Tania Luna

There are countless articles and books about leadership. For some time I have been an advocate of not trying to read them all. Rather, find yourself some credible sources backed by research and qualified study to build a framework of leadership principles you can live by.

In this episode, my guest, Tania Luna, is an authority worth listening to. She and her colleagues have done the heavy lifting. They have conducted numerous studies on managers and high-performing teams, identifying key elements that make some managers great while others are just OK. Her work is fascinating. You owe it to your team to have a listen.
