Full Episode Details

How can you become the type of leader that your team respects and trusts? Minter Dial (Professional Speaker & Author, Mydial LLP) believes that becoming a better leader is as simple as being yourself.

Minter’s book, “You Lead,” teaches leaders from every industry how to lead with authenticity. He argues that the most successful leaders are those who embrace their true selves. If you don’t know yourself, you will struggle to be an effective leader. It’s clear that leadership is changing and whether you aspire to be a better leader (or you create social media content on behalf of a leader), understanding this change is critical to your success and self-worth.

As Minter discusses in this episode of the podcast, you must work on yourself to become a better leader before creating better teams. He also talked about the importance of building trust and building it over time “by doing what you say, saying what you do, and being consistent.”
