After eight years of analyzing risk in the reinsurance industry, Mark Hunter hired a career coach to help him assess what leadership meant to him. Soon, he left the industry to take an apprenticeship with his coach; today, Mark is the founder and President of Pinnacle Coaching, Inc., an international business and executive coaching company.
In today’s episode, he discusses modern leadership, including:
Leadership as “a way of expressing ownership” and responsibility—over teams, fiscal results, or whatever falls under one’s purview
Overcoming fear of that ownership through choosing a challenge, and viewing that challenge as an opportunity
Why it is important to establish the kind of leader you are within your organization
Why seeking outside points of view can be helpful in moving a business to the next level, particular in assessing communication and collaboration breakdowns
Mark is the author of The Brink: How Great Leadership Is Invented(2014). He is a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) through the International Coach Federation, and specializes in keynote speaking, workshop facilitation, business/corporate coaching, and team culture/context shifts.
