Description

As a leader, you don’t just lead and/or manage, you are a teacher. At least you should be, according to Dr. Thomas DeLong. Tom is the Baker Foundation Professor of Management Practice in the Organizational Behavior unit at Harvard Business School and author of Teaching By Heart – One Professor’s Journey to Inspire. He joins Kevin and reflects on his experiences in both academia and managing. In his opinion, the best teachers are aware of the needs of their students/their employees. If you define your success on your list and the tasks accomplished, others will always come second. Leaders need to be authentic and empathetic, as well as modeling the behavior they want to see. For example, don’t just talk about your culture. Listen and connect with your team to build the culture and create moments of transformation.

In this episode, Tom shares his thoughts about 1. Leading and teaching. 2. Perspective on future leaders. 3. The idea of connecting and re-connecting.
