Episode 12

Discussion: Will Humility Get You Where You Want to Go?

Josh, Anthony, Anna-Maria, and Jake discuss Monday's interview with Blake Thompson, president at Mississippi College. The conversation includes how to understand what it means to find a compelling opportunity, whether or not humility is enough to get you to the top of an organization, and the balance between the character/competence/charisma equation that Dr. Thompson shared. There is also some discussion on how to care more about your organization than yourself in a healthy way as well as how to develop culture as a leader.

Josh Friedeman

Josh wants to help you LIVE and LEAD well.

From interviewing leaders and other experts who help leaders, to coaching leaders and entrepreneurs, to staying on the front lines of leadership research through his PhD work in organizational leadership, Josh likes to live and breathe all things leadership.

Sure, there's more to life than leadership - until, that is, you start seeing life AS leadership (*Freeze frame, roll credits*).
