Join us as we talk to Bob Jordan, CEO of InterimExecs, about how leadership styles impact teams and organizations.

Show Notes:
Our discussion starts with Bob introducing us to the concepts in his new book he wrote with Olivia Wagner, “Right Leader Right Time - Discover Your Leadership Style for a Winning Career and Company.” Together, we unravel the four distinct leadership styles - fixer, artist, builder, and strategist - and the potential harm that can occur when one style is overused.' 

In our interactive discussion, we delve the importance of creativity in leadership and how leaders with different leadership styles can effectively communicate with their teams. We emphasize the vital role of 'artist energy' and the necessity of complementary skills. We also shed light upon the fascinating concept of imposter syndrome and how it affects leaders. Bob introduces us to the unique FABS Leadership Assessment, a tool designed to help leaders gain an understanding of their own authenticity and confidence.

As we move towards the final segment, we discuss the exciting rise of interim leadership roles and project-based leadership. Bob acquaints us with his innovative concept, Red Team - Rapid Executive Deployment, a quick response solution designed to assist organizations in need. As our conversation wraps up, we revisit the insights gleaned from “Right Leader Right Time” and discuss the potential of FABS. Our episode concludes with a poignant reminder of the importance of authenticity in leadership and utilizing your unique leadership potential to make a tangible difference.
