Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Dr. John P. Fernandez discuss the following:
- You say that recent books on leadership have failed to address a few key issues. Why have they fallen short to adequately address the challenges facing today’s leaders?
- Humans naturally have implicit and explicit biases and stereotypes. What are some strategies for minimizing them and what in particular do leaders needs to be aware of when confronting biases?
- What can leaders do to identify their own strengths and weaknesses and how does that benefit the entire organization?
- Do we expect too much from our leaders? Where are some areas where they are naturally inclined to come up short?
- What are the new models of leadership you advocate for in the book? What are some of the crucial leadership skills that leaders of all businesses (big or small) need to grow?
