Is it the journey, or is it the destination? The role of a leader is getting to the destination (sales, profits, product development). Walt Rakowich believes the most important part of leadership is the journey and what happens along the way. Walt is the author of TRANSFLUENCE: How to Lead with Transformative Influence in Today’s Climates of Change. Walt and Kevin discuss transformative influence and Walt shares stories about his journey. There is a time and place for leaders to be vulnerable and acknowledge the details their team understands and works through daily. By overcoming fear and pride, we can empower our team and build trust. When leaders recognize they have a transformational influence on their team, they find opportunity, embrace challenges, and make their organizations and communities greater than ever.

In this episode, Walt shares stories about:

  1. Transfluence.
  2. Fear and Pride.
  3. The 3-H Core (Humility, Honesty and Heart).
  4. Hope in a crisis.
