You're here most likely because you are in a leadership position and wondering what to do now. I am here mostly because when I was in your position, most of the advice I got failed me in one way or another.
You might be wondering what the right approach or style is to lead your team, devouring content online in search of the magical framework we should all follow.
I am here to show you there isn't "one approach fits all" and to show you how to navigate the rights and wrongs of leadership - like I wish someone had shown me.
You might be looking for a systematic approach or a tool or a system that can help you lead your team successfully that isn't tied to any particular approach or leadership style.
I'm here to share that system with you.
It took me years to distill which steps really matter in leadership regardless of your preferred approach and style.
You will not find this system anywhere else.
At least, I haven't.
It's the product of my studying, learning, experimentation and experience.
All systematized in Navigating Leadership so you can lead your team successfully any time, anywhere.
Hi, this is me. My name's Carolina Fonseca.
In 2009 I was given a team and a project to lead for the first time.
Wanting to be a good leader to my team, I read up on the best practices at the time (back then Democratic Leadership was it!) and vowed to follow that approach throughout the whole thing.
So I did.
And it failed.
Not in all aspects, but in crucial ones: team spirit, decisions that had negative (financial) impact... things I could have avoided if I wasn't stuck trying to follow the best practices.
After that it took me a while to get my confidence back.
Fortunately I was surrounded by people who understood it was a learning curve and I was just at the beginning. They supported me and gave me more opportunities to lead other teams and projects.
Each one, a lesson learned.
Today I've lead over 10 different teams and consulted over 30 organizations and leaders.
Does this mean I think I know EVERYTHING about leadership?
No, not at all.
I think there's still a LOT for me to learn.
But colleagues and previous clients consistently told me how VALUABLE our work together was.
They saw first hand how simple strategies or aspects I pointed out had the results they were trying to achieve for MONTHS with their teams.
From small business owners to department heads in larger organizations and everywhere in between, what I teach is applicable anywhere, in any organization, anytime, to every leader, no matter how experienced or inexperienced you are, whether you're a masterful social creature or a shy introvert.
I've worked with people covering the whole spectrum.
The value is in the system I teach and it doesn't depend on your personal characteristics or the characteristics of your organization. What I teach can be adapted to suit you and your organization.
All leadership approaches are valuable at some point, but none is valuable all the time.
That's why I don't teach a leadership approach or philosophy but a system with steps to take regardless of the approach you decide to follow.
Looking forward to seeing the astonishing things you'll achieve with your team!
