A Leader’s Character Trumps Skills – Podcast Episode 1
I am thrilled to announce the launch of our latest way to promote the Human-Side of Business philosophy that we advocate here at ExchangeGain – the Work That Matters Podcast. To launch the podcast, we will be bringing you three interviews a week up to Thanksgiving. Then we’ll settle in to a twice weekly release schedule.
It’s a bold statement Mark Miller makes in his new book, The Heart of Leadership, that a leader’s character trumps his or her skills. The point is made keeping in mind the genesis of our leadership: belief about people and our purpose as a leader.
In this interview, Mark and I explore his proclamation of character over skills, beliefs about people, and a leader’s purpose. In a summary statement, Mark believes leaders add value through serving people.
Mark has a charisma that comes through in this interview. You will be inspired to evaluate your own leadership against some of the leadership calls to action Mark poses.
To help me get the word out about the podcast, please head over to iTunes and give the show a five star rating and leave a comment. Your generosity will help us get noticed and land on the front page of all podcasts on iTunes!
