The INPowered demonstrate a Spirit of Leading that is
• Principled • Compassionate • Courageous
They come from all walks of life and all generations. They are the doers who simply look for ways to improve their surroundings and impact the lives of all they touch as a result. Each of the guests I invite to the podcast has three things in common:
- They have an identifiable cause or objective, even if it is an individual effort.
- They are the founding leader or a principal in that cause.
- They have demonstrated their application of the Spirit of Leading principles. They walk the talk.
