On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I invite guests to share personal stories about small acts of leadership that help shape their lives.

In Episode 18, Jane Bozarth encourages us to seriously consider opportunities, shares a leadership story about saying the right thing at the right time, and explains what being a practitioner means.

As the Director of Research for The Learning Guild, Jane shares evidence-based research related to talent development.

In a previous episode, Judy Hale encourages us to watch for opportunities that may not be obvious. Likewise, Jane shares an insightful quotation about opportunities that is worth knowing.

00:00 Part 2: Calmness Can be Enlightening

As we act, we model what it means to lead and to be in management. We do so with our words, our appearance, our nonverbal gestures, and our emotions. Jane shares a story about how her manager responded to a project meltdown.

Jane heartens us to be reflective with our work and intellectualize their practices. Also, she encourages us to think of ourselves as practitioners and explains what being a practitioner means.
