What makes the difference between an effective leader and an average leader? According to Croft Edwards of CROFT + Company, the answer is flow, LeadershipFlow. True leaders need to embody what they want from their employees, so they can bring the best out of their organization.
Croft Edwards helps leaders and organizations grow and produce high-performing team members with his unique methodology, called LeadershipFlow. He’s joining host Bernadette to discuss more ways that leaders fail to create a culture of effective communication, the biggest roadblock being leaders themselves.
With a background as an ontological coach, he focuses on language, active listening and the body to start facilitating growth. In his book, LeadershipFlow Perfectly Square: Story About Learning to Lead and Transforming a Company, Croft details more of his methodology, plus how to let go of your ego and find vulnerability in order to be a great leader.
In this episode, he also gives insight on the importance of connecting with the body, and why practicing new skills in the body is the only way to build a better future for your company and train the next generation.
