In this episode of The Transformative Leader Podcast, I am honored to bring you a discussion with fellow kindred spirit, hugely successful advertising entrepreneur, and genuine transformative leader, Jacob Baadsgaard. I know that I describe many guests as “kindred spirits,“ but it applies even more when it comes to Jacob’s story and his approach to business and leadership. We both had a similar entrepreneurial experience, from realizing that our skills were not being fully utilized in the corporate world, to starting our businesses free of debt, and experiencing massive growth as a result of our “serving others first“ approach. Jacob is one of those truly extraordinary individuals who, unlike many in the corporate world, gets “it.” […] He is focused not just on his own success, but passionate about the success and excellence of others, in his business and community. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say, no one will want to miss this fascinating interview with such a rare and exceptional leader.
Most leaders don’t feel they are adequately prepared or experienced enough to create extraordinary cultures where engaged people work together to deliver breakthrough results. In this episode, I share an overview of the process that I use to guide, equip, and develop leaders in doing just that. I also delve into several seemingly minor--but extremely important--considerations when it comes to designing and implementing culture transformations that stick.
