(Can’t listen to the podcast? Check it out here)


The 2008 financial crisis led to some disappointing leadership stories. But for any downturn there are upsides. John Baldoni, leadership expert, believes one such upside is resilience.

“Those who have steered their companies back to prosperity did it by making tougher, wiser choices and moving forward in hard times. In short, these leaders have “moxie.” And its moxie that takes center stage in my interview with John.

Moxie is an acrostic, focusing on leadership practices essential for leaders in this post-financial crisis era.

    There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
