Episode #25: Val Ries, Learning From Leadership Mistakes as Sorority President

Joining me for Episode #25 is Val Ries, a leadership trainer (via her firm Executive Muse) and author of the upcoming 2021 book, Chief Inspiration Officer.

Val candidly shares her experiences, pain, and lessons learned from being president of her sorority in college. I appreciate all of my guests sharing their mistakes and reflections, as that sets a great example from others.

Val also distills what she has learned, from leadership roles in corporate settings, into a framework of what employees want, using the acronym “CRAVE.” You can learn about that in the episode.

Thanks for listening and/or watching! Well, this time, it's just listening, due to a mistake I made with Zoom…
