Good leaders take away the “me” factor. Yet, before you successfully lead, you need to know who you are. Minter Dial suggests we take the time (and it takes time) to recognize our strengths, weaknesses, fears, and triggers. When you have this information, you can supplement yourself. Minter’s latest book is You Lead, How Being Yourself Makes You A Better Leader. He suggests that you cannot control how you are perceived, but you can control your awareness. When you show your whole self at work, you encourage your team they can be themselves leading to more trust and success.
In this episode, Minter discusses:
- Authentic leadership.
- Bringing your “whole” self to work.
- Merging your professional and personal self.
Ask yourself: Do you take the time to reflect?

I’m glad that you mentioned that when you show your whole self at work, you encourage your team to be themselves leading to more trust and success. I’m struggling to find the small victories but remembering that minor steps of improvement make a difference. I will look for the best leadership development coach for further improvements. Thank you for the reminder!
