    Greatness Podcast (Ep 77) | Jackie Insinger Discusses Leadership and Her Book Spark Brilliance

    Leadership is not just a work thing, it's a life thing. I'm fascinated by the science of positive psychology and how to leverage it as a leader. Jackie Insinger joined the Greatness Podcast to discuss her new book, Spark Brilliance, and her extensive research on the topic. Jackie discusses her framework of "platinum leadership", treating other people how THEY want to be treated. And I love this quote -  "brilliance is who you are and how you choose to show up".

    Greatness Podcast (Ep 76) | Kate Osborn Discusses Leadership and Koko Matrix

    What would you do with your life if you weren't afraid? A question I've often pondered. Kate Osborne joined the Greatness podcast to discuss her viewpoints on this, shaped by her travel to 36 countries after university and her experience of being mentored by one of the first major Coca-Cola shareholders. Her point - we're here for 4,000 weeks - what are we going to do with these weeks? How do you stretch yourself to the growth zone by traversing the fear zone? Critical thinking skills, the ability to create our own unique, original thoughts, are essential to this journey. Kate also shares her top three tips for great leadership.

    Greatness Podcast (Ep 75) | Sarah Treadway Discusses Leadership in the Hospitality and Construction Industries

    Few industries exhibited as much agility during the pandemic as the hospitality industry. As a fifth-generation hospitality/construction leader, Sarah Treadway, President/CEO of Stout Street Hospitality, joined the Greatness podcast to discuss how they kept every hotel open after dropping from 600 to 86 employees in March 2020 in an effort to take care of as many of their employees as possible. Sarah shares amazing insights on leadership and how her organization maintains a "family culture"; on her strategies for overcoming imposter syndrome as she balances her role as mom to four young children; and on how her company is investing in their greatest asset, their people, via strategies such as paying for the higher education of all dependents. Sarah traveled 5300 miles in a camper van to stay connected to her people throughout the pandemic. She is an outstanding leader, a fellow DU MBA, and a wonderful mother.

    Greatness Podcast (Ep 74) | Barb Jackson Discusses Transformation in the Construction Industry

    Few people are as focused upon transforming the leadership and culture of the construction industry as Barb Jackson (www.barbarajackson.com). Barb joined the Greatness podcast to share her observations on an industry that she describes as "full of noble, hardworking, well intended people" but that is at times "visionless", focusing upon management instead of leadership. Barb's Women Building Change Leadership Program, and her new podcast, Stirring Up Dust, are two excellent resources for those interested in leading transformation in our industry.
