‘Madam Secretary’ Demos Warm Authority

‘Warm Authority’ is a dynamic combination for modern positive leadership.

Leaders who can do this are authentic, human, flexible and clearly in charge.  You may like them but you certainly wouldn’t mess with them.

My favourite example right now is in Sky Living TV show ‘Madam Secretary’.  Téa Leoni stars as Elizabeth McCord, the shrewd, determined, newly appointed Secretary of State, former CIA operative.

Watch a clip from the show, ‘not big on protocol’ here.

Male or female, it’s worth watching the show to see how she handles conflict, how she moves from calm to passion, her humour and physical presence.  Sky Living Thursday nights, 9pm in the UK.

If you would like to find your own style of warm authority, you can develop this skill on The Advanced Leadership Communications Programme. Contact us to find out more.
