Hacking Your Leadership Podcast

By Chris Stark and Lorenzo Flores

No role plays; just real. Chris & Lorenzo share four decades of combined experience to help you become a more effective leader. Keeping employees engaged and doing their best work today requires a leadership language focused on soft skills like empathy, emotional intelligence, and a desire to make personal connections. Many leaders want to succeed in this brave new world but employees continue to report poor engagement and they continue to leave companies about every three years. Listen and become a leader who people never want to leave.
