Jen Hope: Kindness and Connection: Your Secret Superpowers

Too many of us wind up in leadership positions by default – either because we had the most experience or because we started our own thing and needed to bring on support staff. But truly leading people goes a lot deeper than knowing all the steps and creating the perfect “to do” list. Join us for a fascinating breakdown of human behavior that’ll have you embracing your newfound leadership skillz.

Can’t-Miss Moments From This Episode:

  • Uncomfortable truth: sometimes being a leader means stepping out of the spotlight and letting your people shine. Here’s why you DON’T actually need to be the “brilliant idea person” all the time (and why putting that pressure on yourself could actually hurt your business)…
