A conversation about Leadership with Kathleen Naglee
Leadership is an interesting subject for a podcast. A masterclass in such a casual forum makes lessons and reflections more accessible to everyone on their personal journey. As I scour and dig into podcasts on many different subjects, I feel that listening to leaders about what formed them ends up being comforting while inspirational, I feel refreshed and exhilarated in the process.

“Up to that point I thought my role was to lead great organisations or to be part of great organisations. To be up front in prominent leadership roles in larger and larger organisations. That was one path.
But for the first time, I saw another. It occurred to me that my greatest strength was actually to get beside leaders and help them build great organisations. To choose behind the scenes over prominence. The role of trainer and advisor over point leader.

Kathleen Naglee had a huge impact on my life when I was very young. She introduced me to a new way of enjoying education and leaning into my strengths. She has been a role model in my mind for as long as I’ve been working in the entertainment industry. Where she was and what she did in the late ’90s/early ’00s had a larger impact than she’ll ever know. Wherever you are and whatever you do: You are being watched, admired, scrutinized, and remembered by younger people. You have a great lifelong impact. You have a purpose where you are. Keep doing life, do in big and do it your way. You are very important exactly where you are – even when you don’t feel it.
I intersected with Ms Naglee in a time she lovingly describes in this podcast as “guns, drugs, and helicopters” and it is accurate. I was formed in this place, a lot of who I am comes from there. It was just a blip in her lifelong journey, but it was formative to my life.
