About the episode

“If you know you are not made for daring, please don’t dare lead.”

In our first episode, Kate takes us through the very important topic of ethical or principled leadership. We explore the definition of “daring” leadership, a combination of moral courage and inner strength, qualities on which the exercise of ethical or principled leadership depends.
