On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I invite guests to share personal stories about small acts of leadership that help shape their lives.
Andy Hibel helps me launch the first episode by explaining his personal growth perspective, recognizing opportunities to lead, and how leadership is practiced.
Andy encouraged me to start the podcast, and I think it’s appropriate that he is part of the first show. We met at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign before shifting his career from being a planned giving officer to an entrepreneur. Andy co-founded HigherEdJobs.com and is the company’s Chief Operating Officer. While he lives and works in the Chicago area and I work near Charlotte, I consider Andy a close friend.
02:17 Part 1: Choosing Your Attitude about Development
Whether grown organically or shaped deliberately, we all have a set of attitudes about personal and professional development. Andy shares something that helped shape his attitude about personal change.
09:26 Part 2: Opportunity to Lead
Leading mostly happens in small acts, but occasionally, we find substantial opportunities to lead. Andy tells a story about taking donors to the Holocaust Museum
19:17 Part 3: Leading with Action
Andy discusses his perspective of what’s considered to be leadership. Leading with our words is a leadership element, but speaking alone is insufficient, or at least, isn’t the most common part of leadership.
