Bobby says that the gift of leadership is misused when it doesn’t demonstrate appreciation. Today’s guest on True North Leader, Holly Tate, capitalizes on this idea. She says while a good leader drives outcomes and holds people accountable, they also demonstrate care, drive development, and celebrate wins. Holly is the SVP of Growth at Leadr, a people development software company. Yes, “Leadr” is spelled right! Tune in to learn why you have to develop leaders and not just doers when trying to achieve scale. Learn why the more direct reports you have, the less effective you are. Also learn why organizations that don’t adapt and pivot will lose their best people. Hold on tight!
