Acclaimed leader and author, Ben Beckhart is the guest on this episode of the podcast. Ben discusses some of the attributes of leading with character and provides some great examples from his many years in leadership roles. Ben has explored the idea of leading with character deeply and wrote a book about it for those who want to learn even more of these principles. Ben declares that the challenges we are seeing in “The Great Resignation” is a void in leadership and invites us to think more about how we can use this opportunity to step up and fill this void. To be a good leader, people need to be courageous and curious, so we discuss how those two attributes can be fostered in us and in the people around us in a way that allows them to feed on one another in a positive way.
