bob woolverton episode 118 with doug thorpe

We’ve said it before on this show, there are thousands of leadership books telling us about the ideal qualities of leadership, its principles, values, and ways. Yet there is a gap the experts seldom choose to explore. In this show, we’re going to take a dive into the murky waters.

The thing I’m talking about is “providing direction.” That’s ridiculous you say. Of course, leaders guide and direct their teams. Well, that may be true on paper but what does it really mean to be the one directing the effort of others?

My guest is Bob Woolverton, a career public safety officer, trainer, and coach. He brings 30+ years of leadership training and application to share with us.

Guest Bio:

Bob spent 34 years working in law enforcement. 80% of that time was spent in upper-level management positions. He is a graduate of the FBI National Academy in Quantico, VA, and holds both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in management & leadership. Bob has been a leadership instructor for the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission since 2012 and is the author of the book titled, The Part of Leadership No One Talks About.

Bob’s leadership journey started like most people – sink or swim, figure it out on your own. After years and years and years of struggling, he did figure it out. And now, he helps today’s leaders shorten their learning curve to becoming truly inspirational leaders.
