Are you a Maverick leader?

  • What would your younger self say about how you are leading today?
  • Did you lose your Maverick spirit along the way up the corporate ladder?
  • How do you get it back?
  • Why does it matter?

These crucial questions form the basis of a powerful keynote based on the book Mavericks: how bold leadership changes the world, co-authored by TomorrowToday’s Associate Tamryn Batcheller Adams, with David Lewis and Jules Goddard (London Business School).

The keynote unpacks the four key characteristics that Maverick leaders operate from.

A Maverick mindset is a combination of:

  • Resourcefulness,
  • Experimentation,
  • the ability to remain Undeterred,
  • and the willingness to be Nonconformist.

These four traits, which rest on a foundation of personal belief that one can make a difference – serve as a toolkit to re-engaging your own inner Maverick, something we believe to be possible at any stage of life or position in your career.

Maverick leadership is a framework that can be applied at a personal, team or organizational level – if you are serious about leading differently tomorrow then this is the model to take seriously today.
