Episode 084: “Living Centered as Connected Leaders and Humans”

Featuring Karen Hardwick

Who is the best leader you’ve ever met? Likely it was a person skilled in the art of connection. This week’s guest, Karen Hardwick, a psychotherapist turned leadership consultant, sat down with Mickenzie and Lindsey for an authentic conversation about whole-heartedly leading in every area of our lives. Together they explore the path to become our best selves as parents, spouses and leaders at work, and how getting it wrong can cost us. (Hint, we can’t connect with anyone else until we connect with ourselves!!)
