#73 David Klaasen, Founder of Talent 4 Performance, on Self-Leadership

With this ongoing crisis, leaders need to develop new skills, such as compassion and a growth mindset, to navigate and rebuild this new landscape. When you feel safe within yourself as a leader, this projects to the rest of your team. In this episode I’m excited to speak with leadership development expert David Klaasen, Founder of Talent 4 Performance. Prior to launching his business in 2004, he was a trained chef and has experienced the intense environments hospitality can run on.

Join us as we discuss self-leadership, handling long-term stress, and how everything is much better after a good night’s sleep.
