Season #2: Session 3
What does it mean to be a gracious leader?
In this episode, you’ll be able to listen to gracious leadership in action as Dr. Marshall Goldsmith helps me out with a bad habit.
noun: a settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up.
synonyms: custom, practice, routine, wont, pattern, convention, way, norm
Also discussed on today’s episode:
- Who were Marshall Goldsmith’s mentors?
- Why is courage such an important characteristic for leaders?
- How do you respond to employees who disagree with your decisions?
- What do top CEOs and professional athletes have in common?
In this bonus audio clip, Marshall recommends 5 books that every manager should pick up.
He also gives me some constructive advice, which I’ve chosen to share with you in the spirit of being authentic and vulnerable.
I hope it’s helpful to you as well and gives you a few things to think about in your own communication.
Additionally, I think this audio clip demonstrates Marshall’s genuine desire to help people.
