Leading Is A Journey Of Mastery

Many people see leading as a role they undertake at work only.  Yet when we study the great leaders around us, it’s clear that leading is a journey of mastery underpinned by connection and clarity.

In this episode of the Business Chat Podcast, I share a conversation with Ashraf Dashlooty. He’s a consultant, coach, mentor, and master facilitator who’s been helping leaders with their journey to success. 

Ash shares the key underlying principles that drive people and key levers that craft a leadership journey. People are essentially driven by connection and their desire to seek clarity.

When leaders embrace and empower these principles, they motivate teams to do their best and uncover their genuine role and purpose.

Leadership is indeed a journey of mastery of the self and others. Great leaders never stop learning and developing themselves, so they continuously create the best impact on the people and community they serve and connect with.
