Interview with Joshua Spodek

Josh Spodek is a leader in action! His action motivated me into doing a challenging exercise—10 burpees every day for 66 days. 

In this interview, learn how doing burpees has helped Josh as a leader, how taking action changes behavior and helps you learn, and why the most impactful leaders honor the people they’re leading through understanding their emotions.

Josh is committed to doing transformative work by helping leaders on his award-winning podcast, Leadership and the Environment, create an environmental legacy. He challenges accomplished leaders to follow-through on acts for the environment and follows up with them in a subsequent episode to share what they learned.
