Meet The Boss Monday: An Introduction and Invitation

At Weekly Leader we believe that one of the most effective ways of learning about and developing your leadership is to “experience” the stories of others. That’s one of the main reasons we created the popular Weekly Leader podcast (itunes).

Today I’m very excited to tell you about a new partnership we’ve launched with MeetTheBoss.TV.

Weekly Leader readers and podcast listeners can access great leadership learning video content free of charge from MeetTheBoss.TV by simply registering using the Weekly Leader link. Go ahead, there’s no cost or risk to you and the content is first rate! Listen, watch and learn from some of the world’s top business leaders as they share their stories about their successes and failures along their own leadership journeys.

To get you started, here’s the first episode of MeetTheBoss wherein Adam Burns introduces us to a number of leaders who share their experiences and thoughts on the topic of leadership.

Leadership Lessons Learned:

  1. Ability to build consensus and to develop and mobilize people around a shared vision;
  2. A demonstrable enthusiasm for the role;
  3. Social boldness and self-assurance. Leaders learn from their mistakes but are not dissuaded by them;
  4. A firm understanding of team. Personal power and recognition is second to the development of employees;
  5. Empathy. Without empathy you can not build trust. And without trust you will never get the best out of your employees.

We hope that you enjoy and learn from the great MeetTheBoss.TV’s series of videos as much as we do and that you’ll sign up for free full content versions using our link and promo code WKLR01.

As President John F. Kennedy wrote in a speech he prepared to deliver on the day he was assassinated, “Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.” MeetTheBoss.TV videos are another great resource to keep in your leadership learning toolbox.
