“The Peter Principle and approaching leadership from a place of service” with Dov Baron, Leadership Strategist

E45 & 46: “The Peter Principle and approaching leadership from a place of service” with Dov Baron, Leadership Strategist

In this two-part set of Powerful at Work Radio podcast episodes, Rosa speaks to Dov Baron, Leadership Strategist. As someone with years of experience and a global leadership perspective, Dov has seen many companies experience the Peter Principle. The Peter Principle happens when someone has risen up through the ranks and is now in a leadership position, but without the leadership skills necessary to successfully lead. This ends up being a recipe for disaster for everyone involved. 

In Episode 45, Rosa and Dov explore the deeper layers of emotional maturity and the deep work that is needed to achieve it. Dov encourages leaders to focus on becoming a better leader by working on both their emotional intelligence and their emotional maturity. As a bonus, you’ll hear his example about empathy versus compassion.
