Tim Lupinacci on His Leadership Journey with Lois Sonstegard, PhD

In this podcast, Tim Lupinacci talks about his own leadership journey, which has much to teach us about hard work, being curious, learning from mistakes, and trying novel ideas. A student of leadership, Tim recognizes that people like to talk about themselves and he uses this knowledge to listen to his employees’ advice to learn how he can get better. This episode includes insightful discussion about the secret to working effectively with big egos; how “table diplomacy” can help you get to know individuals and what is driving their passion; why it’s so important to listen to your employees and, when they provide good ideas, act on their advice; the importance of building confidence in your team; the difference between mentorship and sponsorship; and why it makes sense to invest in people from diverse backgrounds.
