What can we take from being an art performer to becoming an exceptional leader? A silver line connects both: you have to shift your perspective and be genuinely interested in your audience, your people, allowing them to better connect with you. We all have a story, and we all have far more in common than what differentiates us. Understanding the core of humanity, our cultural background, and experiences make us unique, appreciate each point of view… From his hard beginning in the art to his unique experience in Nepal, to becoming a renowned performer and now an executive coach and leader, you’ll hear in this episode Rob’s stories and great advice for us to become better leaders, expanding our boundaries, bringing the quality of tolerance, appreciation of difference to a whole new level.
