    #45 Say Thank You For Everything

    #45 Say Thank You For Everything

    To disabuse you of what might be your first reaction: this is interview is not about gratitude — although that’s part of one of the lessons.
    Jim Edwards sent out an email years ago with 19 bits of advice for a colleague who was taking a leadership position. Little did he realize that the email would not only be a set of timeless principles for any manager, but that he would add more to it — including many true, harrowing, and funny anecdotes — enough to warrant an entire book.
    Jim joins Timeless Leadership to discuss many of these stories, as well as tactics and strategies to help you become a more effective leader, no matter what level of management you’re in.
    You’ll especially want to hear the story about his worst job that led to him discovering the three most important things about leadership.

    #44 Innovators Who Changed the World

    #44 Innovators Who Changed the World

    The world is a by-product of innovation. We know the names of famous innovators — people like Albert Einstein, Sir Isaac Newton, and Socrates — for every one of them, there have been thousands of anonymous innovators.
    But there are common themes we can find in the stories of innovators and Dr. Jim Webb takes us through some of those stories in his new book Innovators Who Changed the World: Timeless Leadership Lessons from West Point, Green Berets, Sherlock Holmes, and Wall Street.
    Jim joins us to talk about the leadership lessons he draws from these, plus others in his book that include such a variety of topics and personalities as judo, the Army Rangers, J.P. Morgan, Manchester United, and more.

    #43 Trust and Inspire

    #43 Trust and Inspire

    The world has changed. Unfortunately, leadership styles haven’t changed with it. The old “Command & Control” leadership approach is no longer tenable in an era with a hybrid workforce.
    Stephen M.R. Covey, a noted authority on trust and inspiration, helps 21st century leaders grasp this new reality in his book Trust & Inspire: How Truly Great Leaders Unleash Greatness in Others.
    In our interview for Timeless Leadership, we explore this shift, looking at the three stewardships of modeling, trusting, and inspiring against a backdrop of uncertainty and urgency — challenges all leaders face today.

    #42 Lead From the Heart

    We hear a lot about soft skills for leaders these days. But Mark Crowley has been beating this drum for over a decade.
    His 2011 book Lead From the Heart: Transformational Leadership for the 21st Century has been updated for 2022, and the timing is perfect. With so many challenges the modern leader has to face, from the pandemic to remote work and more, Mark’s book offers the perfect solution.
    The conversation with Mark covers the life-threatening inspiration for his work, looks at why job satisfaction is down globally, and provides leaders with four practices of leading from the heart that will guarantee a kinder, more compassionate, and dedicated workforce.

    #41 The Everyday Patriot

    #41 The Everyday Patriot

    What does patriotism have to do with leadership?
    Everything, it turns out. And practical philosopher Tom Morris is back to share his latest book, a timely volume that contains the secret to what we need right now.
    More than the rah-rah of nationalistic jingoism, patriotism at its core is about collective responsibility. And we all have a responsibility to lead in this regard.
