When you hear the word leader, what comes to mind? Perhaps the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, or the General of a big army?
That used to be my visual until I realized every one of us are leaders in a variety of ways throughout our day to day lives.

Leadership is a skill that can (and should) be learned by you, no matter where you apply it your life.
My guest today is a smart man. It’s Ron Carucci. He and his company is your first phone call when you’re a CEO and senior executive of a big corporation and things aren’t going as planned.
It’s no secret that not all “leadership” is created equal. Ron and his consulting firm led a ten-year study which included over 2700 leadership interviews to help fully understand the big and small pictures.

Leadership comes in all shapes and sizes and appears in many different places in our lives, in and out of the office.
Ron’s personal life, like most everyone’s, isn’t without early heartache and loss, but the way he got himself through it over the years is inspiring.
I’m sure you’ll hang on Ron’s every word like I did. Here we go…
