There are many qualities that a leader should possess. A good leader has empathy, integrity, and confidence, as well as two important qualities; trust and inspiration. In this episode, Wes sits down with Stephen M. R. Covey, a New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author, writer, public speaker, co-founder and CEO of CoveyLink Worldwide, and former President and CEO of Covey Leadership Center, to discuss leading by trust and inspiration.
Stephen shares takeaways from his books and his role in the success of his father’s book, along with the scalable business that came from it. He also explains why we need to become trust and inspire leaders rather than command and control leaders, and how a good leader can help you feel purpose and meaning. Additionally, Stephen reveals why the best relationships are centered around trusting one another, how it’s possible to restore trust if we’re willing to behave our way back into it, and lists some well-known leaders that inspire him. Stephen wraps up by sharing how leadership can be utilized in different companies and in life, as well as the principles that build trust.
