Much of this gift of a day was dedicated to interviews with the media. Some were with national newspapers. Some were with influential thought leaders. And some were with talk radio stars. Which brings me to the deeply valuable leadership skill of keeping it real.
One radio host fascinated me. Before we went live, she was warm, funny and clearly speaking with the voice that was truly hers. “Three…two..one…” she counted. And then the transformation appeared. She assumed a personality. She talked like she thought radio people are expected to talk. She sounded artificial. She’d lost her soul.
What makes a great team (and a winning culture) is a bunch of ordinary people who come together, strip away their social masks and devote the best hours of their best days to the building of a bold and breathtaking dream. The choice we all have is to be plastic. Or authentic. May I suggest you don’t let Radio Star Syndrome happen to you.
Keep Leading Without A Title.
