THE FUN AND CURIOUS WARRIOR 

When you think of a good leader, what do you think of? A good leader is someone who really knows the people that are following them. The people who follow them also know all about the leader. There needs to be a strong level of empathy. People need that emotional connection, and to feel invested. If you throw your power around, you’re only going to get compliance – not motivation. Nothing gets done efficiently with compliance.

Everyone has dreams and passions. You need to make sure you know what your follower’s are, and make sure that they know yours. When that happens they will become emotionally invested. They will want to help, they will be willing to go above and beyond to help you achieve your goals.

There are ways you can practice becoming a great leader. Just like a concert pianist practices their skills, and a pro tennis player practices their forehand drills, there are fundamental practices for Leadership. On this episode we are joined by Joshua Spodek, who has been shaking up the world of leadership.

Joshua has studied not only what truly makes the best leader, but more importantly what makes the best followers. He’s developed leadership training skills you can, and should, practice daily if you want to be the best possible leader. His recent discoveries have been progressing the business and creative entrepreneurial world faster than we’ve ever seen.
