In this episode of The Transformative Leader Podcast, I am happy to bring you a conversation with entrepreneur, founder of Transbeam, and CEO of Flewber, Marc Sellouk. Marc is a successful entrepreneur, having built up his previous venture, Transbeam, into a multi-million dollar business by applying the lessons of servant leadership and culture development that all Transformative Leaders practice. Although he has moved on to his next project, Flewber, he continues to bring this leadership philosophy to bear to build an agile, resilient culture that is sure to bring extraordinary value to both customers and employees alike. During the course of our conversation, we talk about the specific principles Marc has applied to bring his ventures to extraordinary success. An entertaining and lively discussion that no one will want to miss.
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.
In this episode of The Transformative Leader Podcast, I am excited to bring you a discussion with business psychologist and positive psychology coach, Craig Dowden, Ph.D. In this episode, Craig takes us through an evidence based road map of becoming an effective leader. As anyone who follows me knows, I am a big fan of positive psychology. But whereas I have been practicing it without a degree for most of my life, Craig is an expert when it comes to this topic and specifically where it relates to leadership and business. During our discussion, Craig brings up fascinating research, data, and studies revealing the rationale behind well-known leadership principles. Although I was familiar with the efficacy of many of these principles, I found the science behind their inner workings to be quite eye-opening, and I’m sure our listeners will feel the same way.
