The Leadership Diet

By Pod OSullivan

Effective leaders will always outperform ineffective leaders over time! Hi, I am Pod OSullivan. For over twenty years I have coached, mentored and supported corporate leaders and leadership teams all over the world to become impactful, effective and high performing. This is a podcast that taps into that experience. It is recorded for and about senior business leaders, C suite leaders, Founders and CEO's.  I interview leaders and experts about ways to optimise leadership. What are the useful habits and thinking patterns? What are the secrets to high performing teams? How do they continue to nurture their effectiveness day after day? In other words, what is their leadership diet? https://theleadershipdiet.com
