The Power of Exercising Emotions in Leadership

Update: 2020-06-29


Recently, I was interview on Cathleen Merkels's Legendary Podcast.

Do you believe that emotions influence your business decisions? Do you need to show people your vulnerability so they can show you theirs? I spent most of my younger years being selfish but had an eye-opening conversation with my wife that changed my life completely.

I believe that you have to be emotionally connected with people for them to feel free to open up and collaborate with you. Listen in to learn the impact you can make with your team by exercising leadership rather than being a boss.

Key Takeaways:

  • How to stop being selfish and learn to give back to the world.
  • How to be sold out to people while still being yourself.
  • The skills of leveraging the power of emotions.
  • The process of successfully identifying and transforming your company culture.
