DISSECTING EDUCATION PODCAST
Ep. 23 Leadership Lessons Found In Life Passions With Dr. Amanda Smith
Pick Up The Lead encourages growth through the cultivation of curiosity, aspiration and purpose.
As an educator, an executive, an athlete and a tenacious competitor, I’ve learned inextricable lessons about living, learning and leading through the pursuit of my passions.
Patience. Humility. Tenacity. Perseverance.
These things are key to success in and out of the arena; on and off the field; at, or beyond the boardroom table.
It was a joy to have an opportunity to discuss all of the above in a recent podcast hosted by InPursuit!
