My guest today is Nick Anderson, advisor, mentor, and author of “Six-Word Lessons For Middle Managers”. In our conversation we discuss how Nick has drawn upon his experience in the banking industry coupled with how he’s overcome personal tragedy to mentor others through his company Chosen Leader. We dive into the meaning of Chosen Leader and the idea that leaders are not born or built.  

Please enjoy my conversation with Nick Anderson.
