The Leadersmith


May 29, 2021

In this episode, I continue my conversation with Jim Hunter. We discuss why we need to hear this servant-leadership message repeatedly, the pivotal difference between power and accountability, how leadership is like love, the power of community in culture, and how his thinking has progressed over time.

If you missed the first part, go back one episode. We talked about character as the core of effective leadership, how to develop it, the difference between a bad boss and a petulant child, the difference between power and authority, and the role of sacrifice in leadership,


A Jim said, the ultimate test of leadership is: “do people raise their game under your influence?”  

Do your people raise their game?
