Have you ever stood at a crossroads in your career, torn between the comfortable known and the thrilling promise of what could be?
 
That's precisely the precipice Josiah Pledl, my guest and Founder of 45 Degree Leadership, found himself on when he chose to transition from a school principal to a leadership guru. This episode takes you through Josiah's riveting story of change during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, highlighting the strategies that catapulted his leadership development methods to record-breaking heights. We probe the balance between personal evolution and professional integrity, all while unwrapping the essential qualities that define transformative leadership.

Josiah's journey is one of emotional intelligence and human connections, an art he has mastered and now shares with the world. His narrative brings to light the influence of a childhood surrounded by the compassion of social worker parents, enriched further by his experiences in sports, education, and travel. The episode paints a vivid picture of his people-first philosophy, deeply embedded in the Outlier Project's ethos. As we unravel his story, you'll discover the impact of placing people at the heart of everything you do, both personally and professionally, shaping a community and society that thrives on collective success.

Confronting the modern crisis in leadership, we sift through the changing perceptions of authority across generations and the hesitancy of youth to step into traditional leadership roles. Josiah provides a fresh take on how technological advancements are redefining emotional intelligence and the cultivation of trust in an increasingly impersonal world. We break down his three-step leadership model that emphasizes connection, chemistry, and competence, providing a blueprint for rebuilding the essence of personal interactions. This episode isn't just a conversation; it's a rallying cry for authentic connection in leadership, beckoning you to join us in nurturing greatness one step at a time.
