As an Actuary, Author, Keynote Speaker and Leadership Coach, Daphna Horowitz holds qualifications in business, leadership and coaching. She works closely with leaders and teams to transform workplace culture by developing strategic processes, leading change initiatives and enabling purpose-driven leadership effectiveness and impact.

After establishing a successful career as one of the world’s few women actuaries, Daphna felt the tug to go beyond her strength in mathematics and explore the meaningful world of human behavior and leadership development. In our conversation today, she shares the process of discovery she went through in identifying her true calling and the 3 core keys to becoming an extraordinary leader.

Originally from South Africa, Daphna now resides in Israel. She has a solid track record coaching CEOs and facilitating leadership development programs across the globe in the following industries: financial services, business schools, IT, FMCG and consulting. Recent assignments across Europe, Africa, Middle East and India include the following clients: Barclays Bank, Coca-Cola, Medtronic, Hollard Insurance, Rand Merchant Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, Anglo American, Siemens, University of Stellenbosch and GIBS Business School.

According to Daphna, leadership is an inside job – one that permeates every area of your life. As an example of this, she challenged herself to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and wrote a book about her experience called Courage To Lead. Her goal with the book is to make leadership accessible to everyone because in her view, everyone is capable of being a leader.

Listen is as we dive into this topic of leadership with Daphna and explore unique distinctions designed to equip and empower you to be an extraordinary leader that transforms cultures and empowers others to become leaders in their lives.

Key Takeaways

  1. Your strength isn’t necessarily your area of passion.
  2. Being an expert doesn’t automatically grant you leadership qualities.
  3. Leadership is an all-in job. You can’t be half a leader in your life, leading in some areas and not being a leader in others. It’s something that comes from inside.
  4. Leadership is messy. Not everything is going to have an easy, neat solution. Sometimes you have to hold the chaos and know how to navigate that with the people you work with.
  5. Leadership is about service. When you are leading people, you are actually in service to them.
  6. Showing up as a leader includes showing your strengths as well as having the vulnerability to show what you’re not good at.
  7. Women often leak power and hold themselves back, whereas men throw their power around in an attempt to look and feel powerful. Both stem from an insecurity, uncertainty and vulnerability about where we stand in our environment. Power is an inside journey.
