Prodigy Breakfast Series: Dynamic Leadership Session

Prodigy Breakfast Series: Dynamic
Leadership Session 

At Prodigy Finance’s London office, a four-part breakfast series is underway. These events cover four vital steps to post-MBA career success. The first breakfast (and, yes, there was breakfast) on 8 February, covered Dynamic leadership: How does your personality affect leadership style?

Suesal Arieli, the founder of Arieli & Company, presented incredible insights garnered through experience. The international career intelligence and strategy firm provides insights on career path choices, fast-tracking careers, making career transitions, tackling difficult professional situations, and awareness of leadership traits that increase effectiveness and reach in formal and informal management roles.

Before the event, each participant completed a psychological survey to receive personal insights and guidance during the session. The results highlighted psychological types, strengths and potential weaknesses, and preferred work and communication style in terms of a four-tier preference stack.

Ms. Arieli walked us through the background, science, hypothesis and basic information required to analyse the report. Through an incredible discussion regarding preferred orientations towards values and motivations, everyone was able to dive deeper into their plans.

I was pleasantly surprised and thrilled to discover my psychological type is in-line with the skills required for my post-MBA job choices. In such a short space of time, we were also able to learn about the leadership traits of others – and that characteristics don’t operate in isolation. Everyone, through inherent abilities can be supportive, embrace differences, and operate in industries requiring adaptive and dynamic roles.

Very excitingly, we were shown how stress operates based on preferred work style, individual job satisfiers, and given different ways to adapt to situations by awareness of personal psychological profile.

As a takeaway, we were tasked with introspective consideration of the type of leader we aspire to be. With such an inspiring presentation, it’s easier to reflect on the type of leader that will work best in my industry and developing shadow capacity and hidden strengths.

There are three more sessions in this breakfast series:

  • Work Authorisations: Navigating the work field
  • Building the best Resume for the job
  • Interview training
