Podtail: Discover Your True North by Bill George

Authentic leadership has never been more critical than now. In his excellent book Discover Your True North, Bill George outlines how, by following our internal compass, and staying focused on our True North, we can chart a course to being truly authentic leaders.

In this episode, Samie shares his central message of ‘Authentic Leaders go from Me to We’. Picking on examples from the book, we discuss the importance of ‘crucibles’ in our lives, and how these can be used to drive authenticity. We touch on the concept that Bill calls ‘servant leadership’, and even manage to combine both Mandela and basketball into the same petal!
