We can be a leader in many ways and places, in our careers, at home, or in our social life. But, we aren’t automatically a leader because we were appointed to a position or given a title. A true leader is someone people want to follow. In today’s episode we talk about what it takes to be the kind of leader people want to follow in this day and age, someone who can take on and surmount the challenges of our current, unpredictable world. We’ll talk about how health relates to leadership and deserves our time and attention, and the kinds of changes we can make today to become better leaders, healthier, happier people, and good role models for the people we care about.
