The opportunity to lead is a special one; what a person does with it determines not just whether or not he or she will lead, but also what sort of impact that person will have on others.
One person I believe is making the most of opportunities to lead is Nancy VanReece. She was kind enough to chat with me over coffee for the first recorded interview for The Cannonball Podcast. Give it a listen.
What you'll find is an open and interesting conversation about opportunity. A big theme we chased down was how leaders can determine which opportunities are worth taking advantage of and what leaders can do to provide opportunities to others.
During the interview, Nancy said: "Good leadership is providing opportunities for other people." What a great view of servant leadership!
I'm excited to be bringing more interviews to you as part of The Cannonball Podcast. Be sure you subscribe via iTunes to get these delivered to you fresh each Friday.
Thanks for listening!
