Paula Oliveira will be at the Leadership Summit on October 1st with yet another provocative and disruptive theme.

The status quo of crystallized leaderships in most companies in Portugal will be questioned. These are the leaderships preventing younger generations from being able to participate in decision making, take on more responsibilities and generate incremental and exponential innovation in organizations.

My experience as a Leader taught me that Leadership is about inspiring others to overcome their own potencial. To let them thrive, be successful, and celebrate with them that success. But leadership, is also about risking. Risking is crucial to inspire. It takes courage to be an audacious Leader, to allow people to try and fail before they reach victory. Let them experience and fail, to grow in that process. Just like oysters that grow Pearls. Are we Going, Growing and Thriving together?
