The Character Based Leader – An Interview with Mike Henry, Sr.
Leadership is a topic that simply never gets old. It seems there’s always more to learn, and that which we learn we need to be reminded of.
I had the opportunity to read a terrific new book on this topic, coauthored by 21 authorities in the field of Leadership; all part of The Lead Change Group.
This is a nonprofit global community with a mission: to instigate — what they call — a leadership revolution that encourages, energizes and equips people to apply character-based leadership to lead change. They believe that while competence is extremely important, the KEY ingredient is character.
The founder of this organization is Mike Henry, Sr. In this discussion, he provides us with some excellent insight as to why this change is needed. We’ll also learn why – as a society – we generally don’t seem to trust our leaders. We’ll find out why true leadership is based much more on “who you are” rather than on your position, some of those key elements that shape character, and more.
Enjoy our chat!
I’m really looking forward to having Mike back on with us soon so that we can discuss the chapter he wrote entitled, “Respect: Bring Your Team to Life.” It was a magnificent chapter.
