Angus Nelson: Are you afraid of success?

Angus Nelson on the Better Leaders Better Schools Podcast

Angus Nelson reached out to me to be on the show and boy am I happy he did. One of the best parts of starting the podcast is that I’ve made more friends and have been exposed to infinitely more awesome people than when I was in my rather large “bubble” of Chicago.

I really appreciate this episode with Angus because he is so transparent … and an engaging speaker! I guess you have to be when you present to places like Whole Foods, BMW, and Coke!

During this episode we get into a lot of fun conversations around leadership, emotional intelligence, grace, and empathy. I know you are going to love it … in fact if I’m right do you mind sharing it with a friend?
