Behaviors that Sabotage Leadership and How to Move Toward Mastering Leadership

About the Episode

Dana Allin and Daniel Allen discuss experiences with leaders and coaching that have supported lasting pathways for growth and change. They dive into different leadership tendencies based on our internal wiring of complying, controlling, and or protecting. Daniel gives examples of each leadership style and the two discuss some strategies for how we, as leaders, can work to move past these pitfalls to be at our best.
