Dov Baron—bestselling author, leadership coach (and more), named by Inc. as one of the Top 100 Leadership Speakers and host of Full Monty Leadership—is probably the most dynamic, authentic, and colorful guest I’ve had on my podcast.
To illustrate his authenticity, he took the greatest personal challenge to live by his environmental values—to consider getting rid of his car. Not just any car, but a Jaguar that he aspired to for most of his life. Listen to our conversation to hear the story, meet the man, and learn how to get more out of life than material objects can get you. As I’m typing these words, he’s processing the idea, which he’s publicly made himself accountable for.
I didn’t propose the idea to him. He lived his earlier challenge so fully and authentically that he developed it.
Dov doesn’t live halfway and I suspect he’s happier and more fulfilled for doing things others fear than all the fearful people thinking they’re playing it safe.
Dov has interviewed and worked with leaders featured on: Oprah, Ellen, CNN, Fox, MSNBC, CBS, Huffington Post, Larry King, New York Times, Washington Post, Forbes, the Wall Street Journal and many other top rated media. He has over 200,000 followers.
Now he’s interviewed me
Dov brings his full self to his interviews, which motivated me to too. We’ve bonded before, which makes the conversation more natural.
Watch and listen to the conversation:
As a leader, whether you are a CEO, someone in the C-suite, a Sales Leader, Entrepreneur or leader in any capacity you know that we have spoken many times about how leadership has not simply changed, itâ€™s radically changed. That loyalty doesnâ€™t come just because you pay more than a competitor. But what can you do to create the kind of loyalty that countsâ€¦is there in fact a step by step process?
