In this episode Randy and Scott discuss: • FUN FACT: a girl dad with a wife and four daughters; he cries the most at movies!! • “Silence does not make it on your calendar by accident” • How one’s commitment to be quiet is connected to their ability to think deeply • That having a “failing forward” mindset can help a leader turn a failure into a launchpad instead of a landing pad • Leaders need courage to thrive and should acknowledge their fear, embrace the risk, and initiate action. • Reasons why many leaders stall out in the initiate phase of leading • Why accepting responsibility is a key leadership trait • Where curiosity fits in to the “leading self” discussion and how can we fan that flame in leaders around us • That one’s willingness to learn is attached to their ability to grow • Scott shares the hardest “leading self” question that the Lord has posed to him since moving to Georgia three years ago
