Why Hard Work Isn’t Enough and What Leaders Need to do Instead

Working hard is essential for success. But it’s not a long-term solution for your leadership credibility. In fact, you may need to “unlearn” some behaviors and beliefs that got you to where you are today. Leadership coach and author Jeff Shannon digs deep into these very topics in his book: “Hard Work is Not Enough.”

In our interview with Jeff, we tear down some challenges that every leader faces in identifying blind spots and establishing executive presence, along with discussing what needs to happen to get your team on board with new ideas and innovation.
