As leaders, it’s our job to motivate and drive our team with positivity and clarity. But what motivates you as a leader? Are you motivated by fear? People-pleasing? A desire to make things as smooth as possible, regardless of whether or not the decision is the best course of action?

For this episode, I’m pleased to have Brittani Miller, Founder of Creative Melodies, join me to share about this topic from her personal experience. We discuss growing as a leader, things you don’t see coming in business, the pitfalls of people-pleasing, how people-pleasing is a form of fear, and the progression into leading motivated by love, not fear.
