Episode 6: The Fearless Organization

Leadership is harnessing the efforts of others to achieve greatness. How do you inspire and engage others to help reach your leadership potential?

“Thoughtful executives realize that their desire to create value can only occur through people. That there is no magic wand where I see some value that we can create in the market and I am just going to wave that wand and it is going to happen. No, it is going to happen through people.” -Amy C. Edmondson
