Sonia McDonald

CEO and Founder, LeadershipHQ

KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: Leadership is an Attitude

Sonia calls herself the ‘Accidental Entrepreneur’ because her journey to leadership was one that she never expected to take. With an extensive career in Human Resources and Training, she experienced an unexpected turn of events when she was left a solo mother in a foreign country. Determined to make a life for herself and her daughter with little money, she started working in Leadership Development and Consulting.

She then founded a company called LeadershipHQ as a way to help others discover and harness their own leadership capabilities. Today, she spends her time consulting, coaching and speaking around Australia about Leadership, Neuroscience and how to build great organisations and teams.

As an author on 3 books on leadership, she is an authority in her field and is helping to shape current and future leaders.

Session Overview

Leadership is not a role or title. It is how you think, feel and see yourself and how you act as a leader. Leadership is an attitude. If your attitude says that you are a leader then you will behave like a leader. It’s as simple as that. To be a leader and create a unique leadership style, leaders need to focus on their strengths. That’s what sets them apart from others, and the ROI on improving strengths is far greater than overcoming weaknesses.

Sonia says, don’t be afraid to change. Your strengths define your leadership style. Develop a leadership attitude because at any time now might be you who’s needed to lead the way ahead. Sonia has worked with leaders from all walks of life and understands better than anyone that owning the role of leader is extremely important. As a true leader, the greatest gift you can give yourself and others is simply being yourself.

Sonia shows how to develop a leadership attitude which reflects the real person.

That’s the power of this presentation
