What is your leadership shadow, and why should you worry about it? That's exactly what Dr. Will Sparks and I discuss in episode #14 of the Path. He's spent 20 years researching the characteristics of great leaders, and also the "shadow" side of their leadership styles which often hold them back in ways they're not even aware. Will and I explore the practical aspects of his studies, and how nonprofit leaders can amplify their positive qualities - but more importantly - identify specific ways to identify their shadow side and do something about it. You'll see how this can not only accelerate your journey on the leadership path, but also create a more dynamic and productive environment for your staff, board and volunteer colleagues.
"If we don't manage our leadership shadow, it will manage us.
