Understanding [Timeless Leadership Ep. #3]
with David Murray
This week, we explore the importance of Understanding and leadership.
Our guest is David Murray, author of An Effort to Understand: Hearing One Another (and Ourselves) in a Nation Cracked in Half. His book is a series of essays that gives readers a window into everyday American discourse–from the rural backroads to corporate C-suites.
A student of history, Murray shows that however great the personal and political divides between us, we have just as deep a desire to connect.
Understanding is the bridge between discord and discourse, based on mutual trust and a desire to move forward.
