What does it mean to truly have the character of a leader? Is culture really something we can influence in an organization?
Watch our conversation on YouTube!
We all have that experience wherein we’ve been on the receiving end of connecting with someone who didn’t really value the conversation that we’re having. That’s the most devaluing feeling, just as our guest today says.
So join us in this episode as he shares what he’s learned upon writing a book about culture, on why being present is important for a remarkable leader, and how he lives his life as a charismatic introvert.
Shane Hatton is an author, trainer, coach, and speaker who is passionate about developing remarkable leaders and cultures. He works with organizations to close the leadership gap between mid and senior level leaders.
Aside from being the author of the books “Let’s Talk Culture – The Conversations You Need to Create the Team You Want” and “Lead The Room – Communicate a Message That Counts in Moments That Matter”, Shane is also a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach, a member of the Forbes Global Coaches Council, and is the Founder of the People Leaders Network.
I met Shane on the Clubhouse app, where we had various conversations around various topics, but it was when I attended his book launch earlier this year in Sydney that we finally got to meet in real life.
