Episode #63 Leading With Deep Humanity with Sal Sylvester

Leading With Deep Humanity

Our guest on the podcast this week is Sal Sylvester, an industry thought-leader, innovator, and internationally sought-after executive coach and leadership development trainer. He is a blogger, keynote speaker, and author. Working with teams and leaders is Sal’s passion. His unique perspective has been nurtured through his experience over the past 25 years as an Army Officer, an executive at Accenture, and as the founder of 5.12 Solutions and developer of Coachmetrix, a coaching software platform that measures behavioral change.

In today’s episode, Sal shares his own personal quest of what it would mean for him to lead a meaningful life in both the personal and professional sense. He talks about the moment when he realized he didn’t want to live the life of so many of his clients, he wanted the freedom to architect his own life. Sal speaks with a rare openness and honesty about redefining success, his passion for the outdoors, and how being human is not about being perfect, it is about being true to yourself at your very core.

Listen in as we discuss his Human Workplace Needs Model that he has introduced to global brands like Amazon to help them to facilitate the changes needed to create a human culture where people can bring their whole selves to work. He shares the 6 C’s inherent within the structure of the model and how this inspires more creativity, connection, and innovation within the organization. This was a deeply insightful conversation and really interesting to hear how Sal is guiding leaders to facilitate real changes that begin with deeper human connections and ultimately creates a clear path towards a deeper impact. A solution that business really needs right now. Is this an easy path? No, but it is so worthwhile for all involved. If you are interested in leadership and business as a force for good, or you simply want to help make the world a better place, I think you’ll enjoy Sal’s insights.
