The Highest Calling of Leadership

How much time and energy do you put into self-leadership?

I recently was interviewed on Agency Nation Radio by my longtime insurance friend Ryan Hanley.

Ryan and his team at Agency Nation has invited me to speak this June at Elevate 2017. In this podcast episode, I discuss why self-leadership is the missing ingredient to success for many independent agencies.

It’s easy to dismiss the idea of “Leadership” as an assumed quality of those in-charge. But as I discuss on this podcast, there is much more to leadership than simply rank in an organization.

While I work with organizations and professionals on leadership and communication, Ryan and I focused on the importance of “Self-Leadership” or taking control and leading your own life. As I explain, too many independent agents are allowing their success to be dictated to them by market forces, traditions and analog strategies.

Here are just a few of the questions that Ryan asked me on this interview: 

  • Why is positivity so important to successful leadership?
  • Do you have to be a “Visionary” like Steve Jobs to successfully lead an organization?
  • How does personal growth and self-leadership improve professional growth?
  • What impact does curiosity play in growing as a leader?
  • How can we be intentional about improving our leadership skills?

…and so much more.
