Chat Highlights

  1. What have you learned about the value of authenticity in your leadership career?
  2. Why does the word “recruiter” often come with a negative connotation and what do good Talentpreneurs (as you call your team members) do differently that dispels preconceived notions for someone considering a working relationship with them?
  3. Why is empowering your team members important to them and to fulfilling your responsibilities as a leader?
  4. You have self-proclaimed yourself as someone who has often set unrealistic goals for yourself beyond the scope of reality. What have you learned to be the downfalls of this trait as well as the areas of opportunity to coach your team members on how to be a top performer?
