Joshua Spodek Initiative: Bring Your Passions to Life (audio)
Leadership and the Environment
Is a conversation about climate change and the environment relevant to you and I as leaders… or is it just the flavour of the day?
Environmental issues are part of the everyday news cycle. But here’s the big question: If we think above and beyond either side of the discussion (and the environment being used a political catapult), are these issues relevant to us as leaders of industries? And if so, why are they relevant?
Well stay tuned because we are about to take a dive into this controversial subject.
Our guest on this episode is Joshua Spodek. He’s the bestselling author of Leadership Step by Step, and his resume is far beyond impressive!
Joshua is an Adjunct Professor at NYU, leadership coach and workshop leader for Columbia Business School, columnist for Inc., and founder of Spodek Academy.
He has led seminars in leadership, entrepreneurship, creativity, and sales at Harvard, Princeton, MIT, the New York Academy of Science, and in private corporations. He co-founded and led (as CEO or COO) several ventures, and holds six patents. He also holds five (5) Ivy League degrees, and he studied under a Nobel Laureate. He’s visited North Korea twice, swam across the Hudson River, and has even done burpees daily since 2011 -- 130,000 and counting.
Due to his commitment to being a leader, he takes 16 months to produce one load of garbage, and in the age of easy access he (by choice) hasn’t flown since March 2016.
He's the man Esquire’s Genius issue called “best and brightest”, and NBC said he’s an “astrophysicist turned new media whiz”. So let's welcome author of Initiative: Bring Your Passions to Life!, returning champion Joshua Spodek.
On this episode, we go FullMonty on:
- Why we need to focus on initiative rather than entrepreneurship
- Why leadership is NOT about telling people what to do, pushing legislation without popular support, or spreading facts, figures, doom, and gloom
- Why we must learn to lead AND practice initiative
- Using your lack of integrity to become an outstanding leader
- Why you being a genuinely happy leader is so important to loyalty
- Why it's all about the "little things"
And so much more...
