Leader as Teacher
July 23, 2018
Hosted by June Gunter, with Beth Hyjek, Christine Erickson, and Morgan Ridenhour
In a recent article in HBR (Feb. 2018), Syndey Finklestein asserts that the best leaders are great teachers. In this episode we will entertain the question, "If the best leaders are great teachers, what does it mean to be a great teacher?" We will shed light on how horses mentor their next generation of leaders. We will be gifted with the presence of world renowned author and educator Dr. Jane K Vella. and Dr. Paula Berardinelli, author, educator, and a sought after adviser to the advisers. Join us for this virtual visit with Jane and Paula to be in conversation about leadership, learning, and the art of dialogue as a tool for developing current and future talent.

The world is changing and our beliefs about leadership need to change with it. On this show we reveal the simple, yet profound, truths we have learned from horses that will prepare you to lead confidently in the direction of your future. In the world we lead in, clarity is more powerful than force. We reframe uncertainty, offer you ways to find confidence in uncertainty, and reimagine leadership for the world we live in today. We explore ways to use attention, direction, energy, and congruence to elevate confidence in your leadership.
