    279. AMMA — Building Trust Through Authentic Leadership

    Are you leading your law firm or just playing pretend?

    In this unmissable episode of The Game Changing Attorney Podcast, Michael Mogill dives deep into the raw, unfiltered truths about authentic leadership. 

    If you're hiding behind a facade of professionalism while your firm crumbles, you're not just failing your team — you're failing yourself.

    Michael doesn't pull any punches as he tackles the tough questions: 

    Can you be authentic without losing respect?

    How do you balance vulnerability with authority?

    Are your actions truly reflecting the standards you preach?


    Drawing from his own experiences and hard-hitting examples, Michael reveals why showing up as your true self is non-negotiable for building trust and respect. He exposes the dangers of a "do as I say, not as I do" mentality and challenges you to lead by example — because your team is always watching.
