Red Energy and Empathy – Jeremy Morgan

Have you ever walked one million steps in 35 days; carrying your life in a bag-pack, walk and reflect? Going through this experience, “you just be”. From the impostor’s syndrome to the Camino de Santiago in Spain, walking us through how he combined the red energy and drive with even more crucial leadership skills: empathy, harmony and authentic care. An episode full of stories, and real-life experiences, from early-career advice to life-learning experiences as an executive in the Healthcare Industry. An episode, you start and you won’t be able to stop!

When asked about diversity and inclusion, Jeremy recommend reading “Delusions Of Gender” by Cordelia Fine. The book made him reflect on privileges and the importance of building environments where people feel respected and every person can bring their own self.

“You can’t serve others until you care about yourself.”
