Jeffrey Spahn is the founder and president of Leading Leaders Inc. For more than 20 years he has coached, researched and analyzed top business and their teams. Jeff’s journey into innovative leadership was sparked by experiences of collective zone or flow as a high school and collegiate athlete. His business degree from the University of Michigan and doctorate from the University of Chicago ground his practice in sound scholarship. Beyond his formal education Jeff found himself in a workshop with a group of researchers from MIT on genuine dialogue grounded in the thinking and practice of the physicist David Bohm. From here he went deep into the training at the renowned Second City school of improvisation. Above all, through working with clients including industry leaders such as Capital Group, Steelcase and Encova he forged the unique organic diversity, equity and inclusive operating system called We the Leader®.
Jeff’s most recent publication is the book We the Leader published by McGraw-Hill backed by science, endorsed by Marshall Goldsmith – the only person awarded the Top #1 Leadership Thinker twice – and includes a chapter from the CEO of a global top #15 company. Board memberships have included GoProdigii, a multi-sided technology and business services company that serves purpose driven entrepreneurs, Omnia Institute for Contextual Leadership and The Chicago Moving Company, a modern dance enterprise. Jeff relishes experiencing live improvisational jazz, swimming in natural waters, practicing yoga, and playing tennis.
During this interview Jeff and I discuss the following topics:
- What does “We the Leader” mean
- How to determine the best common purpose for an organization
- How to get team members onboard with the common purpose
- Curious conviction – what it is and how to establish it
- Why you “bring a piece” and not “the whole”
- How to establish a team where ego is released
- How to de escalate conflict as it arises
