DESCRIPTION

Being a leader today just isn’t the same as it used to be. Almost anyone in a leadership position today will tell you that it’s 110% harder. And why? The caliber of employees has changed.

We speak with Tim Elmore, Founder and CEO at Growing Leaders, Inc., about why the employees of today have higher expectations and how to arm yourself with the tools needed to maintain good team members. 

What we discussed:


  • Why leading today is harder than in the past
  • How to balance being a visionary & having a blind spot
  • How stubbornness & open-mindedness can both be leveraged by leaders
  • Setting high standards as a market leader & the golden gate paradox
