Join us this week as we welcome Julie Henry, founder of Finish Line Leadership. Julie has presented her leadership teachings before more than one million people across 32 states and six countries. That goes from on-site and online settings, and, she says, “from auditoriums and ballrooms to boats, beaches, forests, theaters, boardrooms and even underwater while feeding sharks and moray eels.”
We discuss lessons that can resonate with any leader from her 2021 book, “Wisdom from the Wild: The Nine Unbreakable Laws of Leadership from the Animal Kingdom,” nametag leadership and the importance of resilience and slowing down.
