Episode 4 of the Three Questions video series features special guest Ramin Sedehi. Ramin is the Chief Strategy Advisor at EmC Leaders and a transformative leader in academic medicine, healthcare and higher education. EmC Leaders is a consulting firm that helps transform leadership in organizations with the Emotional Connection (EmC) strategy through training programs, consultation, as well as publications of articles and books.

The three questions Ramin answers are:

  • In your research, scholarly and consulting work, you emphasize the difference between managing and leading. What makes a leader different from a manager? And what areas of today's business and life need more purposeful leadership?
  • What is the role of courage in leadership and how can leaders develop more deliberately in this area?
  • In your work with consulting, what has worked the best to help organizations move away from "fear-based" leadership and toward "connection-based" leadership?
