Chicago, IL and Palm Springs, CA (PRWEB) July 15, 2008
Catapult Leadership Communications and Leadership Unleashed announced today they have launched "Great Leadership Stories," an invitation-only series of podcast interviews with distinguished business leaders. Participating executives are asked to choose the single most impactful leadership story of their career, with the intention passing on their own lessons-learned to others. The series is free of charge.
Drew Suss, of Catapult, based in Chicago, who co-created Great Leadership Stories, said today, "Ron Baldwin's story shows courage at a time of great change, during one of the most formidable banking integrations in our history. Ron gives our listeners an insider's view, which provides important insights for all of us."
"During these particularly tough times, there's nothing like a story that teaches us how to be better leaders--through the lens of an executive's own peak experiences," said David Peck, co-creator of Great Leadership Stories, who runs Leadership Unleashed, an executive coaching firm based in Palm Springs, California.
Baldwin's story is the first in the series of podcasts. It can be found on the web at recoveringleader.com (category: Great Leadership Stories). It can also be found at catapultnow.com/launch. Elinor MacKinnon, Chief Information Officer of Blue Shield of California, will tell the next story, covering the sensitive topic of restructuring, and its impact on people, due out in August.
Participants are not paid for this series, as they are asked to share ideas freely and inspire others to make the world a better place.
