Leadership is undergoing a cultural revolution. How do expertise and mastery figure in this? During our conversation we explore the practice of leadership, the shift in expectations we have of our leaders around the world, and what it requires of us all. Angeles shares practical wisdom of the ages and challenges us to tap our capacity to lead from within. We can bring meaning to our work and our world.
