#WorkTrends Recap: Leadership Lessons from Superheroes

During today’s #WorkTrends show, we discussed leadership lessons we can learn from superheroes. #WorkTrends Founder and Host Meghan M. Biro was joined by David Kahn, leadership expert and author of “Cape, Spandex, Briefcase: Leadership Lessons from Superheroes.”

We discussed the superpowers of leaders, briefly touching on the powers of:

  • Accountability
  • Conviction
  • Persuasion
  • Collaboration

and how each plays a role in inspiring and motivating employees, as well as how a focus on developing your own superpowers can be the path to nailing it in the leadership department.

We also spent some time discussing talent management and the following key topics:

  • The ingredients of an effective leader
  • How superheroes can make you a better leader
  • The use of pop culture to enhance talent management initiatives

It was a lively #WorkTrends podcast and Twitter conversation and this is clearly a topic upon which David Kahn is well-versed. Twitter chat participants also had a lot of insights to share on this topic, making for another quick-moving, lively, and extremely interesting #WorkTrends show.
