What makes a leader worth* following? That little asterisk next to “worth” is the answer. It references the hidden truth that lives at the very core of effective (and ineffective) leadership. The Be Worth* Following Podcast explores this surprising truth and how it plays out in the lives of real leaders. Be Worth* Following is an original show from the People Forward Network, and it invites you to rethink what you think about leadership. Join host Tim Spiker, author of The Only Leaders Worth* Following, as he talks to leaders, thinkers, and researchers about what actually drives leadership across the globe and over time.
In this episode, Greg shares how he falls back on them to overcome challenges. He starts by casting a vision that includes how each employee contributes to its success. Then he intentionally recognizes employees as they work toward shared goals. In times of difficulty, it’s practices like these that offer hope to those who need it. Listen in to learn how Greg provides inspiration and support and hear the story of a leader who did the same for him.
