As a leader, the conversations you have with the people around you will make or break your career. 



Having the wrong conversations with the wrong people is the fastest way to lose the trust of your coworkers. 



Conversely, having these 4 types of conversations with the people around you is the fastest way to building trust, creating an environment for growth, and establishing yourself as someone others are willing to follow. 



In this episode, I share four types of conversations you should be having with your people, and four types of conversations you should never engage in (or at least try to limit them). 



It’s hard sometimes. We’re all social creatures seeking participation and belonging with the “in” group but the irony is that pursuing those things is exactly what will keep us separated from our full potential.  



New leader’s are often left without support or an idea of how they can develop into their full potential. 



That’s why I created The Leader’s Workbook, a FREE resource for anyone who is, or wants to be, a leader in their agency and wants to learn how to expand their influence and contribution. You can get it here, absolutely free



Feeling angry, anxious, frustrated, confused or unmotivated? A lot of us are these days. Because of this, I created a FREE 7-day challenge journal to help you gain clarity on what you want, improve relationships with the people that matter to you, and recharge your energy. It’s called The Good Wolf Journal and it’s absolutely free. You can download it here.
