The Leadership Moments Podcast

I talk to successful people and ask them three simple questions:

  • Who in your early career had the biggest influence on your approach to leadership
  • What was your 'aha' moment – the moment you got it, and understood what leadership was all about?
  • What was your biggest failure and what did you learn that still informs your leadership today?
