"Leadership can be challenging, even during the best of times when all the stars are aligned," says Erik Therwanger, former U.S. Marine, founder of ThinkGREAT, and author of six books. During times of crisis is when leadership is most needed, but while the chaos of crisis serves as the leadership catalyst for training in the Marine Corps, it's not necessarily second-nature to those working on the front-lines of business. Co-hosts Brian Comerford and Nick Lozano join Erik in conversation to discuss three key leadership traits most critical "to run into the fire" at a time when FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real) is highest and level-headed guidance is most needed.
