Mt. Nebo Leadership Podcast: Leaders Lift

Mt Nebo Consulting, LLC

Helping leaders, existing and aspiring, to lift themselves and others to new heights. Do we have enough true leadership in the world? I'm talking about leaders that want to lead in order to make a difference. To help everyone around them do and be better. It is not uncommon to find leaders that are in the game for the power, notoriety, title, money, etc. The pursuit of those for the wrong reasons can easily pull someone away from real leadership. Real leaders lift. They lift themselves and everyone around them. This podcast is focused on helping current and aspiring leaders with stories, principles, tools, discussion and support - all the things needed to lift themselves and others to new heights. read less

The State of Today's Leadership
Leadership today - it would be great to see more public examples of amazing leadership. Unfortunately, there is so much negativity in the news today and this seems to apply to leadership as well. In this episode we explore the state of leadership today - and while it's not quite as bad as the news would have it be, it is not where it could be. We will discuss motives that seem to exist today, how we got here and the impact of today's leadership.Approximate Time StampsTodays Reasons to Lead: 2:00How We Got Here: 12:48Impact of Today's Leadership: 30:42Key Take AwaysSome of todays reasons to lead are prioritized over more important reasons to want to lead.
