Ep5 - Accountability in Leadership w/ Errol Doebler

In this podcast, a former Navy Seal/FBI Agent shares insights on instilling initiative and autonomy in teams while ensuring accountability in leadership.

“We start with the pain around awareness and self-reflection, and then we identify the behaviours that we need”

“If you give me that initiative and autonomy to make my own plan and act on it the way I best see fit… what other motivation does anybody need?”

On this episode of the Young Leaders in Tech Podcast, we spoke to Errol Doebler. Errol is the founder of Leader 193, a leadership consulting firm, and the author of “the Process, Art, and Science of Leadership”.

Errol is also a former Navy SEAL, former FBI Special Agent, and he uses all of these experiences to help teach business leaders around the world.
