WoW On the Daily Leader podcast: On leading from virtue and wisdom

Listen to every Words of Wisdom ever recorded.



This week's Words of Wisdom is a bit different. I had the privilege of being interviewed by some friends on their podcast called the Daily Leader. The episode is called Leading From Virtue and Wisdom. Brad McDonald and Taylor Jessup sat down with me to discuss what contributes to a great leader holistically, the effects of virtue and vice in everyday leadership, as well as what it looks like practically to seek and embrace wisdom.
