Leadership skills are not necessarily innate, like any skill, they require training and practice. Effective leadership can include a broad range of skills and a wide range of management styles; the challenge within this, is to identify your own unique leadership style.

Matt Cesaro and Mia Handshin are the Co-Founders of LeadersHP, a business focused on helping to develop leaders from the inside out. Their mission is to support leaders to develop higher perspective, purpose, and ultimately, to lift their performance in leadership.

In today’s episode of Be The Drop, Matt and Mia share their stories on how to build positive leadership skills. The dynamic duo focus on their personal growth, share some of their valuable teachings and develop the discussion about storytelling, self-authorship, and setting values.
