In this engaging episode of Lessons in Leadership, I was interviewed by host Shiyen Shu on the core principle of leadership: “Build your people to build your business.” We emphasized that a business’s success relies on the strength and growth of its people. However, many leaders tend to overlook this truth, becoming overly focused on external aspects and neglecting the crucial role their employees play in driving growth and achieving success.
This podcast covers so much, including:
- The significance of a leader’s brand – the way others perceive, think, and feel about that leader – and how that serves as a bedrock for success.
- How Executive Presence and effective leadership are products of an “inside-out journey.” Learn more about how leaders can conquer inner challenges, insecurities, and limiting beliefs, allowing the external dynamics to shift to a more positive space.
- Compelling anecdotes and fascinating real-life case studies/examples from successful leaders who have demonstrated the power of investing in their people and cultivating a strong personal brand.
Listen in for actionable takeaways to implement in your own leadership journey. Remember: building an exceptional business requires more than just financial acumen and strategic planning—it requires unwavering commitment to developing and empowering the people behind an organization’s success.
