Episode details

This week on Timeless Leadership, the topic is Inspiration.

Thomas Edison said “Genius is one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration,” but that’s giving too much credit to the hard work. Without the inspiration to set someone in the right direction, the work would never begin.

Chris Voss, of The Chris Voss Show Podcast and author of Beacons of Leadership: Inspiring Lessons of Success in Business and Innovation, knows a few things about finding the right direction and being inspired to pursue a passion.

He talks with us about what he has learned in his three-decade journey of entrepreneurship and from hundreds of interviews with guests on his show. From a movie-inspired submarine maneuver to essential office supplies, and Ted Lasso’s coaching hero to ancient mythology, Chris shares with us his top five leadership traits, a leadership toolbox, and how self-awareness is at the root of inspiring leaders.
