves into Ned's personal journey of growth and self-discovery in leadership roles. Reflecting on his experiences, he highlights the continuous path of learning and the significant impact leaders can have on their teams and individual lives by adopting a mindset of service and support.

Through sharing his insights and personal lessons, Ned aims to motivate current and aspiring managers to redefine their approach to leadership. It's not about commanding from the front but walking alongside your team, guiding them with humility, understanding, and a shared vision for success.
