The central premise is that nature, which is imaginative by necessity, has already solved many of the problems we are grappling with. Animals, plants, and microbes are the skillful engineers. They have found what works, what is appropriate, and most important, what lasts here on Earth.
The idea of looking to our four-legged friends for inspiration and information is very familiar to my guest today, who’s going to share with us her perspective on leadership based on more than 35 years of studying animal behavior.
Rachel Dexheimer of EquiSpire Coaching is a powerful and dynamic coach, speaker and author who works with professionals looking for the edge in leadership development. During this podcast interview, we talk about her emerging perspective on leadership and entrepreneurship, including:
- How a dream spurred her to transition from corporate to coaching
- What we can learn from animals about getting out of our heads
- What introverts can find by going inside, in addition to energy
- Why power and control aren’t all they’re cracked up to be
