Angus talks about how today’s leadership is based around extroverted elements. Leaders focus on charisma, how well you perform in front of others, how well you speak in front of others, how well you network.
In the past, there was a focus on community building, compassion, empathy, movement building. Most importantly there was a focus on inspiring others through the quality and caliber of your life.
Angus is helping companies shift into this older more sustainable type of leadership that leads by way of transparency, compassion, empathy etc.
