Marketing Podcast with Lolly Daskal
Podcast Transcript

Socrates and Plato are often cited as the source of the quote – “Know thyself,” but I like to quote Sun Tzu’s “Know thyself, know the enemy,” because, let’s face it – sometimes they are one in the same.

My guest for this week’s episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast is Lolly Daskal, a global leadership coach, business consultant, and author of The Leadership Gap: What Gets Between You and Your Greatness. She and I discuss the different archetypes and values that great leaders lead from and how understanding their weaknesses in those values is actually the secret and key to living in their greatness.

Based on a mix of modern philosophy, science, and nearly thirty years coaching top executives, Lolly’s perspective on leadership continues to break new ground and produce exceptional results. Of her many awards and accolades, Lolly was designated a Top-50 Leadership and Management Expert by Inc.com 100 Great Leadership Speakers for Your Next by Inc. magazine. Huffington Post honored Lolly with the title of The Most Inspiring Woman in the World.

Questions I ask Lolly Daskal:

  • What is the Gap?
  • What are a couple of things that the best leaders do?
  • What are the seven leadership archetypes?

What you’ll learn if you give a listen:

  • Why the best leaders are those who get to know others
  • What the hardest part is about growing a business
  • Why the leadership archetypes fail
