Whether you’re leading a business organization or a ready room, excellence in leadership leaves clues. There’s an unmistakable formula to becoming the kind of leader people would walk through fire with. It’s never about the title or the ego, it’s about cohesion and the willingness to sometimes take a follower role.
In this episode, I’m joined by my old friend and author of “Learn How to Lead to Win: 33 Powerful Stories and Leadership Lessons”, Mike Manazir. From flying F-14s to rising up to Two-Star Admiral, Mike has reached the pinnacle in every stage of his career, and today he shares powerful lessons from his journey.
An effective leader has to be willing to be a teammate, put the title aside and be a follower. -Mike Manazir
