Characteristics of a True Leader

This podcast is a must listen! Ron does a great job at explaining and promoting characteristics of a true natural leader that sparks a lot of internal reflection on our own actions, reactions, and interactions. He doesn’t tell you what you need to do in order to be a leader, but rather sheds light on what makes a true, natural leader in any situation or role, to the point of saying that you don’t need a leadership title to be a leader. This is one of the only podcasts that I recommend that you listen to periodically because we always need gentle reminders to self-check ourselves to make sure we are being the leader we want to be as the generations, the social climate, and our teams/relationships are continuously changing and we, as leaders, need to continuously adapt.

Great insight!

I really enjoyed this podcast and appreciated the insight on how we can take what we have learned about ourselves during this pandemic to refocus and refine our “why.”
