Jan 15 2021 • 12 mins

Season 2 kicks off with the timely topic of the danger of forming unholy alliances; and, as a public servant leader, of surrounding yourself only with those who will tell you what you want to hear. As a public servant leader, you have to be careful with whom you align and you must have the courage to surround yourself with staff and advisors who will tell you the truth, even when truth is the last thing you want to hear. This episode explores a point in time in the life of the two most powerful leaders of their day - King Jehoshaphat and King Ahab. Two leaders, two philosophies in leadership, and two strikingly different outcomes. As a leader, your people aren’t doing you any favors by lying to you.
