UST Education Series: CEO Joanna Pineda Presenting on Leadership Lessons from Martial Arts
The martial arts teach discipline, respect and technique. What can they teach us about leadership? Quite a lot.
Matrix Group CEO & Chief Troublemaker Joanna Pineda is excited to present a session on “Leadership Lessons from Martial Arts” in UST Education’s Leadership and Learning Series happening Wednesday, June 14th at 2pm Eastern.
In this session, Joanna will share five leadership lessons that she’s learned from studying two martial arts (TaeKwonDo and HapKiDo): When it’s important to trade your black belt for a white belt. How to take a punch. How to lead and how to follow. Always define the next level of achievement (the next belt). Sometimes, you just have to “do something.”
Attendees will learn:
- Why it’s useful to think of your staff as students with different degrees of skill levels (belts).
- How to have a conversation with a staff member who needs to switch jobs or seriously upgrade their skills (change to a new martial art).
- To teach your staff that they can be and should be leaders and followers at the same time.
