The traditional definition of leadership can actually be a doing a disservice to you and your company’s growth. Leadership isn’t just about guiding people and projects. Leadership is about staying committed to your mission when things get rocky. Leadership is about championing positive change and inspiring others. Leadership is about showing up wholly as yourself and taking initiative.  

In this episode, I debunk the traditional definition of leadership and redefine it to show you that leadership isn’t only limited to your job title. It’s not about what you do, but who you are. Listen to this episode and see if you’re ready to step into your best leadership self. You may already be there!
