Ilkley Business Forum chairman Vera Woodhead will speak about leadership at the next meeting on November 13.
The meeting will take place at Ilkley Rugby Club, Denton Road, from 5.45pm to 7.45pm. Mrs Woodhead said: “Leadership is everywhere around us. It crosses boundaries at work, at home, at play and is embedded in our daily lives and makes us who we are. When you leave the office, you don’t leave your leadership behind. When you go on holiday, you don’t leave your leadership at home.
“It is a way of Being and Doing. Leadership needs to become more mainstream. The word leadership has connotations which seem beyond everyday reach, yet it exists in every aspect of our daily lives through our relationships with others, how we interact, how we communicate, our response to situations, our behaviours, actions.”
She would like to see leadership taught in schools.
“If we all became effective role models how different will our world be?” she said.
