In this episode I preview Getting Clear Within: Module One of The Leadership Academy. This module is all about guiding you in the reflective self-examination that is key to values-based leadership and provides the foundation for you to be an exceptional leader. I give you a sneak peek into the content, talk about the research, authors, and ideas behind the content, and share why I take this approach to helping people build a values-based leadership practice.

>> 1:47 Overview of episode: Module 1 of The Leadership Academy
>> 2:29. Traditional professional development will fail you. Why? Because more of the same leadership training will produce more of the same kinds of leaders. We don’t need more of the same. Ugh.
>> 7:18 Your key to an exceptional leadership practice is being grounded in your values, and then acting with consistency and congruence. Values-based leadership takes intention, openness, and self-understanding. So that’s where our work starts, with the guiding question: what actions can I take that will bring me closer to my values?
>> 9:25. Exploring the five themes of values-based leadership: life, leadership, money, power, and values. I talk about why and how they connect in The Leadership Academy.
>> 11:50. Getting Clear Within weaves together ideas from a variety of industries and thinkers, including Bill George, Marcus Buckingham, Jen Sincero, Tiffany Aliche, Tori Dunlap, Seth Godin, and Naomi Alderman. I list references & resources below in the show notes.
