HIle Rutledge - Self-Awareness & Empathy
On this week's episode, Hile and I tackle two of the foundational elements of emotional intelligence (EQ): emotional self-awareness and empathy.

We explore how leaders high in these skills can manage themselves and others in more effective ways. And, we discuss a handful of tips and tricks to help you build your emotional self-awareness and empathy.

Hile Rutledge - The Post
This week, Hile and I talk about one of the best CEOs of the last 40 years, Katharine Graham. We use the 2017 movie "The Post" as a backdrop where Graham (played by Meryl Streep) wrestles with the complexities of taking a company public, testing the first amendment and proving she can lead with a Board that initially sees her as incapable. We talk about her growth as a leader, her courage, how her values came into play and how she processed an agonizing decision.
Episode 77 - Leslie Ehm - Swagger
It is probably fair to say that at one point in time or another, we have all contemplated some of the following questions: Who am I? What is my purpose? What do I want to be when I grow up?
After years of working with professionals across the globe, Leslie Ehm, stumbled on a number of principles that she believes can help answer these questions. In this week's show, we talk about her new book, "Swagger - Unleash Everything You Are and Become Everything You Want." We talk about how her book is different from most self-help writing, why people feel the need to hide their true selves, why finding your Swagger is NOT arrogant, some of the common Swagger blockers and how finding your truth actually serves the greater good.
Such a treat!
Thank you for having me on Looking for And! Doug is a brilliant, curious, and committed host sparking important conversations and perspectives.
Love these podcasts. Doug is a terrific interviewer and always learning from this. Keep it up!
Great Episode on The Connection Culture
As someone focused on the impact connection has on creating vibrant relationships, Doug did a great job speaking with Mike and Katie Stallard to draw this out. He was able to uncover how their personal experiences with connection and lack of connection had a positive and/or negative impact on their lives. I will remember and apply Vison, Value and Voice. Looking forward to future episodes.
