Conversations on Leadership

Here’s an insightful conversation on leadership as Director General of the United States Foreign Service, Arnold Chacón talks with U.S. Ambassador, Kristie Kenney about leadership getting things done, learning how to make a difference, and creating a mindful balance when it comes to developing ourselves as leaders.

When asked what qualities Kristie looks for when building and developing her teams she replies:

“I look for a range of qualities. I look for people who are innovative. I look for people who are ready to step up and make a difference. I look for people who can work well with others and also possess good interpersonal skills. However, above all…the quality that I prize the most are people who are passionate about their work.”

This was definitely a great listen. We really enjoyed this one!
