This week I am delighted to not bring you just one guest this week, but two!
I am joined by John Baird and Edward Sullivan to discuss their new book Leading with Heart: 5 Conversations that Unlock Creativity, Purpose, and Results.
This episode feels like a couple of friends having a conversation over coffee. We chat about the idea of the “lights on, lights off experiment”, how fear and Maslow’s hierarchy of needs play a part in why they constructed the book the way they did, and we go over how to read it!
