On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I invite guests to share personal stories about small acts of leadership that help shape their lives.
In Episode Ten, Dave Best talks about ways to connect with one another, what it means to encourage growth, and urges us to practice being genuine.
00:18 Prologue: Givers Put Others First
I’ve known Dave for about ten years. We met at Lowe’s. Since then, Dave has worked at Wal-Mart and now is a senior manager at The Home Depot. To learn more about Dave, you can view his LinkedIn profile (link below).
01:26 Part 1: Connect with Others
Core to leadership is how we interact with people at different levels. Dave shares a story about Mike Abrashoff, a leadership author, that illustrates the challenge of connecting with others.
06:43 Part 2: Encourage Growth
Leadership is not about you, but it is about other people. Practicing leadership is about helping others develop their mental and moral qualities, capabilities, and behaviors. In other words, leading people involves building character.
21:08 Part 3: The Real Deal
One of the themes of these episodes is being genuine. Dave discusses what this means and how crucial being genuine is when leading.
