I was fortunate to sit down with Zac Bauermaster, whose journey has not only shaped him into such a leader but also led him to pen the treasure trove of wisdom that is “Leading with People.”

What are your thoughts about last week’s episode? Leave your review here!

Venture with us through the pillars of this insightful book, where Zach decodes the PEOPLE acronym—Prioritize, Empathize, Observe, Pray, Love, Encourage—and applies it to fortify our leadership skills, whether we’re at the helm of a family or steering a professional team.

Zach and I share our personal battles with mental health, the silent specter of emotional loneliness, and the transformative solace we find in faith. It’s in these shared stories and vulnerabilities that we discover the bedrock upon which authentic leadership and profound connections are built. Join us as we uncover the strength that faith provides in anchoring our spirits during life’s inevitable storms. We also discuss practical ways to invite empathy into our daily routine, such as carving out quiet time each morning and resisting the urge to immediately reach for our devices.
