Rank #1: 278: How to Become the Leader You Would Follow

Podcast cover
Read more

More than in recent memory, I have a ton in common with today’s guest on Read to Lead.

That’s the fact that we both have learned many valuable leadership lessons the hard way.

His name is Scott Jeffrey Miller of FranklinCovey, and his new book is called Management Mess to Leadership Success: 30 Challenges to Become the Leader You Would Follow.

I saw my past self (thankfully) in so much of what Scott writes regarding his past leadership mistakes.

It’s an incredibly useful book for leaders, particularly Challenge 12 on leading difficult conversations, and one I read cover to cover.

For more on how to become the leader you would follow, check out today’s interview by hitting “play” below.

For a summary of our conversation, keep reading.

In today’s episode, I ask Scott to share:

  • What his experience has taught him about thinking abundantly 
  • What it means to be effective at leading difficult conversations and why he’s so passionate about it
  • What he means when he implores us to allow others to be smart
  • …and plenty more!
