“Your leadership story is your life story,” according to Doug Conant, globally renowned business leader, bestselling author, and today’s guest. If you find yourself struggling to settle into your own personal leadership style, the key is to look inward – a method Doug developed and has shared the blueprints to. Doug’s experience proves that once you understand your purpose upfront, leading through a crisis like the current pandemic becomes much easier.
