Leadership and Followership at all Levels
In this episode, Christian Anschuetz shares his intention-based leadership style, and how his military career influenced his leadership style, and helped him thrive in a corporate career. He also discusses how he aims to change the lives of veterans through his work with Project Relo. He talks about the need for leaders throughout the organization – regardless of title. He also discusses how “followership” is key. He defines effective leadership as one where an environment exists where people work outside their comfort zone, innovate, and work with a “spring in their step.” Basically, effective leadership is when people follow willingly. As a leader, Christian creates teams of people who are innovative, support each other through risky situations, and help one another to eliminate the fear of failure.
