Episode in a Tweet: When you deepen your self-knowledge and understanding of others, you’ll become a better leader and more able to build people-centric companies.
Background: I had the pleasure of meeting Jocelyne through the Forbes Business Council, and we hit it off as I share her philosophy on building people-centric organizations. During the interview, Jocelyne tells the story of how she became a CEO, which wasn’t until she left a stable, well-paying public service position – and sold her home and almost all of her possessions – to go cruising on our sailboat with her husband even though she had been “warned” this would ruin her career. She created income by freelance writing, and then one day, she joined a software company as an executive assistant and, a few years later, was running the company. Sound familiar? Her passion for leadership and hard work paid off.
Jocelyne believes that the more we lead and work at deepening our knowledge of ourselves and understanding of others, the more effective we become as leaders. During this episode, Jocelyne and I discuss why it’s important to develop self-awareness and share stories about how we’ve tripped ourselves up over the years. Jocelyn also gives her tips on how to recruit and keep talent by meeting each persona where they are at.
