AQQOLADE's LearnChair Radio host Bob Dragone interviews noted author and speaker Anese Cavanaugh on her IEP (Intentional Energetic Presence) method of leadership development. In explaining her IEP method, Anese explains the importance of "showing up." - our impact with people and how others respond to who we are and how we present ourselves. With IEP, we get to be the ’cause’ of things, without it, those things get to be the ‘cause’ of us. IEP helps people work better together, show up more fully, and create the impact they want—intentionally. The podcast with Anese is a short workshop on how IEP works and how it can benefit you. Anese and Bob also discuss the status of leadership in the U.S, today and how leaders are being developed. Finally, Anese gives an interesting formulation on what it takes to be a leader. She talks about "filling the container," for both others and ourselves to reach the leadership potential we all have. This is a podcast with a lot of value for listeners looking to expand their leadership abilities.
