Description

When it comes to unorthodox leadership wisdom, look no further than my guest today, Michelle Reines

 Michelle Reines is a speaker, author of the book From Bad To Badass Leader: 12 Leadership Lessons, executive coach, entrepreneur, founder of MDR Coaching & Counseling, Inc, and creator of the unconventional Badass Leader Brand. 

 Early in Michelle’s leadership journey, she was an absolute Ass as a boss, oblivious to the impact she was having on people! Perhaps, like many of you, she didn’t understand how to lead.  

 Today’s episode is full of Michelle’s thrills of victories and agonies of defeat, with the goal of helping you to unlock the art of leading like a Badass!  

 

Michelle Reines 12 Leadership Lessons: 

Lesson 1. Don’t Be An Ass 

Lesson 2. Stop, Drop, Take a Selfie 

Lesson 3. Let’s Talk About Trust, Baby 

Lesson 4. Put Your People First 

Lesson 5. Be An Epic Coach 

Lesson 6. Build A Badass Team 

Lesson 7. Create The Struggle 

Lesson 8. Suck It Up, Buttercup 

Lesson 9. Don’t Be A Kissass 

Lesson 10. Be A Groupie For Your Team 

Lesson 11. Expand Your Tribe
