Podcast #271 – Angie Morgan, Co-Author of Bet on You: How to Win with Risk, tells us How to Build our Risk Muscles
In this week’s episode, I interview Angie Morgan one of the co-authors of the book Bet on You: How to Win with Risk. This is one of the best books on risk that I have read and given the uncertain world we live in I thought it was an appropriate topic for this podcast.
Let me read Angie’s about section from her LinkedIn profile:
I learned how to lead during my time as a United States Marine. When I transitioned to the private sector, what surprised me was how the term “leadership” was being used. Whereas in the Marines, leadership was a verb – everyone aspired to lead. In my new world, “leadership” was a noun and only an expectation for managers. This inspired me to write my first book on leadership – “Leading from the Front” – as well as start my business, Lead Star. I’ve since written two more books – SPARK and Bet on You.
Through Lead Star, I do the work I love. My team and I design programs for professionals around the world that help them understand how they can express leadership in their work environments and in their lives.
If you feel you are risk-averse, which you will hear from Angie that a lot of successful people feel they are, then this is a conversation you need to hear.
