263: Alain Hunkins—The Top Ten Ways To Crack The Leadership Code

Posted by Andrea Simon on Apr 19, 2021 6:00:00 AM

Learn how you can become a more dynamic, effective leader

Alain Hunkins is the author of a new book, "Cracking the Leadership Code: Three Secrets
to Building Strong Leaders,
which offers a very impactful way to develop leaders. As you know, I direct two leadership academies for two clients. And what I’ve learned over the years is that leaders need to lead to the right places and followers need to know what work they need to do to get there. As you'll hear in our podcast, i
t’s not that easy. Alain and I talk about recognizing the bad habits inherited from previous generations of leaders and why “old-school” leaders flounder in the “new-school” world. Please listen, learn and share.

Are people hungry for a new type of leader in the unrest associated with the pandemic?

What type? Do they even know? Typically, the culture of an organization is very comfortable keeping its employees in the world that they have always known. Leaders in those types of organizations have honed their skills over the years so that on the surface, their style seems to work.

Then a crisis hits, or new leadership arrives, or major clients leave. What happens? Everything, including leadership, has to shift. But to what? Listen to our conversation and start thinking about your leadership style and those around you with a different perspective, a fresh lens. As I always say, it is time to make change your friend.
