Throughout history there are examples of good and bad leadership. Today is no different. The global pandemic has laid bare the quality of leaders around the world. Some are outstanding (New Zealand’s Jacinda Ardern comes to mind), many are mediocre, and a few are downright despicable (I’ll let you fill in the blank here).
But what about the future of leadership, then? Can we not learn from the past and present? Adam Mendler believes there is a way forward. It starts by being a truly great person, then you can become a truly great leader.
Adam has spent many hours talking with leaders from all walks of life. He’s gathered insights and made his own observations about what makes a leader great. The importance of character is not to be underestimated—sound character is required whether you’re leading a country, a Fortune 500 company, or the smallest of startups.
I had a chance to dig a little deeper into what Adam means when we spoke on this podcast episode. There’s a lot of change happening in the world right now. If you’re feeling unsure about what you can do to navigate this new world, think about your own leadership, and what you can do to make your character shine. Adam can help.
