Healthy INSIDER Podcast: Authentic, Regenerative Leadership

Regenerative leadership takes the concept of authenticity to the next level, allowing leaders to truly show up as they are to connect with their teams and the wider industry.

Authentic leadership can be described as bringing oneself wholly into your team and business—“showing up” and being truly invested in revealing our true selves. This concept goes further in regenerative leadership, which takes the concepts of building a wholistic environment that yields dividends in long-term health. In this Healthy INSIDER Podcast, Heather Granato, vice president of content, Informa, talks with Susan Skjei, Ph.D., director of Naropa University’s Authentic Leadership Center, about authentic and regenerative leadership.

Their conversation touches on:

• How to use the principles of authentic leadership to “till the soil” and create a healthy business environment

• Why it’s critical to be willing to ask questions and truly listen to the answers to drive engagement through an organization

• What consumers are seeking in terms of authenticity and their willingness to “invest” in companies that are truly transparent

Skjei is speaking at 2018’s Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California. The “Authentic Regenerative Leadership to Grow Your Business, Team & Community” session occurs Friday, March 9, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
