S2E17 The Gift of Struggle Edition with Bobby Herrera
James chats with Bobby Herrera, the author of The Gift of Struggle, a book about leadership and the life changing lessons we learn through our struggles. He’s also the Co-Founder and President of Populus Group, with a passion for building strong culture and communities through trust and storytelling.
His leadership style is about empowerment, connections, and ensuring everybody has the opportunity to succeed. He grew up in a big family with parents who emigrated to America without very much, which isn’t an uncommon story, but the leadership style and culture, company culture that it’s inspired certainly is. The belief that everyone deserves the opportunity to succeed is at the core of his philosophy, in business, and in life.
They chat about authenticity and openness in leadership, positive re-framing, telling your story, the kindness of strangers, pivotal life moments, giving back and guarding your food from 12 siblings!
