He talks about some of the key traits for leaders to explore new ideas and to dive into helping their members grow as people.

He talks about The Five Practices of leadership, which are:

  1. Challenging the process
  2. Inspiring a shared vision
  3. Enabling others to act
  4. Modeling the way
  5. Encouraging the heart

And he answers questions such as:

  • What is the one thing you have done this week to make you better than last week?
  • What are some of your productivity tricks?
  • What advice would you give a CEO of a startup company?
