91: Follow Your Lead

Effective leaders are reflective in how the way they lead affects others. If you wouldn’t follow you, what makes you think others will? Tune in to hear how to self evaluate your leadership and make changes today that will have a positive impact tomorrow!


  • I love leaders who have high expectations but sympathize
  • I respect leaders who might not have done it before but are willing to roll up their sleeves, jump into the trenches with you and make it happen
  • Whatever you ask of others be willing to do yourself
  • Know what its like to be lead by yourself
  • I cannot achieve my goals, if those I lead aren’t behind me
