Podcast Ep. 55 - Leadership through the lens of...Fishing? A chat with Michael Leytem from Catching Leadership

In this episode, I chat with Michael Leytem, leadership consultant, speaker, and author of the book, "Catching Leadership" which draws parallels between fishing and leadership. What's not to love about that? 

We discuss the often-overlooked importance of mindfulness and self-reflection for leaders. Michael discusses the value of embracing paradoxes in leadership, the wisdom from the Tao Te Ching, and the eight timeless lessons for mindful leadership from his second book, "Keep Your Head in the Wind." 

We also get an inside look at Michael's unique leadership retreats, which combine psychology, group coaching, and fly fishing to promote connection and authenticity. We discuss how outdoor experiences and mindfulness can enhance personal and professional growth, improve focus, and cultivate effective leadership. 

Whether you're a seasoned leader or just starting your journey, this episode offers valuable insights into nurturing well-being and leading with intentionality.
